Have I Mentioned I L.O.V.E Blogs???

More specifically, I am in love with every blog that allows me to be a voyeur into other people's lives adoption blogs :). About a month ago, I had written THIS blog entry of my own about "Gotcha Day Celebrations." If you are anything like me, you aren't going to click on the link. So, to summarize, we were a little uneasy about the phrase "gotcha day" because it can imply different things to different people (you really are going to have to click the link for more explanation, sorry). We are aiming to strive to use the "appropriate" language, not to be politically correct because that is rarely something I am successful at, but because we already respect our child (though we have yet to meet, hear of, or see pictures of), and we have immense, unspeakable respect and love for his/her birth family. The least we can do is to strive to use loving, words and language. 

Well, tonight, I was stalking reading a new (to me) blog. She and her family have decided to celebrate "Famiversary." The skies open up, the angels start singing... My dear husband LOVES to combine 2 words for a new word. i.e. Ginormous (giant/enormous--he claims he used this BEFORE Will Ferrel in 'Elf'), Shants (Shorts/Pants), Snart (Sneeze/Fart), Snurt (snow/dirt) ---FYI--I don't believe he made any of these up, but the man can say anything with conviction, and you start to believe it or just go with it or you will be talking about it for DAYS. So, I knew IMMEDIATELY that he would be 100% on board with "Famiversary" and so am I. We can mark the yearly anniversary of growing our family. Fantastic! Now, much like the woman who coined the term "famiversary" we need to pick exactly which day that will be. Humph. Read HER blog to find out why that is a chore. 

Gotcha Day
