The thrill of justice, the agony of publicity.

The woman who defrauded us a few months ago has been arrested. We were in a rather large group of people that she maliciously attacked. So large, in fact, that she will be brought up on federal charges.

This post will be annoyingly short and devoid of information. I am currently working on my Victim Impact Statement. So I need to focus. I also want to make sure nothing jeopardizes her being severely punished. I will give more info later, if I take too long you can try nagging me. Though it's never worked before, it just might this time.

Happy Birthday!

Yesterday our sweet son turned three years old! Here is an overview of the day:

Waking to balloons and a "Happy Birthday" serenade.

Breakfast of a smiley-faced chocolate chip pancake and a free muffin


Sliding, Climbing, Jumping

A favorite dinner: spaghetti and meatballs!

We love you, sweet boy!

Insert Creative Title Here

Here is an update. For some reason all creativity has left my head right now. So here are some facts for ya:

Our meeting went really well. It wasn't as effortless as our meeting with the first birth mom. But in hind site, that's because the first woman wasn't facing a massive loss in her life.

I spent about an hour and a half with Amanda. M was there for the first hour, but then had to leave for work. I'm really glad we met because we were able to get more information about her history. She really didn't write anything down at the agency because she wants it to be a closed adoption. She was afraid if she gave too much information our son would find her in later years. But the extra information she gave us verbally will help our son have a better idea of his beginnings before he was ours.

We met with our agency yesterday to sign final paperwork with them. We'll meet with our attorney next Wednesday to get as much paperwork done before the birth as possible. So now we're just waiting for the birth. Amanda wants to be induced, but her doctor won't even consider it before she is 38 weeks. She'll be 38 weeks on March 26th. So I'm expecting a baby in late March. Woo hoo!

In (somewhat) unrelated news: I got an email from the social worker at the previous agency. She said a detective would like to speak with me to get information so they can make a case against the previous "birth mom." So I have an appointment with him next Monday. I am so glad that steps are being taken to keep her from hurting any more families.

Have a sunny weekend!
