Thanksgiving Blessings

I hope you are all stuffed to the gills, and enjoying some after-Thanksgiving relaxation. If you're anything like me, you're ready to sleep off all the food. Before I head to bed, though, I thought you all might want to know about the extra-special blessing I got for the holiday - the baby girl we've been planning to adopt was born on Tuesday night! We were a little shocked, since she's not due for another 3 weeks, but she's beautiful and healthy. She weighs 6 lbs. 7 oz. and is 20 inches long. Because this will be a closed adoption, I can't give you too many specifics, and I feel like I shouldn't post pictures here, but I wanted to tell you all my good news.

I will be out of town until next week, so I won't be posting any reviews. I'll be reading, of course, and will post when I can. Thanks for your patience :)

This year, I am especially thankful for all of my friends (online and off), my family and the many, many blessings I receive from God. I truly don't deserve a life this good!

Happy Thanksgiving, everybody!


  1. WOW! Another Thanksgiving blessing! Congratulations Mommy! Wishing you some reading time, sleep-filled nights and that sweet baby-smell!

  2. Ah, that is so cool! Congratulations! Very happy for you.

  3. Congratulations! What a wonderful, unforgettable Thanksgiving. Enjoy those little toes and fingers, wiggles and coos, snuggles and smiles!

  4. Of course you deserve these wonderful blessings, Susan. You're a very good person, and the Lord certainly knows what you need and what He needs to have you do!! WE love you. Mom

  5. congratulations! what a wonderful thanksgiving blessing!

  6. Congratulations, Susan! :) That's a special blessing indeed.

  7. Congrats! That is super exciting! I bet your little girl is in heaven :)

  8. Congratulations!!! That is so awesome! I am so excited for you! It's amazing how things work out! Good luck with your new little one, and I am so happy for you!

  9. Wow, congratulations! That is so awesome for you. I'm happy for you!


Comments make me feel special, so go crazy! Just keep it clean and civil. Feel free to speak your mind (I always do), but be aware that I will delete any offensive comments.

P.S.: Don't panic if your comment doesn't show up right away. I have to approve each one before it posts to prevent spam. It's annoying, but it works!
