Loves food. Period.
Prefers belly rubs to ear rubs.
Could find a piece of candy the kids have dropped all the way across the yard. Blind. Because she is totally blind.
Has spent 90% of her life in this position.
Loves to sneak outside to chew grass
Prefers to snuggle with Boo
Could probably solve the world's problems if he could only speak.
The most human of any animal I've ever known
Sirius Black, Harry Potter, Ron and Fred - our Madagascan Hissing Cockroaches
about a year old
They really are very sweet. That's all you have to know.
Daisy and Gypsy
Sisters who love to eat. They will eat anything I tell ya!
They like to flaunt their sexy legs.
Our "stray" that made friends with the dogs in the backyard first before warming up to the lady with the paper plate full of scraps.
Has tried the indoors, but is claustrophobic.
Unequivocally a part of the family now.

In about 5 or 6 months that picture will come by Fed-Ex from our agency. We'll probably get a call to expect it and I'll probably take a personal day to sit and wait for it. She'll be propped up (remember, she'll be about 7 months old) on a very ornate chair- gold with a red seat. It is the chair that all of the babies are photographed sitting on. Of course it won't just be a photograph; there will also be her detailed medical history as well as information about her mother and father if it is known. She will have a name and we will probably decide to keep it as her middle name. We have yet to decide on a name for her at this time. It's mind boggling to think that she's here already, probably born in June, maybe May - if the timeline continues to be correct. We think about her everyday, and I also think about how heartbreaking it must have been for her mother to give her up. I can't imagine the immense pressure she felt to give up such a huge part of herself - but I will be forever grateful that she made that choice.

Reason #2 Fun Friends
The people are friendly! Our kids were quick to make friends wherever they went.
Reason #3 Strange Artsy Bike Festival with Even Stranger Dressed People
Very magical when it's where you buy your first pair of "dangly" earrings!
Reason #8 Interesting Little Towns to Explore
Reason #9 Convenient Restrooms
Our second took comfort in the fact that the state had taken his bladder into consideration and placed convenient restrooms here and there. You know, construction sights and old abandoned trucks and the like.
