Good news / sad news

The Good News: 203

As of Wednesday my family is growing. We are going to go and pick up our adoptive daughter. It has taken 16 months but the wait is finally over. We are very excited as she will be the first girl in my family 200 200

The sad news:

As soon as we get back my truck will be driven by my wife most of the time. We cannot fit all 3 car seats in the back of her current car. It is ok because I feel a lot happier knowing she is in a bigger vehicle. Also my Fronty has so many safety features ( ABS, ABLS, Side curtain and roll over air bags ). Plus she looks dang good driving it 209

Congrats Avenger!
This is the best news I have heard all week, you have provided a lifetime of stability and possibly a University Education for someone who could have been a throwaway. Good for you and Mrs. Avenger.

Thanks everyone, we always wanted to adopt. We were not able to do it until recently. She comes from my native land of Guatemala. We are very blessed and happy. My kids make everything worth it and she is no different.

That would be awesome but I do not think she would go for that. I'll let you guys know as soon as we start looking. I am kinda hoping she likes the Fronty and maybe I can get another one ( can you say diesel... ahh -- come on Nissan!!)

Hey, Avenger--
Congrats on the new daughter 185
Please accept my pastoral advice that I, an old hand at parenting, offer to all the parents in my congregation:
1. Your baby is beautiful, but nobody outside the family wants to see 20 pictures of her.
2. Cherish her as a gift from God, because she's leaving home for college tomorrow.
Blessings,
jack <><

We are back 203

Everything was very smooth and took a lot less time to accomplish. We were able to go visit a couple of places. Here is a link to the album:

SA, Congrats on the new addition, and X2 on Reverend Biker's comment, treat her like She's leaving for college tomorrow, because She is. WW has distant Rellies in Centro Am, the DNA there has had to survive through all sorts of catastrophic things in every lifetime. And b4 you know it, the boys are going to be attracted to her like flies on stink. Consult Mobeebo for the proper firearms and ammunition to purchase. Wink

I'm new to this forum, but couldn't pass up an opportunity to extend my congratulations to you and your growing family. My wife and I have some friends who are preparing to adopt a lillte girl within the next couple of months. Just like you guys, they are rather excited ... for good reason. We have 6 year old B/G Twins ourselves. What a handful they are, but I wouldn't trade them for the world. Congrats again.
