I made a new photo header for the blog tonight. This time I wanted to show pictures of when the girls came home and pictures that are recent. They sure have grown up!!!!!
Being a mom is so fun, and full of adventure! I remember taking each of those older photos and it just seems like yesterday!
Our youngest son just turned 30, and that seemed like not so long ago too! :)
We have some fun news! Our 3rd son Joseph, Rebecca, Sam, Truman and Felix are headed to Dallas!
They will be arriving in August, and Joseph will be starting his Doctoral Program at UTD!
We are very excited for them and for us! I get Ya-Ya time! I cannot wait to squeeze little cheeks and hold Felix for the first time. :)
I know it is going to be a big transition for them, as they have been in Maryland for the last 10 years!
But it will be awesome having 3 out of 4 of our guys close by!
Most of the cousins will be able to play together and grow up together! SO FUN!
One of my blogger friends had some snarky remarks made to her in a comment. I don't know why folks are so rude. We have had our share too, but really.... it is so unnecessary! I guess some people feel powerful behind anonymous rudeness. :/
There are many adoptive parents who blog and share with others a part of their lives. They share not for glory or attention, but for those who come behind, to pass on vital information and experience, and to share in the joy of life. It IS joyful! It is rich! It is full of new experience! They share from their hearts and give of their time to educate and enrich others that they don't even know. None claim to be perfect or have all the answers. But with an abundance of ideas and shared wisdom, maybe somebody else's life can be blessed! I know I am blessed greatly!
Thank you for reading! I truly appreciate you! And feel free to drop a friendly line in the comments section! We love hearing from you.
