My Fortune Cookie Said..
May 7, 2009. A week before I was to leave for Guatemala last year I had a fortune cookie with Chris. We always share our fortunes and sometimes Chris will even keep his in his pocket for good luck. My cookie said "your lucky number is seven" Christopher's cookie said "a short stranger will soon enter your life with blessings to share". Little did we know how much those fortunes would mean to us. We did not know our Embassy day when I left for Guatemala, we were still waiting for DNA to be done. When I arrived we reunited with our friends we had met on a previous trip, they gave us the best tip ever. "Call the Embassy and ask them to take you stand by" they said. Well, to cut a long story short, it took me a very long time to get through to the embassy via phone, but when I did, they scheduled me the next day, May 7th!! Both of those fortunes are now part of your scrapbook, Nicco. I'll never forget this day as long as I live. You cried the entire time at the US Embassy and everyone knew who you were. It would be the one and only time I have ever seen you cry like that, you are always so happy. Happy Anniversary today my little shortcake, you are truly our blessing!
