My Grandpa Loved Me

I just got a letter in the mail saying that the insurance policy that my grandfather purchased for me needed to have the contact information updated. What?

It turns out that he purchased the policy when I was 4 years old. My grandparents and great grandparents bought me savings bonds and tried to make sure that I would have a good start in life. They loved me.

I’m not saying this to say that if you don’t do those things, you don’t love your kids. I’m saying it to say that¬† …¬† they loved me and showed it by doing things that would make my life easier.

I am doing the same for my kids by purchasing them stock and contributing to their college savings plans. I hope my kids feel loved when they realize that we have been plotting on giving them a good life since before they were born.


Property Management Company Agrees to $500,000



As you know, we’ve been trying to get approval from the property management company that rents our house to have pre-adoptive children on the premises. As you know, this has been an issue. This morning the property management company that rents our house came back and said:

This is fine, good luck with your adoption

Whoo hoo!

The problem is (you knew that there was a problem) that I asked them to respond to the CCL worker and let her know that it’s okay for us to have a placement …. but of course that isn’t what happened. The woman responded to me with the above vague statement about accepting the $500,000 worth of renter’s insurance. I forwarded it to CCL. I’m hoping that everything is okay.

Wish us luck!
