I'm an aunt!

I'd post pics, but my sister and brother-in-law haven't posted any publicly yet. But.

I am finally an aunt!

My sister and brother-in-law had been trying to adopt for some time. They came close in late January/early February... close enough to fly out to Wisconsin and spend weeks getting jerked around by the birthmother, who had been scamming them the entire time (they'd been paying a lot of expenses for her for five months). (I wrote a very angry post about this at the time, but took it down because it was still so painful for the entire family. Yeah, we were going through a lot behind the scenes then.)

So this time, when they got the call on Friday that a birthmother was interested in their profile... I was really holding my breath. And making certain demands of the universe. Because once was cruel enough, don't do this to them twice...

The birthmom signed the papers last night. *sigh of relief*

So! I have a niece! This is who I was speed-knitting the layette for earlier this year. :)

Her name is Brielle and she is adorable.

In related news, hey, I'll be in Florida next month, so Florida friends, let's hang out. :)
