Cutie Patootie's Everywhere...

Today, I received pictures from friends of my parents who are in China getting their sweet bundle. Her name is Cai, she is 9 months and she is so chubby and sweet. I just want to squeeze her. It seems that she loves her bath and her brother and sister love her already!!!

Okay, so catching up a bit and Fathers Day...

Well, for fathers day, dad and I went bike riding -- no this is not a photo of us, but I thought it was funny and you know my sick sense of humor... Anyhoo, I couldn't ride and take photos but maybe one day I'll be talented enough to do that. We went down to the waterfront downtown and rode for almost 2 hours. It was really a lot of fun!! I can't wait to go again. Then afterward we went to lunch and then we went to have pedicures together. He was hesitant at first but once they started working on us, he was pretty much liking it!! Then on Sunday everyone came over for a cookout and swimming! It was a great weekend!

So Far behind...

Well another round of referrals have matched and we are now up to November 7, 2005. Getting closer !

In a zoo in California, a mother tiger gave birth to a rare set of triplet tiger cubs. Unfortunately, due to complications in the pregnancy, the cubs were born prematurely and due to their tiny size, they died shortly after birth.

The mother tiger after recovering from the delivery, suddenly started to decline in health, although physically she was fine. The veterinarians felt that the loss of her litter had caused the tigress to fall into a depression. The doctors decided that if the tigress could surrogate another mother's cubs, perhaps she would improve.

After checking with many other zoos across the country, the depressing news was that there were no tiger cubs of the right age to introduce to the mourning mother. The veterinarians decided to try something that had never been tried in a zoo environment. Sometimes a mother of one species will take on the care of a different species. The only orphans" that could be found quickly, were a litter of weanling pigs. The zoo keepers and vets wrapped the piglets in tiger skin and placed the babies around the mother tiger.

Take a won't believe your eyes!!

This is so precious and reminds me that it is just like those of us waiting on babies, I doesn't matter where they come from, what country, what color, what culture, when you are to be a mother, you just need one to call your own no matter what!! I think it is great!!
