Happy Announcement

Postby Michael Close » October 12th, 2007, 7:04 pm

Im very happy to finally announce that Lisa and I, along with our daughter Ava Rosabelle, will be returning to Las Vegas next week.

Ava is officially ours, and we could not be happier.

We have enjoyed getting to know the people and the culture of Guatemala, but man, are we glad to be going home.

Thanks to those of you who have emailed words of encouragement during this long, tough process.

Best

Close

Hey, Michael Close is a daddy! Congrats!

It's not magic but...the name of Michael's daughter spelled backwards isn't Erdnase or Diagonal Palm Shift, but rather which 17th century composer?

MJ :D

Actually, Rosabelle is a name that has magical significance, but we did not give her that middle name for that reason. It is a combination of Rose (a feminine form of Ross) and Isabel, two names that are significant to Lisa and me.

Congratulations! Be sure to get the adoption credit on your income tax return. Sorry but old habits are hard to break.

Actually, I was just kidding about the composer thing. Michael Close has always been one of my absolute favorite magicians/writers, and having read just about all of his reviews over the years I figured that he would choose a name with lots of significance. Sorry for the confusion.

I'm quite thankful that the magic world has guys like Michael Close and Whit Haydn--one could only benefit by reading anything they have to say about magic, theory, etc.

I wonder if anyone has been booked in advance to perform at the child's birthday party in a few years!

Michael, my wife and I adopted just over a year ago, and we are so, so happy. It's an incredible process that is always such a wonderful story. Someday I would love to hear yours. Best of luck, have fun, get home safe!

Hey Mike, congratulations and best of luck to you and Lisa. Little Ava is lucky to have one of the hippest dads around. I'm sure you'll be a great father, but somehow, I see Lisa as the "eat your vegetables young lady" parent.

Mazal Tov!!

A whole new chapter of your life is opening and I wish you all nothing but joy!

It is a good thing you memorized a deck before the baby, because I can attest it can't be done after.
