I don't have any ideas but I'm so excited for you! Will we be able to see pictures of Michael and his mommy and daddy? I wish I was there. I would be hugging all of you for sure!

I'm so happy and excited for you.

I think you might enjoy it more if it was a smaller affair and he might too but I do understand how your joy is abounding and you want the world to celebrate.

You could have a Guam style fiesta. You could have a puppet show about adoption?

congratulations! :)

with each of our adoptions we went to a hotel with a waterslide/kitty pool activities with all our relatives.

our kids probably won't remember much about the boring court appearance but they will remember the water and the fun we had.
