Adoption Day

One year ago today...

Was the longest morning of my life.
The longest car ride of my life.
The most life-changing day of my life.

One year ago today I became a mom.  No, my children are not one year old.  They are 16 and 18 months to be precise, but one year ago I became their mom and one year ago my life forever changed for the better.

It's been one whole year and life couldn't be more amazing, challenging, rewarding, frustrating, or awe inspiring.  Being a parent is like no other experience I've ever had and it keeps shifting and changing as the boys grow.

So today we are celebrating Baxter and Atticus' homecoming.  It's pretty fitting that it happened around Thanksgiving, because I couldn't be more thankful for the two most precious boys I've ever met in my entire life.

And I can't wait to see what life is like next year and every year after.


  1. They are too adorable. Congrats on your year as a family! Here's to many, many more.

  2. Happy Homecoming day!!! They've gotten so BIG and even more gorgeous!!! Well done to your beautiful family!!
