Happy New Year!!!!!! In China 2006 is considered the year of the dog. The actual start of the Chinese New Year occurs on January 29th. This should be a fantastic year that I hope ends with Abby as a part of my family. I have a lot to do between now and then so things will be just right for her arrival. Hopefully these activities will make my waiting time pass quickly! Check out my time ticker above. It has already been a month and a half since I have been DTC. Now only 7 or 8 more months (if the current time line continues-but I am hoping it will speed up! :D) to go until I get to see her picture. God Bless! And have a safe and healthy New Year!
