I don't care if anyone reads or comments. In fact, the only reason I am going to make this public or write on a blog rather than just writing a journal, is to hold myself accountable to actually do it. Plus I hope it encourages other people (family: I'm looking at you!) to write too.
And lastly, I'm not keeping my kids' pseudonyms. The biggest reason I had them before is because we were actively looking for potential birthparents for years and there were/are lots of scammers and creepy people online preying on families hoping to adopt. I felt like my kids and my parenting were vulnerable enough. I wasn't afraid for our safety, just careful to keep some of our antics private. Now that we have three birth families that we know and trust, I don't have the same need to hide as many details of our family online.
The good news is, I've composed the final installment of Andrew/Rudy's birth story. Yay! Just in time to celebrate him turning two last week. I will publish it as soon as I add a few pictures.
The picture above relates to nothing, but I'm using G's laptop to type and he only has pics from his GoPro on this computer. And this was a cool one. That's Sam and his eyelashes really are that long.
Merry Christmas! And Happy Birthday to Noah, Sam, G, Andrew, and Me.
