I was able to talk to an old friend from college last night. They're dealing with some of the same infertility issues and treatments that we went through. It was so good to catch up with her and also to talk to her about adoption. It was a much-needed reminder for me about what we went through to have our children (especially considering all their not-so-sweet moments this week!).

Our plans for this week are quite boring. I'm making a quick trip to the grocery store and post office today. Camden has an early soccer game tomorrow morning, and that's pretty much it. Brian is on fall break next week, and I'm so excited about that! I plan to sleep in every morning that I can. We're very compatible in this area because Brian's version of sleeping in is to go to bed at 8:00 and then he wakes up early and is good to go. I could never go to bed at 8:00, and I most certainly don't wake up early good to go!

We heard from our lawyer yesterday, and Rory's finalization date is set for October 27. It will be nice to have it completely finished!

Please continue to pray for our friend Christian. He's a week into the chemo and is very sick and weak. They found out yesterday that his family are not bone marrow matches, so now the doctors will start looking at the national donor list hoping to find a good match for him. Camden prayed last night that "Christian will have lots and lots and lots of strength."

Congrats on the finalization date!! We'll be thinking of you - it's the same day as our CA shoot. :)
