Happy mother's day, a few months early

There's a baby in my house, and her wonderful big brother who is almost three. They are delightful. Their energy is priming the pump for our coming venture in parenting. I am secretly hoping that sweet Liam will let me hold him on my lap and read him a story. Or three. Seven stories, I'd be happy to read him seven stories.

I am so grateful to be a mom and to have a wonderful mom. If you want to be a mom or a dad, you can be one, somehow. There are many ways to become one of the most important people in a child's life. It is the most growing thing, the hardest thing, the most rewarding thing, and the most beautiful thing I have ever done to be a mom to my kids, and to share my mommy love with others of all ages.

Thanks to Rocio in Spain for sharing this link. It's so much fun to meet adoptive parents from all over the world via the internet!

Nine and a half days until our court date.

Thanks for your comment! I always look forward to reading the wise thoughts you share on the AAI group and elsewhere in cyberspace. I love Supernanny- it always reminds me that despite all of our problems, we are indeed a functional, healthy, supportive family with unlimited potential for positive growth.

I can imagine how hard the wait is for you right now (we waited six months between referral and travel, and that was last year before all of the new court delays and backlogs). I will be thinking of you and your kids on your upcoming court date and sending good vibes and well wishes your way...hopefully your children will be in your arms in no time.
