29 months

Today marks our 29th month of waiting for you, little one. Our good friend, Dave, chose this charm for you. His reasoning, as he mentioned in his email was this:
A reminder that you were deeply immersed in this adoption process during a historic time in her home country's history. Also, the interlinking rings is symbolic of different nations joining together, which I think fits the overseas adoption process.

I also thought it was perfect for this month, seeing as though it's just under one year until the Vancouver winter Olympics.

It's so wonderful that we have so much support in this adoption, through family, close friends and the adoption community.

We also decided to indulge in an obscenely rich ice cream cake from the Marble Slab. Oh my DAWG am I looking forward to dessert tonight. It's swiss chocolate ice cream with Reese peanut butter cups and crispy crunch. Yup, I feel I'm getting fatter just looking at the picture. ;)

Today when I went to get the mail I found this in our box! Ryan, at Boston Pizza sent us four coupons for pizza! How much does that rock?

If you can't read his note it says:

Enjoy a few pizzas - on me. But please don't steal our forks. :)

Cheers, Ryan Ashton

Leave me a comment if you want to get together for an "A-Team" pizza night at Boston Pizza!

Thanks again, Ryan!

Too fun!! That cake looks awesome -- wish you were eating it to celebrate little Maple's homecoming, but soon enough, I hope.

I'll go for dinner if Ryan is there!! We HAVE to meet him!

Cool, I wondered if he would come through.

I have a fork, I like pizza and I want to meet Ryan too.

AT 30 the botox cake comes...

At least you're not down for the 'count' yet. Another month closer.
Another month you have made it through. Every second is one second closer than further away, think of it like that.
