Happy Adoption Day - One year later

Tuesday, November 04, 2014

It's hard to believe it's only been a year since we officially became a family. I won't lie. I may have cried a little. We celebrated with dinner and cupcakes from a local bakery.

Over the past month or so, we've been talking to Z about adoption. We've read her Adoption Day Book before bed and I've been talking about her birthmom as well. She may not understand now, but I want her to always know where she came from and how she became our daughter.

Happy Adoption Day

This November is National Adoption Month. It's an understatement to say how thankful I am for my daughter and for adoption. At the same time, I also have to acknowledge that there is always loss in adoption. It makes it bittersweet. That being said, I hope Z's birthmom knows how much we love her for making an adoption plan and choosing us to parent Z. She is our pride and joy.
While our path to parenthood was difficult, in the end I can't imagine not being where we are today. For that, I am thankful.
