5 Years....


5 Years ago... (also known as half a decade), my sweet boy was born. I think about him all the time; especially in the months leading up to the anniversary of his birth. So very many thoughts on my mind; so many blessings have come my way.
Last year, I wrote a few indepth posts about adoption, my feelings, emotions, and my experiences surrounding it. So many of you asked honest deep questions. I love that I am able to share my adoption experiences with you. Adoption is so mysterious to so many. In reality, in my world at least, there is no mystery. I'm basically an open book when it comes to talking about my life and about adoption.
Once again, I'd love to open the floor (or the comment box) to any questions you might have about adoption, my feelings about adoption (whether from an adoptee's perspective or from a birthmother's perspective), or just my opinion on adoption in general. I promise I will give each question an honest and true answer. For those of you who have questions for my parents, I'm sure they would love to answer your questions too.

Without any further adu, Happy Birthday to my most perfect, my most beautiful, my most wonderful creation ever - Dylan!

I don't know if Dylan will ever see any of these posts, but just in case, I would also like to wish him a very happy 5th birthday. He may be part of another family unit, but he will always have a part of our hearts. I also want Becky and Owen to know how much we appreciate the love they have for him too. Isn't love a wonderful thing. The move you give it away, the more there is to give! Love, Mom/Oma

lawwww, I was signing on to comment about your football post (very new texas transplant who's son is on the football team and 5year old won't go to the games without her dallas cheerleader outfit, LOL!! I know what you mean!!) But just had to backtrack and wish your little guy a wonderful birthday and happy day to your whole family. I am blessed with four adopted children :o)and understand truly what a blessing it is (said even while she is celebrating the first day of daycare for her youngest, LOL!! Think I will love em more if I can miss them a bit!!)
hugs,
HOlly

He is adorable.

How is the Asperger's treatment plan going? You know, my Christopher has that, too.

Knowing how the birthdays are---happy he is alive, secure in knowing you made the right choice, but also that sorrow---just know that I am thinking of you.
