The Begining and The End

I know it has been a while since my last post. A lot has happened in our lives in the last few months. But no matter what is going on Miss Kya Blu is ALWAYS on my mind. My Grandpa passed away on November 26 at the age of 83. I got to spend the last day of his life with him watching the OU Sooners beat the OSU Cowboys in the Bedlam Football game. I am so thankful for all the time I got to spend with him, but that day, I will never forget. I think one of the hardest things for my Grandpa was that he knew he was not going to make it to see and hold Miss Kya Blu. I made a little deal with him. I said "Grandpa I will stay here and look after Grandma and you will be in Heaven looking out for Kya." He said "you got yourself and deal but that's a tall order!!!" Then he said "Candy Paige I Love You!" I am so grateful to God for the life my Grandpa had and the Life he is planning for Kya.
We started out Home study in November and hope to have that wrapped up in Feb. We had some of our paperwork get lost in the mail. That slowed us down a bit. We also went to another Guatemala Oklahoma Adoption social. It was a lot of fun and I got to make some new friends. We also Celebrated my Grandma's 80th Birthday last night at Sho-Gun. I have been so blessed by so many people through all of this. I am on a adoption forum. One of the mom's Dale sent me 2 boxes of Cloths and a box of toys and she doesn't even know me. She adopted a little girl Sabrina from Guatemala. Her Kindness really touched me and I plan on paying it forward. This whole experience has been awesome. Well that is all except the Wait to hold Kya in our arms!
Happy 80th Birthday Grandma
I love you !

When I was pulling this post from our old site to make this book. I realized I actually wrote this post on March 11th 2006....and that means Kya Blu had already been born and was one day old!
