Breaking News - Excellent News

The meme can wait until tomorrow. I'd rather shout this from the rooftops.

Gawdessness is another longtime friend from Blogging Baby and one of my first visitors over here.

She's Canadian. She and her husband have a 12 year old daughter and 15 year old son. She's one of my favorite people. Kind, witty, a wonderful writer, fantastic mom, and a good friend.

I haven't heard quite as much from her lately because she's been busy adding to her family.

I've followed her through the seesaw of the adoption process for some time. She must have felt like she was living on a roller coaster.

It has finally come to pass. Her new 7 year old daughter and 10 year old son (sister and brother) have come to stay. She is over the moon.

I can't think of anyone who could make a better home for these kids and I'm over the moon with her.

When I emailed her to ask permission to link to her latest post, she replied in part:

I keep wanting to stop people in the street and tell them how lucky I am,
how happy, how blessed and of course, I can't and don't. But I feel like I
have balloons inside me!
This is my version of stopping people on the street for her. It's been a long journey for her and her family. Please drop by her blog and add your congratulations. I think you'll like her as much as I do.

Note: Pictures (lots of them) and my daily post are below this one.

I'll go along to the new Mum but meanwhile I hope you are fine again. It's always worth allowing time for limbs etc to get better before getting stuck in to chores again.
Take care now.

How awesome is that. I say she should stop people on the street. They do it to us when they're asking for money or passing out their 'pamphlets' LOL
