At the Buddy Walk!

I had a good day at the Buddy Walk, with my stalwart helper--my youngest daughter! Here she is setting up our booth:

The wonderful three-sided display with photos of children was made by Carlene's mom, who kindly passed it on to me after the San Diego Buddy Walk. I was so happy to get to use it--and I saw how the pictures caught people's attention! They would notice it from a distance and come over for a closer look.

We had our own Angel Tree too--

complete with a few ornaments featuring the children!

We had a great time talking with lots of people. At the end of the day, some of the girls sacked out under the Angel Tree...

Here's little Sean, whose picture was on our small Angel Tree.

Isn't he something? Where's his mama? He's ready to learn and discover and grow!

Heading for the Buddy Walk...

Well, in a few minutes I'm heading to the Buddy Walk at the Santa Anita Park.

Before I go I wanted to share two little ones from the Angel Tree:

This is Ivan. Love those red cheeks! Ivan will be three in January. He is said to be an affectionate boy. He needs a mama!

This is Sophia. She is turning four this month, and is "a happy and content child." Where is Sophia's mama?

See you later...

I'm still here...

What with one thing and another, my blog has been on a bit of a hiatus... I am still holding Sawyer in my heart, and I have more thoughts I'll be sharing with you!

The first piece of news is that I will be representing Reeces Rainbow at the Los Angeles area Buddy Walk on Sunday! That should be fun. It's going to be held at the Santa Anita Park and Race Track in Arcadia, just east of Pasadena. Will I see you there?

Also, Valentin's family's dossier (the folder of paperwork that is part of their application to adopt him) has been submitted to the government department in charge of adoptions! So now they are waiting for a travel date.

That's all for now...
