What a Gift!

Look at this face! What a gift we have been given. This mischievous, playful, strong-willed, loving, little boy. He is growing so quickly. My older kids remark all the time, "I can't imagine our lives without Micah!" I agree.

I am so glad that my last chemo is June 8, so that I can have the whole summer to enjoy with my kiddos! "H" will be going to middle school, "E" will be moving to the big kids wing in the elementary school and changing classrooms, "N" will be going to kindergarten and I will be home with "M" by myself! That's probably what scares me the most! ;) I am going to enjoy this summer, and cherish having all 4 kids at home with me for this season!

"Oh, there you are!"

Usually I do not buy PEOPLE magazine, but in the May issue is an interview with Sandra Bullock about her adoption and pictures of her with her baby, Louis. Of course I can't resist adoption stories, so I bought a copy. :) In the article the interviewer asked Sandra what she said when she saw her little boy for the first time. I love her answer! She says, "All I said when I met him was, 'Oh, there you are.' It was like he had always been a part of our lives." So true! I know all you moms out there who have adopted before know exactly what she means!

On this Mother's Day, I feel so blessed to be "mommy" to all my children, adopted and biological. Although there may be a difference in the minds of others, there is no difference whatsoever in my heart! Happy Mother's Day 2010!
