You Make Me Feel Like Dancin'


Keeping with the nostalgia theme of late, may I remind you of this lovely little tune by Leo Sayer?

Well I heard it yesterday & it put such a lift in my step. Friday was a real low point for me what with the short list of referrals this month and the subsequent pity party. I am learning quickly that this process is full of highs and lows.

Back on a bit of a high now, so that's good. This weekend I got to spend some real quality time with some other adoptive parents and a few that are waiting just like us. Having others validate and normalize your feelings can do wonders. And, looking into a happy baby girls face while hearing stories of her adoption day from Mom and Dad has amazing medicinal effects for the soul.

This doesn't hurt either...it is Mary Mia and Rod's Referral Day and they just got "THE CALL". Those guys are generously sharing their special experience with scads of people in Blog-land.

Thanks you two - your amazing story and happy ending gives us all hope.

Now, let's git up & dance.

Glad you are enjoying a high again- surely things will speed up soon- I'm optimistic. I will soon be dancin through the Target baby section filling my cart full of baby stuff as soon as I get that wayward referral! BTW- I did get a migraine come to think of it !
