Wow, 7 months, I remember being at 1 week and wishing I was at 6-7 months and here I am. When I started waiting I was suppose to be getting a referral around 8-9 months but now it looks like it will be closer to 12 months before we get a referral, so 7 months is only an another month, although it's another month come and gone it's still only another month. I'm still in a great place with the adoption but find myself struggling when I'm with my new nephew Owen. I love him like crazy but he brings up alot of emotions that I thought I had over come. He will help me get stronger as the months go by and I just have to keep telling my self that my time will come.... some day.
Here are a few pics from my last visit.

This past weekend I went to Toronto to meet up with my friend Steph, a friend I met on this wonderful journey and I have I now have for life. Although this is one of the hardest things I've been through in my life meeting friends like Steph and many others have made it special. It was so nice to meet someone and be able to just be ourselves right from the start, as if we have known each other our whole lives. Thank you Steph for a great weekend and for being such a great and dear friend. Love ya.
Here we are just leaving to go shopping. Getting ready to leave for dinner, it was Steph's birthday. We went to the Mandorin it was yummmmmy. Steph, disappointed that she didn't get her birthday cake and song....
Steph, two seconds later, with her birthday cake, however they did miss the song.
Here we are shopping for a stuffy that match for our future children, they are great as we can now name a star after them.
We did ALOT of shopping, had some great food went to a movie and just had lots of laughter, fun and chatting. Something we must do again soon.
