coincidence?? I think not...



Durring an oh so delicious and healthy meal at our local McDonalds, we found a treasure. We discovered a chicken strip in the shape of Africa. A friend pointed out that Africa's "tail" is not actualy that long....but it's a chicken strip people. It is not an exact replica or a map of the continent, just a poor little chicken that sacrificed her life for us to get fatter and to be amazed by it's miraculous shape. I mean really, if a chicken strip in the shape of Africa is not a sign...well, I don't know what is.

My dear friend Tara where is your court date???? I am getting so frustrated for you! I am praying everyday! I hope you had a great V-day. I get to have your nieces and nephew for the weekend and we can't wait. I'm taking them to JJ Jump(have you ever been?) in hopes they will burn off some of their energy.

Praying for good news soon! :)

Jodie said...

okay, I just LOL at work. I am in awe of this sign...maybe it's a sign you should change Malak's name to Ronald McDonald. :)

Stacie said...

Can I say that I absolutely love that you made Eric stop eating so you could take a picture of a chicken strip? Hi-larious! And, yes, definitely a sign.

Erica said...

Love it! Truly a sign!! Now come on court date!

Susan and Chad said...

OMG - SOOOOOO Hilarious. Just another waiting family (only 3 weeks on wait list) enjoying the entertainment of reading others' blogs! Thanks for the laugh!

Drew said...

I'll be honest...it kind of looks like Florida, or..."something" else.

I'm sorry that my mind is always in the gutter. what else are brother's for?

Jennifer & Filipe said...

I will say it looks a little more like Africa when it has the map directly above it. I will go with Andrew and say a mixture of Africa and Florida.

Chris & Jess said...

Now you must find a McNugget in the shape of a COURT DATE! And an airplane for TRAVEL! Can't wait for you to hear that good news!

Priscilla said...

well you should have saved it and auctioned it on ebay...you know...like the mother theresa grilled cheese sandwich! you could have made a load of money!

the albertsons said...

Heeeeeey Tara.
Haven't heard anything today yet... hope you do though! At least one of us needs a date! BOTH would be perfect. Maybe the office is closed for the holiday, and we both have dates, but no one is there to tell us. hmmm....

Zach and Erin Kennedy said...

pretty amazing chicken strip if you ask me. Can't wait to hear about a court date and to see pics of your little guy. We are only three weeks into the wait list and it seems like we will have to wait forever but I know there is an end in site!!!

Drew said...

maybe it means he will be coming over to america (florida) n a float from africa and that he will have NRG...

InGod'sHands said...

Have you heard anything about your court dates? This wait is so tough. I'm hoping that we all will get court dates soon. If you have time, please email me at weloveciara@yahoo.com. I would love to ask you some questions about travel plans, etc. Hang in there. It has those dates have to come sometime soon. Blessings, Rebecca K.

Pete asked for it this morning. it was the FIRST thing he said when he woke up. Yes, he's nuts, and yes, he's soooo fun. Challenging, but fun :).
We. Need. Court. Dates.

Mandy said...

I want to take a big old bite out of that processed nugget of delicious Africa resembling chicken goodness.......hmmm...I still have a while though.

Good seeing you today! ;)

Now that is food for thought!
