we are back! it feels so weird to be writing again! i think i have taken the easy way out lately and “blogged” via instagram instead of actually sitting down and writing…but i want to get back into this because i want to remember and have these stories written out for viv someday. and let’s be honest, “too lazy to blog” really translates into “what the F just happened over the last 14 days/ i haven’t slept in DAYS!!!!!! so, giving myself some “mom grace”. baby steps.
i have gotten so many amazing emails from women from all over talking about their adoption journeys, congratulating us on Viv, and asking questions about our process! it’s amazing and so beautiful. disclaimer: if you have emailed me i am working hard to respond as fast as possible! i will respond though! pinky swear!
well, this one is just going to be short and sweet. letting you all know that this was the trip of our lifetime, and that we are so so SO SO SO (i’m shouting now) SOOOOO thankful for all of the sweet texts, messages, emails, phone calls, visits, and gifts we have been blessed with during our time in AZ as well as now that we are home. this village, i’ve said it once and i’ll say it again, it’s better than all the rest.
ill be blogging as much as i can too now that i’m home! i have a ton of entries i’m working on such as:
-Vivian’s birth story
-how to love your birth mom well
how to pack for your adoption
-what the H did we just do?!
-gah! i JUST changed you!
-does she feel warm to you?
-how to bathe your child and simultaneously rip their belly button off
and much much more! so stay tuned!
okay gotta run– my baby is crying… gosh. it feels so amazing to type that.
Here’s some vivi love for your….what day is it…….
PS. she’s not ALWAYS in this bow…just MOST of the time.
