Yvan and I have adopted before, but it has been what we like to call our "fur babies". When I moved into my first apartment I fostered to little kitties and ended up loving them so much I adopted them. Suki and Sammi were my first babies and it is hard to believe that 10 years has passed since I first got them. When I met Yvan I was moving to Halifax to work for 6 months. He offered to look after my cats while I was away and the three of them fell in love!
After only a 1 - 1/2 months of being in Halifax, I moved back home because Air Canada decided to lay me off...again...for the 3rd time...in a year - thank you very much Air Canada :( (notice my disdain) and Yvan, me and the cats moved into a cute little house together.
In the fall of that year, we adopted Leroy Brown. He came to us thru a friend of my sister's who could no longer handle him and 2 kids under 3. When we picked him up, he hopped into my lap straight away and didn't look back.
I am not sure how we got so lucky with our fabulous fur babies! They have brought so much unconditional love into our lives. While Suki has gotten older and has diabetes and needs lots of care, and Leroy needs to have his teeth professionally cleaned every year - oh such the bad dog breath! We wouldn't have it any other way.
We can only imagine how much we will love this new little baby coming into our lives...if the love we have for our animals is any indication....it will be a whole lot!!
We can't wait for the day to post pictures of our entire family to be!!!
