As I continue to wait patiently (or not so patiently) to bring home my 2nd child, what a tremendous break in the stress to be able to celebrate Gotcha Day #3 with my Sweet Monkey Clare. On September 2, 2008, in Uralsk, Kazakhstan, we officially became a family and Fatima Ibatova became Clare Fatima Reardon - my daughter! She is the most amazing, funny, beautiful, smart, caring, observant, ballet-loving, mermaid-addicted little angel and I am so in love! Being her mom is the most amazing gift and I treasure her each and every day. Love you Clare! Now let's get you a brother or a sister already!!
