We've got kittens

UPDATE: Oriole ended up having six kittens. Mother and babies are doing well.

Our semi-wild cat oriole had her kittens today, on our front porch, which was a surprise. She had four when we left for work. With all the activity of the morning, I expect she'll move them soon, but we'll see.
This is her first litter, and she looked somewhat shell-shocked in the early going, but she was doing OK when we left.

A major milestone

It hit me today as I was walking back to work from running errands downtown that a year ago Sunday will be our one year DTC anniversary. Then it hit me that at that exact same time last year, Kevin and I were sending our dossier to Great Wall China Adoption.
We were so happy then, and I re-created a little excitement as I walked back to work by calling Kevin and reminding him of this date in history.
It's hard with the wait to maintain our excitement level, but days like today help. It was a great memory.

11 months and more referrals

We've hit 11 months since our LID. Sometimes it's hard to believe it's been that long, and sometimes it seems like it's been forever.

The good news is, referrals came out this week, and they finally have finished with 2005 LIDs. So, we have moved a little closer to the front of the line. Congratulations to everyone who received a referral.
