I started this blog about a year and a half ago to keep a written record of our adoption journey to our son in Taiwan. Amazing the differences a year can make! I have so enjoyed using this blog to not only keep family and friends updated on our adoption stats, but to write my feelings on adoption in general - my own and my children’s and the joys and complications that come from adoption. And I've used this blog to post the occasional photo of some event or milestone in our lives.
This blog became a stress reliever as well as a way to express my emotions, frustrations and excitments. It helped me to sort through all of my swirling thoughts and cope with the "roller coaster ride" called adoption our family just took part in.
But alas... things have been busy in these parts and I find my writings fewer and my random picture posting more frequent. I get comments from my family and friends these days saying they look forward to seeing the photos and videos I post of the kids, however random they may be. It's a way for my parents, aunts/uncles and friends to see the kiddos even though we are a fair distance apart. So with that in mind I gladly will change directions, slightly, and continue to post as many photos as I can of our everyday life. And as time allows I'll post my latest musings and thoughts and stories...having two at home provides plenty of material, just not enough time to get it all down on paper!
Oh don't I look smashing!
And to the park we go....Sammy has been very slowly warming up to the feeling of sand on his feet and hands. This day he actually started to dig a bit....
And to eat it a bit....just a taste really! Hey, can't be worse than dog food, can it?
