Quick Update...

Okay, so I've been getting harassed that I haven't posted for a long time! Let me update everyone on what has been going on. First of all, we finished our classes at the end of February. A week after we finished our classes Jeremy lost his job. We had heard that is was a possibility, so he started looking, but it happened a lot sooner than we expected. It has been a hard 2008 for us, but losing his job has been a blessing in disguise. Losing our job, means losing insurance, and losing insurance means the adoption has been put on hold. We are still working on our paperwork, but we can't be approved until we have insurance... ahhhh!!!!! The good news is, we have a job pending! Jeremy has been offered a job working for New York Life as an insurance agent. I say pending because he has to get his insurance license before he can be put on payroll. Hopefully within the next couple of weeks he'll have it and can start working. The best part of the job is that the insurance will start the first day of employment!!!! None of this 90 day waiting period! What a blessing! I must say it has been a hard year for us, but things are looking better!

Jenny my love! I got Cecilia's blog yesterday at Kyra's baby shower. Yes, Kyra is having a baby incase you didn't know. So, I checked it out and found yours from hers. I hope this is a better way to get a hold of you. My blog is pdgallant.blogspot.com if you want to check it out. I miss seeing you and your gorgeous smile and hearing you laugh. The picture of you guys is so cute. I hope you don't mind if I add you to my list of friends because I consider you a dear one. Well, I had a baby boy in October (after three years of hoping for one). They are such a joy--I hope your paperwork and processes go quickly and smoothly so that you can get a little one in your arms soon. You deserve to be a mother. You are so gentle and sweet. I'm not sure if you guys are in Bountiful still, or not, but I am going down to Brigham City this weekend. I hope to hear from you soon. Take care LOVE!!!

Having setbacks is hard. I hope you can look back at it all in a few months and realize it all worked out just how it was supposed to.
