Year in Review

I got this idea from Nicki ( and Nina ( The idea is to take the first sentence of the first post you wrote in each month of 2006 and put them in one post. Mine is below. (The title of the post is in parantheses.)

Oh, and go over and give Christina ( some kind words because that poor girl has been in a house with FOUR CHILDREN and NO POWER for WAY TOO LONG.

2006 Year in Review - Adventures of Lawmommy

Jan 2006
My darling husband and I are in the process of adopting a child. (Why Adopt?)
Feb 2006
I had an enlightening conversation with my adoption agency yesterday. (Dong)
March 2006
Monday evening around 7:00 PM Gabe said his tummy ached. (Puke Fest)
April 2006
Well, Husband and I are back from our week in Jamaica - which was FABULOUS. (Home Again.)
May 2006
I need to get the Cheetos out of my house. Also the cookies. (I need to stop drowning my sorrows in Cheetos.)
June 2006
As you may recall from my previous post about my cousin Gwen's off-broadway show: am pretty proud of her. (The New York Times)
July 2006
I was doing a happy dance on Friday because husband sent me a text message during my all-day-long CLE (continuing legal education class) that we had received a "favorable notice" from the USCIS. (Evidently the USCIS is trying to drive me insane.)
August 2006
I said the rudest thing yesterday and I just can't believe it came out of my mouth. (What the Heck is Wrong with me?)
Sept 2006
I contemplated calling these posts, “Driving Around Jersey with a Crazy Person” or possibly, “Travels with a Complete Whack-Job”, but, I decided against it. (Scenes from a New Jersey Interfaith Wedding)
Oct 2006
Most of you know that Lana is in DaNang. (Completely Hysterical).
Nov 2006
I had been hoping to hear from our adoption agency this morning. (A bit of steam to blow off).
Dec 2006
That's the diagnosis I got from my doctor this afternoon, as I lay in a pathetic heap on the examining table in his office. (Viral Bronchitis.)

OK, just reading through your year in review reminds me of WHY I read your blog. It's so fantastic. Never dull. Thanks for sharing your adoption journey...and bits about your life as well. It keeps me going during all this adoption stress!

So glad that you are almost on your way! PLEASE, PLEASE know though that the US end of adoptions here are way backed up. We had our first interview today 10 days past our G&R and we do not expect to hear about our second appointment until late next week. Hopefully by the time you are here and at that point all is under control, but just in case, come prepared with meds and the like for an extra week. Hoping I won't see you as I am making my newest flight arrangements to leave on the 5th. Third time's the charm right? I hope so or my travel agent is going to change his contact info!
