Our meeting went so well today that we actually got to meet the kids. Woohoo! We spent an hour with them and came away feeling so grateful that we will hopefully be the parents to three more amazing little spirits. The most surprising part…no transition! That’s right, we are bringing them home on Friday. Just another example… Continue reading halloween surprise

In fact, if Adam had not kidnapped me to the mountains, I probably would have had a nervous… Continue reading arms wide shut
