I’ve Been Busy Becoming a Mom

Hello everyone!  I’ve missed you!

I took a temporary leave from here.  It wasn’t easy.  But, for the past few months, it was for the best.  I felt an intense need for privacy to protect all of the parties involved in our adoption.   I’m sure you can understand.

Here is a picture of me and my son.  He is now three months old and he will be known on this blog as Rocky.

I was with him since before he was born.  The circumstances under which I became his mom are nothing short of a miracle.  After he was born, I received a card in the mail that said, “Miracles have a way of being worth the wait.”  I’ve been repeating that quote over and over.  I’ve said it out loud to whoever is listening or might need to hear it.  Sometimes I just think about it in awe.  I am sorry for being cryptic, as it’s not at all my style.  It’s just that I have a lot to share and am so grateful to be finally inviting you back into my journey.  How do I even begin to do justice to this amazing experience?

I suppose I should start at the beginning.

    I am beyond THRILLED!!!! Isn’t God great!!! I’m not sure if you remember me, but you sent me one of your “injection pens” long, long ago!!! I’ve been checking on you and was worried… I’m so happy Rocky is with his Mommy and can’t wait to read any details you want to share about your story- as you may recall, we have been blessed with 7 adopted children and think all adoptions are God’s blessings so please share what you feel comfortable with sharing.. hoping to see how God’s hands have continued to work for your family!!!

    Hugs for you, hubby and Rocky!!!
