The Family news

Hello friends! We want to share our good news with everyone. We had our adoption finalization today. After years of waiting and lots of paperwork, it is official... Gio is a Bailey! We are so excited. We celebrated with a whole day of fun.
Thank you to everyone who helped us through this process. Your support and love made it possible.
Here's to a happy life for the whole Bailey Family!

Hello again! Still here...

Greetings, friends and loved ones. We are pleased to announce to
you all that we are still alive. Apologies for the delay between posts,
but we had to survive the harsh Michigan winter. This proved
enough work without adding posts to the blog. Perhaps next winter
we will be better prepared to weather the storms.

A lot has happened since our last post in the beginning of December.
In the interest of getting everyone caught up, we will execute a Reader's
Digest version of the last six months.

Millie turned four during our Christmas break
and we had a party at Gramma's house.

We had Christmas at Gramma's.
Cold and snowy, but wonderful and relaxing.

Franki and Shannon came out for a visit. We all wish it
could have lasted so much longer. We sure miss those Rays.

Gio got a cool new haircut. It's like a shark!

Gio got glasses...and shark teeth.
Just ask him, he has 3,000 of them!

We have found a wonderful family of
friends who help Michigan feel like home.

The Easter bunny visited the Bailey kids.

Mim and AJ visited. Also too short, but such fun.

Greg's directed a play, Nice People Dancing to Good Country Music.
The play went really well and was a lot of fun.
Both Moms and Tony got to see it!

We got a barbecue! Yeah for Spring!

Millie attended Annie.
She was a good audience member.
She loved the "gown" she wore for the occasion.

Darla celebrated a birthday.

And Millie and Gio are both
finishing preschool for the year.

We are all doing really well. Greg is working at Wayne State
this summer coordinating a new GTA orientation. Darla is
loving her job at Kaufman Children's Center. Gio and Millie are
getting so big and so smart. Darla and Greg are looking forward to
taking a brief vacation to Tennessee for the Bonnaroo Music Festival.
Millie and Gio will get to spend a lot of time with their Gramma this
summer. Thanks, Mom.
For more pictures, check out Darla's facebook page!

We are going to make a real effort to keep better track of this.
Here's hoping....

Stay tuned for really exciting news...

Love and Peace!
