Go Packers!

48 to 21 Packers vs. Falcons. Go Packers!
Is it okay to use your children's adoption journey blog for your own agenda?
It was a good game and we enjoyed it....and well, Aggie's enthusiasm should not be contained!
Go Packers!

Happy 4th Birthday Adam!

There is really something magical about celebrating a little boys 4th birthday. Their eyes just open wide when the lights are dimmed, and candles are lit and everyone starts to sing. "Happy Birthday to You! Happy Birthday to You!" The excitement can't be contained! After singing we dove directly into the cake and ice cream and licked our bowls clean! On birthdays in my family the parent always shares the story of the day the child was born from morning till dusk and all the details in between. For Adam, we read from the book "On the Night You Were Born" by Nancy Tillman. I especially like the first page which reads...

On the night you were born, the moon smiled with such wonder that the stars peeked in to see you and the night wind whispered, "Life will never be the same." Because there had never been anyone like you...ever in the world.

Lee and I embraced this moment with all our heart and it was so wonderful. To celebrate with Adam was such an honor. We think you are the greatest!!
