Well, I haven't posted anything because we are just waiting for God to bring Jenna to us and He currently is not in a rush which is fine. We know He has the perfect precious daughter picked out for us... Don't get me wrong, I do get anxious and do daydream about "The Call" but overall I'm pretty busy so life keeps me distracted! My friend Kelly tagged me in a survey on her blog From Empty Womb to Overflowing Heart, so I thought it would be fun to answer her questions. I'm not playing the game completely but I will answer her questions mainly to have something to post here!! Ha!

11 Random Questions for You
1. Favorite thing to do in your "spare" time?
"Play" on my laptop or read
2. If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go and why?
Africa and Australia-- I have always loved those countries and would love to spend time in each of them-- some day I will...
3. If you could choose any dream job what would it be?
Hummmm I think I have my dream job. I love being a Home Health Occupational Therapist The only other thing I can possibly think of is getting paid to help "waiting families" make their profile books or helping people make digital scrapbooks. That's a neat dream job I think.
4. If you have a guilty pleasure, what is it?
Chocolate chip cookies-- I love them and have trouble resisting
5. What has been the hardest question you've been confronted with regarding your childs adoption?
I don't know-- I know I was really bothered when someone I work with told me that laws don't matter and Kaycee's birthmom could come take her away any time. It made me so mad.
6. If you could meet anyone dead or alive, who would it be?
Mother Theresa or Oprah
7. Favorite restaurant?
We really don't go out to eat that much- I like Bonefish Grill and I also like a local Italian place called Naples
8. What book are you currently reading?
No Biking in the House by Melissa Fay Green and Dinner with a Perfect Stranger by David Gregory for my Christian Girls Book Club
9. If you struggled with IF, do you ever feel that people regard your decision to adopt as a "last resort" or "second best"? If so, how do you deal with it?
I didn't struggle with it exactly but when I was miserable on bedrest with my second son and crying because I knew I could not physically have anymore children my sister in law said "you guys can always adopt" I never forgot that...
10. Whats to your immediate left?
My iPhone and my dog
11. If someone gave you 1 million dollars, how would you use it?
These days 1 million is not really that much... sad but true. I'd buy a new house with a pool and pay for all my kids prepaid college plans in full. I'd donate $100,000 to charity Then it would be gone. :)

Thanks Kelly for stimulating my mind!! I'm so looking forward to our Central Florida Adoption Play Date this Saturday. Stay tuned-- I'll post some pics!!
