Happy Day

Referral time is usually an exciting time but this month is different. Someone we actually know received their referral today and for some reason makes the process seem a little more real for us. Head over to Dana's blog and congratulate them on their new cutie! (Hint: If you double click on the picture you'll get a better view but you might have to scroll to the right to find it like I did.) Dana and I 'met' online probably about a year ago when she noticed that we were both naming our daughter 'Meili' and had some other things in common. We don't live too far from each other and have since been able to get together several times as part of the Desert Dwellers crew. Knowing that Dana and co. were in the middle of a move and disconnected from the computer, I gave her a call on her cell Thursday morning to let her know that referral calls were being made. That was a fun call to make!

In other Meili news, Lisa and Jon (also a Desert Dwelling family naming their daughter MeiLi) leave for China today to pick up their beautiful daughter. Can't wait to meet her!

So, if you have been doing the math... Out of the 7(?) of us in the Desert Dwellers crew, 3 are naming our daughters Meili and 2 out of the 3 will be home very soon. Once everyone is home and heads have stopped spinning, I can't wait to get together and hear all the details and learn from these families' experiences. Fun, fun stuff.
