Summertime in New York

Here are some pictures of Olivia and her cousins this July in Riverhead where Nonno and Nonna live.

Olivia's school performance

Ollie was a swing dancer at her summer camp. She applied her own makeup that day and looked so grown up. She did a great performance "jumpin' and jivin'" to Louie Prima (one of my personal favorite singers. Here she is with proud mom, dad and Abu (my mom) who were cheering every step of the way!

Face Painting

This is a picture of Ollie in Sea World having her face paited for the first time (a couple of months ago). She was very serious and SO still while it was being done!

Day One

Well, it was bound to happen, I've decided to join the thousands of bloggers out there. This site will be primarily to share with friends and family about our journey to adopt our second child from Colombia, but I guess I can use it to share/vent/discuss just about anything so we shall see where it takes me.

A little about us, my husband Anthony and I adopted our precious daughter, Oliva Isabel through Commonwealth Adoptions(CAII) in 2005 and we have begun the second adoption process. CAII just closed and we have been transfered to Adoptions by Gladney to complete our adoption. From the little I know about Gladney, I feel this will be a very positive thing, they seem to be a well establised agency and from the first phone call we had with them last week, they definitely seem to know what they are doing.

I have to learn to post pics and as soon as I do I'll put some up!
