Miracle Day: One Year Later

It isn’t difficult to call to mind and heart the feelings I had waking up exactly one year ago today.  Most of the time I can’t even remember how I felt one week ago today, but some days etch themselves into your brain and never fully fade from memory. I woke up that day and […]

Being Home: My Adjustment

How was the trip home? What is it like being home as a family of three? How is Elliott adjusting? How are you adjusting? How is attachment going? Is there anything you need? As time allows, I will answer these questions and just post them as they are completed (click links above for previous posts). […]

Being Home: The Trip

How was the trip home? What is it like being home as a family of three? How is Elliott adjusting? How are you adjusting? How is attachment going? Is there anything you need? These are questions we are asked on a daily basis, and questions I have been dying to answer here on our blog! […]

The First Week: A Timeline in Facebook Posts

Our first full week with Baby W was spent living with his foster family.  It was a truly life-changing experience that we will treasure forever!  The only downside was that we were so busy spending time with them and bonding as a family, we didn’t have much time left for updating the blog.  This past […]

Meeting Him, Part II

Part I … We rounded the corner, and there he was.  He was sitting in a baby walker looking out the glass patio door at a cat sitting in the backyard, exactly like a video of him that I have watched a thousand times.  He heard us approaching and curiously turned to look at us, unaware […]

Meeting Him, Part I

We woke up yesterday expecting it to be a fairly unremarkable day.  Our attorney (Anna) was picking us up to take us the the adoption center, to sign something or talk to someone (fun fact: you rarely know what the heck is going on in adoption).  We wore our nice clothes anyway, partially because we […]

Hello, stranger. Thank you for raising my son.

In addition to keeping friends and family up to date on our adoption process, this blog is also serving as a sort of digital scrapbook for us to look back on and remember our journey.  FYI: this particular post falls more in the category of the latter. When we found out that Baby W was […]

Finally.

Many months ago, I asked Alex: “What are you most looking forward to?” I was talking about in terms of our adoption, but that didn’t need to be said.  Alex’s answer was immediate and adorable. “Snuggles.” He went on to describe snuggling Baby W late at night in the rocking chair in his room, or […]

The Very Best Day

I’m laughing already as I write this, because I can’t think of another time that we shared two posts in one day.  Not only that, but they are going to be about as night and day different as possible. Here’s what happened on The Very Best Day. I had literally just posted this post from […]

A Guide to Thanksgiving for the Emotionally Exhausted

Oh, holidays.  Depending on the season of your life, the holidays bring the very best or the very worst, don’t they?  You could probably safely go out on a limb and guess which side of the spectrum we found ourselves in leading up to Thanksgiving this year.  For the most part, I had done a […]
