My blog readers
But, what I am most thankful for this year is that I don't have to EVER worry if my son J will be leaving.... I am thankful for 2 birth families that finally put their children first and wanted them to grow up in a stable loving home.... I am thankful that I am a FOREVER Mommy because of them.... Without adoption, I would not be a Mom....
Happy Thanksgiving!!! Hope you have a great day with your family & friends today!

The apple [or worm depending on how you look at the picture] of our eye!
He asks me quite often the same question & I have to give the same answer:
J: Mommy, why do you love me?
Me: Because you are my son, my wish come true & my best friend.
I started asking him this question and requiring an answer after he asks me. This is what I got:
Me: Why do YOU love ME?
J: Because you adopted me!
Good answer son, good answer! Yes, 2 years ago today our lives changed and I wouldn't have it any other way!
I love you JTD!

Before school started last week, J said he wanted another Betta fish. We made a deal. If he had a good first week of school we would grant his wish.... He had a great first week of school [with a few minor bumps in the road but, much better than we expected] so, today we paid up. Above on the left side of the fish bowl I introduce you to Redy Bluey! He now joins Chaser Blue [you know, the replacement fish for Nemo the one who came up *missing*].... Now I am glad I bought the bowl w/a divider so we can have 2 beautiful fish to watch swim around!

Thank you for your support and I am sorry I haven't been showing you much attention lately but, now, I will be able to share my family and our life to you fully and completely! Tomorrow.....

Today was a big day in court for our soon to be *forever family*.... Today I was both happy and yet sad & proud at the same time....
Pride and sadness because the woman who brought you into the world had to make the hardest decision I am sure in her whole life but, it was the best decision she could've made for YOU!
Happy because this means we are one step closer to you becoming our *forever Son*! I can't wait to get the magical day that I can FINALLY share you with the world and tell everyone you are FOREVER ours!
I love you Lil Monkey!

18 months ago tonight you walked into our home and stole our hearts.... We didn't know how long you would be with us and the past 18 months have been a roller coaster ride. I love you more & more each day.... I love to see you learn something new and are so proud of yourself! You are a funny lil man too! Always making Daddy & I laugh... I can't wait until I can share more about you to my family and friends. And I can't wait to be able to show your handsome lil face!
So, as you sleep tonight waiting for the Easter Bunny to make his stop at our house, know that I love you and I am grateful for having you in my life!
