WARNING!!!! if you know me personally, you may read my diary, but if you do, you take the chance of hearing things you don't want to know, misunderstanding what I've written and being hurt by it. If you are unsure if it is ok to read, save yourself and me the grief and heartache, and ask first!!! Please note that this is a DIARY, ie my subjective feelings, hearsay, suppositions, and outpourings of ranting of the moment. It does not represent objective news, the whole of what I think of a topic or someone, or even a thought-out representation of any of the above. Keep that in mind. Thanks. * Here is a Diary Etiquette Read Me.
Things are Looking UP!
OK, I'm actually not finished everything I wanted to finish before hitting the sack tonight... filling out the Fedex forms and invoices for the South Korea work, checking it to make sure I haven't forgotten a drawing (yes, I figured out last night that one complicated one had missed being transfered onto watercolor paper and so of course wasn't colored in... eep! Better here before it gets to the other side of the world!), tearing protective papers for all the drawings...
I figure I can wrap them up tomorrow for the Fedex... then deliver it, go to the bank, buy a new fan/light for the 2nd floor tenant's ceiling... and actually get started on another contract. I have a single drawing to do for the renovation magazine again. This time how someone thought they were cutting through tree roots in their lawn, even using a circular saw cuz they were tough, and it ended up being the phone lines! oops! I Love doing these reno humour stories, cuz I can be kind of cartoony and silly.
But I thought I'd pass on this page of photos from a gay daddies adopt little girl blog (ps there are a lot of photos. click on the link, then go get a drink and come back and look... so great!). She is absolutely the most gorgeous! What a looker! They adopted her privately in the state of Washington... they were from California but living in Germany at the time and it sounds complicated. They had one adoption with a birth mother fall through, and then ended up with this little girl... the mother actually walked into the adoption agency and said I want to relinquish my baby... they asked her when she was due. She answered "soon", and they asked how do you know? And she replied "cuz my water broke". haha!! So they scooted her down to the hospital. She was only 19, studying in university, and the little girl was a preemie. Anyways, it all worked out and you can see from the photos that is one spoiled lucky little girl!
OH!! the good news? The lesbian couple who was at the adoptive moms' meeting a month back, who were getting their homestudy done with the foster to adopt program here in the city?? They were matched with a ten month old little boy only days after I saw them!! How exciting is that?? They said that it was quite hairy going through all the foster classes and homestudy etc cuz they got asked a lot of stupid questions about being lesbian, and they said it was hard to not get fed up, but to stay nice and answer everything, and do a lot of educating of the social workers. But wow, looks like it worked!
All this is so exciting. That is a lesbian couple, and a gay male couple who have received a baby under a year old here in Montreal within the past year. Fantastic fantastic!! yay!!!!
OK, work. yes work!
