My dream come true!

Hi all! Things are looking up right now. I just got back from a WPBA tournament in Durango Colorado. It was at the Sky Ute Casino and my family and I had a great time. My husband and I brought our eldest daughter Morgan and our youngest daughter Cheyenne. It was wonderful. I played well over all. I lost to Pan and in the semifinals, I lost to Kelly Fisher. I still feel as though I'm getting closer and closer to where I once was with my confidence. The difference is, I'm much more experienced and knowledgeable than I was when I was at my best. It's been all the practice that I've been doing. It's really given me more confidence which shows.

That's not the greatest news though. It's that in 3 weeks, October 7th, we are expecting a baby girl, our first biological child together. I have two stepdaughters (Morgan and Olivia) and two adopted (John and Cheyenne). One day, I will tell you about our infertility journey that we've endured but for now, we will just rejoice and praise God. I really stopped believing that it could ever happen. I'm so fortunate to know Angie Risen-White and her husband Jerry, who are both incredible people that are voluntarily giving us this gift. I can't imagine it. What she must think or feel to be able to give this kindness to whom, a year ago, she didn't even know.

I've really been holding back a little. With all our disappointments, there's been a small insecure feeling that this isn't really happening and something terrible might happen. I don't want to think about it. I want to enjoy this. And as we get closer and closer, I feel myself getting happier and happier.

My daughter Cheyenne named her Chloe, after the main character in "Beverly Hills Chuhuahua" the movie. I named her middle name after Angie, our surrogate and my last name. Chloe's middle name will be Angelee. I just can't wait.

Don't worry. I won't forget pool. I've already set up a schedule so that I can practice atleast four hours a day while someone helps watch the baby and Cheyenne and John are in school. (Our two eldest have already flown the coop) I've left

Dear Jeannette,

Reading your blog entry was such a blessing because of the authenticity and genuine sincerity so contained.

The journey is the joy is knowing when one falls, we may stand upright. To recoin a Chinese proverb "Fall down eight and get up nine."

Wishing you the very best in life and happiness.
