I have decided that I am abandoning the ladyug as the official good luck symbol of our adoption and "adopting" the elephant. They are smart and (some would say) cute. They are good luck if they have their trunk up. They also have a gestation period of 22 months which is about how long our adoption will take from start to finish if the current rumors are correct. Did you know that the Chinese phrase "to ride an elephant" sounds the same as happiness?
