Adoption Update: We’re in!

// June 24th, 2011 // 4 Comments » // family //

I neglect this blog so much, I’m surprised it’s willing to let me post anything. But I guess it still loves me, forgives me and here I am updating everyone on our adoption adventure!

This is probably not huge news to some of our closest friends and family, but to most people it will be the first they’ve heard about our plans to grow our family. We’re smack dab in the middle of the process. Awhile ago we decided we wanted to adopt and that decision has evolved and [...]

There were some tears shed at the end of the last leg…and not just by Mel and Mike. My poor wife was the only one who picked them as one of her teams and above that, she just loves those guys. She may have cried along with them. I love them too, although they really [...]
