Reading Today: Oxford Pocket Chinese Dictionary

Hold on to what is good even if it is a handful of earth.
Hold on to what you believe even if it is a tree which stands by itself.
Hold on to what you must do even if it is a long way from here.
Hold on to life even when it is easier letting go.
Hold on to my hand even when I have gone away from you.

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.

I'm a Mommy Now!

OK, well,
actually I went to China and adopted a little boy.

He is about two years old. A real sweetie with dimples.

We've been back for a month.
I am on maternity leave. (you can tell I live in a horrid socialist state: I get govt maternity leave as a self-employed mom! wow!!)

Yes, much was happening, but I wasn't writing about it.

Well, things are good.
The house isn't empty anymore, with hollow rooms waiting for a family.
Now it is a family.
People walking by on the street remark on us: me, the doggy, the kid.
People see us coming and say "here comes the little family".

It is great.
Life is good.
The baby is fantastic.
Well, gotta get to sleep.

Hope all is well in your world too.
