This is Shannon. She is one of my most favorite people on the planet. I swear to you our souls are stitched together in some strange way, and we were destined to be friends. I love her. A lot.
Grace loves her too, despite the thug-life face she is pulling in this picture.
We have kept in contact, stayed in touch. Shannon totally gets my lack of long-distance-communication ability, and has stayed with me despite it.
Something wonderful has happened for Shannon and her fabulous husband Ryan. Something that got me so excited I almost cried (it happens a lot these days). They got approved for adoption!!!!!! I am beyond excited for them. I felt like I had to say something, to spread the word, shout it from the rooftops, because these are two of the most incredible people you will ever meet. (Pictures below taken from their blog somuchhappyness.blogspot.com)
Shannon writes a witty and entertaining blog called somuchhappyness.blogspot.com and you can pop over there to get a glimpse of the awesomeness I mentioned about. Or you can head over to their adoption blog.
Trust me, it's well worth your time.
Congratulations on your approval Shannon and Ryan. We're so excited for you!
