My hopes for the day:
That my Turkey is yummy
That my family has a great time
That my dogs are good while we have company
That LG has a Happy Thanksgiving whatever she does today and that she feels loved by whomever she spends it with.

So, they kept telling us we would have her for Thanksgiving, but I am doubting that will actually happen. At least we will get to meet LG, and she will know that she will be a part of a family for Christmas.
I am so excited to meet her, I am about to burst out of my skin. I hope that doesn't actually happen, however, because it could get a bit messy. Just kidding...

I have also found the bedding for her bed, but I won't be buying it until Wednesday. Our renter is going to be moving out by the end of the month, so that means that we should have her home with us for good around the first of the month!
Tomorrow we are meeting with her therapist to get a feel for what she's like and what her emotional needs will be. I cannot wait to meet her and find out what makes her tick. We have been asked by several people what we need for her, and I want to wait until we meet her to make sure what we know so far is on track.
On another note, some family and friends are throwing us a shower. They want us to experience having that special day. LG won't be coming to the showers because we don't want to overwhelm her, plus I don't want to put her in any awkward situations like that. We will be registering at Target for things she will need in her room like sheets, pillows, lamps, alarm clock, and probably some books and a few toys. She doesn't have many of her own things from what we here, and we don't want her to be bored out of her mind when she gets here. We do have a few things that I have collected for our neices and nephews when we have them over, but they are more geared to the younger ages. Anyway, I/we are so blessed to have such supportive people in our lives that will do these kinds of things for us. I thought I would have to go without the baby shower experience, but it turns out life has other plans for us.

Now he's taller then me and too big to put my arms all the way around. Time really flys.
Happy Birthday Baby Brother!

Everything went well, and I am confident that we will have the go ahead on Monday.
The worker that meets with her every month had nothing but good things to say about her except that she can get sassy with people she's close to. What kid doesn't?
I feel like I have a lot in common with this LG and I am excited to meet her. She's artisitic and loves to read. She hasn't had alot of opportunity to do many things or go many places. I know that Jerry and I can facilitate those kinds of things for her. She will fit into our family really well and I know that her cousins will love to have her around.
Her workers want to get her moved fairly quickly to her new home. We could have her here by the end of the month. Can you believe it?
