I love my dad because he does incredibly thoughtful things, like sending me flowers at school during an especially difficult week:
I love my students because they taught me how to take a photo of said flowers on my phone and then text it to my email (did you know that such a thing is possible???!!!) in order to post it on this blog.
I love all of you because I am completely overwhelmed by the outpouring of support we have had over the past week. Thank you for your remarkably thoughtful blog comments and emails. Thank you for posting about our desire to adopt on your blogs and your Facebook accounts. Our adoption profile had 800 views yesterday--800! Truly, I am speechless and so very touched. From the bottom of my heart--I really can't say this enough--thank you.
I am a lucky, lucky, lucky girl.
