It's August 7, so today my 2nd youngest child turned two. This means that today is the day that Petunia and I are finally able to reapply to DSS for adoption. We've waited nearly 14 months for today to arrive, and it's actually here. And some unusual things have happened today:

--Petunia wore her "Adopting" t-shirt from Not Showing, and she'd forgotten that today was The Day when she got dressed early this morning.
--Hester's new quilt arrived, and it's gorgeous! Trista only sent it out on Saturday, so it got here much more quickly than we'd expected.
--We went out to eat tonight to celebrate The Day, and a staff member complimented Petunia on her t-shirt. "My friend makes those," he told us. It turns out he knows Wendy and her husband, and he'll be meeting their new son Jake soon.
--When we got home from dinner, we discovered that our neighbor Green Thumb had stopped by with some squash and zucchini for us. She also left us a huge bouquet of golden flowers.

Coincidences, friends? Maybe, maybe not.

I'm so happy.

Hurray!! And I don't think there are many coincidences in life. I'm going with serendipity. Happy birthday to the littlest one, and hopefully happy birthday to Hester Willa soon!
