Let the Countdown Begin!!

China finally decided to mail out some referrals today, and they got through 6 days (through March 14, 2006). I can FINALLY begin moving some marbles! I know that 6 days doesn't sound like much (especially considering that we have 1,103 days still to go), but China has only been sending 2-4 days worth of referrals per month for awhile now, so any sign of movement is a good thing!

A friend is visiting with us from Illinois right now, and her 3-year-old son was very excited to help me count the marbles. (He has no idea what the marbles are for, but he LOVED counting them!)

Now Jar #1 has 1, 103 marbles; we are 6 days Closer to Caitlin!!

I got the best e-mail ever today! Look what my friend Rochelle sent me:
I am so touched. It really made my day!

Happy Mother's Day!
