Cast of Characters....Part 2

Here we go with round 2.

This is Cliff, Paul's dad. He and Paul have always had a good relationship (even when Paul was a rebellious teenager). Cliff absolutely cannot wait to meet his first grandchild!!! He's got some major spoiling to do!

Meet Sandra!! This is Paul's mom. She has always been extremely close to both her sons and somehow survived living in a house full of male hormones!! When we told Cliff and Sandra of our plans to adopt Sandra immediately started crying, tears of joy of course. She is already planning tea parties and playing dress-up with Avery.

This is Paul, his mom, and his big brother Tony. Tony is 3 years older than Paul and during their childhood was always looking out for his little bro. Tony has been married to Melinda for 17 years. They were high school sweethearts and still affectionately call each other Pooh. Unfortunately I could not find a digital picture of Melinda so I will have to update that later.

And last but certainly not least: Grammy and Daddy Sonny. This is Sandra's mom and step-dad. They have been happily married for 37 years and are like two peas in a pod. They can't wait to meet Avery and introduce her to our camping trips.

We lost Cliff's dad to Alzheimers almost 2 years ago and Cliff's mom to cancer in 1992. We also lost Sandra's dad from complications of heart surgery 7 years ago. They remain with us in spirit and don't worry we have plenty of pictures to show Avery her legacy.

As you can see by both these post we have a great group of people ready to welcome Avery home. We also have a multitude of aunts, uncles, cousins, not to mention a great network of friends. Come Home Soon Baby, there are a ton of people waiting for you!!!!
