Living and laughing

While I think about Brit many times, every single day, we do still make sure that we are fully living with the children we are raising.  I would be lying if I told you I don't imagine how it would be different if she were with us at each activity we go to with the boys, but I do make a concerted effort to be present for the kiddos who are with us.

Here is just a snapshot into the fun from the pumpkin patch/corn maze last night.  (Ironically, the pumpkin patch was out of pumpkins - go figure.)

The smiles on your boys faces is testament to you being present in their lives. They've got the best mom :)

I found your blog through birthmothers4adoption and I have enjoyed spending a couple of hours with your insight and wisdom. I am an adoptive mom with 2 birthmoms, both of whom are pulling back and want less contact with us than we want with them. I respect their decision, but I wish it were different.

Thank you for sharing your perspective!

Hi Lisa! Just wanted to check if you got my emails. Wasn't sure if it went to junk so I thought I'd post here to double check :)
