If you are a perspective Adoptive parent, there is no question that is off limits. I only ask that none be asked in front of the boys. I am happy to answer detail-oriented questions as well as emotional questions. I'd love to help in any way I can.
Also understand please that I am a Mommy above all else. I am extremely passionate about my children and family is number one. I may come off as sounding harsh in this blog but it is more my passion and my protective nature that is oozing out. I hope I am not too off-putting. I am just trying to be honest with no sugar coating. So, let's begin... :)

I want people to comment on my baby carrier or ask if he is a good eater. I want people to comment on how amazing his head control is (little man is wicked strong - at 9 weeks old he is already rolling over!) I want people to know, automatically, with the first glance that we are, absolutely and completely, a family. But...
Obviously when you look at our family these days, we do look a little different than most families.
