Our Family is Growing!

No, I am not pregnant. Remember the two foster children that I wrote about last year? Well, they are going to be mine! They are already mine in my heart. We are now planning for the official big day on March 19, 2014. This wasn't the easiest ride, but it was certainly better than most stories that I hear.

We still have things that we are working on and I imagine that we will be for a long time. For now, things are improving everyday. I will take what I can get.

I am looking forward to being able to share pictures of them. I might be biased, but they are so cute. They look like they could be mine. Well, almost. Little T looks biracial. D looks more like he can be John's son.

I do want to get back on here regularly (I know I say that every time, but life gets in the way) to document all of these life changing moments. I have some planning to do, to make this day special. We do have family flying in and we are planning a big celebration the Saturday after.

I am so proud of my bio kids. They have such beautiful souls. They have opened up their hearts and they are sharing their space. I haven't had one complaint in the past year. Wow, if it was me as a kid, I would have issues. Don't get me wrong, we have had our days where we can't get a long, but it is completely normal sibling issues.

I look at the world around me and I see how incredibly blessed that I am. I am so thankful for the way my life is going. Now, I just have to start praying that I don't do any permanent damage to these kids...haha
