Top 10!!!!!

Hey Everyone!

Convention has been awesome so far. The internet connection from our rooms just stinks, so I haven't been able to do updates as I would have liked. Today we had a general session (full of lots and lots of new products) and we got our Fall Idea Books. After lunch we had 3 hours of make and take art sessions, and then unit meetings this evening. Christine and I also attended the Extravaganza meeting and are thrilled for our teaching time on Saturday afternoon.

I'm short on time, but do have to share, however, that My "Evan" album made the Top 10!!!! YAY!!! So we will find out the winners (1st, 2nd and 3rd place as well as Consultant's Choice) tomorrow night. I'm sooooooooo excited.

It's been really neat to connect with women and hear their adoption stories (and with others who have shared their struggles with grief). Thank you to everyone who came up to me today and expressed their condolences, and gave hugs. It really meant so much to me that my album would touch you so deeply that you would share your stories with me. For those not at convention, I will be posting it in it's entirety when I return home. I hope that by sharing my story, it will help bring healing to many more poeple.

Many blessings, and I'm so excited to post some art with new goodies upon my return!!!
