Well I certainly do not have any news to smile about adoption wise. I can however report that my dear friend came through surgery well. I will hopefully be visiting her tomorrow afternoon. I have been pretty upside down lately. No news. None at all. We are all awaiting the day when just a smidgeon of good news can be sent our way. But for today a smile has lifted my day and given me reason to continue on. Our dear Noodle sporting a smile! These photos are again bittersweet, always appreciated and always a surprise as we never know what to expect. I see my wee one happy, but for every month there I see months fading and developmental milestones falling further and further behind. Dear Noodle I hope I can see you soon. Much love to you and keep smiling.
