My Elijah {day 1}

Back to the daily posting with one last week of one last kid. I'm not saying I saved the best for last, but I am saying that red hair and freckles all wrapped up in a squirrelly little boy is pretty fab stuff. So we start with...

The Dossier

This, my friends, is a completed dossier...

The dossier, or in laymen's terms: a packet to Ethiopia with all the required documents for requesting an orphan, is only a fraction of the paperwork (save a child, kill a tree). But it's a very important fraction and signifies the end of the initial "paper pregnancy" and the beginning of the wait for the referral. We're told with all the red tape a referral will take 24-30 months; so right now we'll just rejoice in the little victories!

To Be Continued

If you've been keeping up with my little photo-a-day series, you know that Elijah should be up on the blog as the grand finale (because red hair is always grand). But because he was feeling a bit under the weather the past couple of days and because I'm about to indulge in my family's annual Mom & Sisters Weekend, I'll be bringing red-headed photos your way next week instead.

In the meantime, enjoy one of the best commercials I've seen in a long time (eat your heart out Super Bowl ads)...

And have a very happy Valentine's Day...
