Hello! Wow, 10 months really fly by when nothing very exciting is going on : ) We've had no surgeries, hospital appointments, or new children added to our family in quite a while, and it's been hard to find time to write about, well, nothing! Of course, it's not really nothing, it's just normal life. And normal life is incredible busy!
I'm thinking about changing this blog: the name, the layout, everything. We're beyond thrilled that God allowed us to adopt Noah, but at this stage in the game, still focusing on his adoption (as in the blog title "Adopted in Love") is kind of like still focusing on how long Mary Kathryn's fingers were when she was born, or the fact that Claire had NO eyelashes at birth, but within a few weeks, she had eyelashes that we were all envious of (and still are, by the way!). The point is that he's our little boy...no different than the girls are our (big?) girls, and having a blog that focuses on his adoption is no longer where we are. Adoption is simply the method by which God placed Noah in our family, in the same way that pregnancy is how we got the girls : )
I'd like to do a blog that chronicles our family as our children grow up (this may have something to do with my failure as a baby-book-/scrapbook person...I can get really sad if I think of all I haven't done!) so we can look back and never forget! So, don't hold your breath (seriously, PLEASE don't - you might not survive), but you can possibly look for some changes - and hopefully more frequent posts! - to this blog soon.
