Our house is SOLD! I had no idea how long it would take to sell and we were very pleasantly suprised when we got an offer after it had only been on the market for 4 days! Over the weekend our agent was able to negotiate an excellent ‘back up’ contract for us, just in case the first contract falls through for some reason. Now we can breathe a collective sigh of relief and move on to the next project…finding a house to buy! Now that’s a little more fun in my book.
We had a GREAT weekend in Chicago at Lifeline’s (our agency) annual reunion. We were able to meet with our amazing social worker, Karla, and to thank her in person for all her hard work in helping us bring our precious Sophie home. And we met Dustin, Lifeline’s international director, and were able to express our incredible gratitude to him for considering us as a family for Sophie. We were home only 4 months with Isabelle and needed a family size waiver from CCAA to pursue Sophie, but Dustin and Lifeline ‘went to bat’ for us. How do you say ‘thanks’ for that?
