It's Time

I suddenly have this intense feeling that I need to continue blogging. I love doing it and have been trying to get around to doing it for months but suddenly it feels more important than that, for reasons unbeknownst to me. 
So here I am. I feel like there is so much I want to say and want to share but let me preface it all by saying it's A LOT and it'll have to come snippets at a time, most likely, because
I'M A MOM! 

Hallelujah!
(truly and completely- I'm not using that word lightly. I mean it. Hallelujah!)

Thinking about writing about the greatest miracle we have ever experienced brings tears to my eyes. Yes, right now. Tears tears tears just thinking about it. 

It's been a year, this week, since we put our adoption profile online hoping, praying and waiting to be contacted by a birth mother wanting us to adopt her child. And now here I sit listening for my 10 month old to wake up from his nap in the next room....and he calls me 
Mama.

That information on its own makes it sound like the adoption process only took 2 months and leaves out so much hardship and so much joy but that's where we'll start for now. 

Along with this:


 Because I think about this often. 
 How her difficulties & her losses were my gains & my joys. 

She is an amazing girl and we are so very blessed that she came into our lives when she did and that she trusted us enough to let us take such a big piece of herself into our home to call our own.
