We had to say no to the little one. The child had far more medical needs then we were originally told. Way beyond what we could handle. Back to waiting!

Bentos-Mom still has my camera. I can't believe how naked I feel without it!

Adoption News

The little 1 year old foster baby was not placed with us. We don't know why, his worker just stopped calling. Very annoying!

Our adoption fund has been bumped up to $1,400 with the addition of $1,000 from hubby's bonus. That was such a nice jump! :)

We do have another possibility on the line. This adoption would be a private adoption, for a little baby with high medical needs. Pending a few medical details, dh and I are ready to move forward. Cautiously of course, every time we get close to a baby something happens! This little one is a month old and in a totally different state. If we go forward and baby is still in the NICU I will be flying out immediately, the thought of the baby alone there breaks my heart! Needless to say I'm quite nervous/churned up and can't wait for Tuesday!

Where are the Bentos?

I apologize for the lack of bentos this week. Unfortunately my camera was forgotten at my mom's house. I don't think bento posts work without a picture. I did have an opportunity to make bentos for my parents when we visited. Both of them really enjoyed them, even my mom who despite my efforts will not consider making bentos herself. She did tell me I'm allowed to make them for her whenever I want. Thanks mom! :)

Bento gear: last night at World Market I found a set of silicone mini muffin cups for $2.50! What a steal, they are far sturdier then the silicone cups from Dasio. I snapped up a set in green. So excited my poor husband was looking at me in shock. What can I say? Muffin cups get me excited! I also bought a new bento box that is super cute.

Once my camera is back I will be back to regular posts!
