Blessed to be Mommy

If you haven't hopped over to read, there's an update on our new son and an announcement with his name on my other blog, My Normal Family! He's spending the weekend with us and we are having a great time. What a joy to share our love and family with another child of God! And it certainly isn't without a 'prize' as we are in love with our new little guy.

He's been here about 36 hours, and we're ready for him to stay!

More updates to come as I find time (ha!).

A few reminders:
Password protected posts are only for those that know us personally so if you fit that criteria email me at to get the password.

Also, he won't be officially placed with us for several more weeks it looks like because we were just re-printed yesterday and it may take a month to come back before adoptive placement can be made. We're a little disappointed but are just thankful that we can have the visits and time with him until he's with us. He has a WONDERFUL foster mom and big sister and we are so thankful for that! We know he's in very good hands and are so grateful to them. He's been with them for over 3 years, so I can only imagine how difficult it will be for them to have him leave. We are glad we're not too far away and can continue to see them! We haven't even had Emma and Micah for 3 years which gives a little perspective.

More updates on the other blog!

  3. Hi there, I am a long time reader and first time commenter! Congratulations on the latest addition to your family. I wonder if you could do a blog post one day about your reasons for changing your adopted kids' names? Im sure it is a decision that many adoptive parents struggle with, and I know that you always think your decisions carefully and your insight would be valuable. Kind regards, Linda.
