Thanks for the offer. We're definitely stir crazy and would enjoy the visit, but we have to be cafuerl with illnesses right now. A sinus infection would be bad news for Violet. Maybe after another week if things still look good we can get the girls and boy together.btw, congratulations on your concurrent adoption decision. As time permits, I've been reading about your paper-chase and look forward to following the rest of the journey.
