Another Milestone

Today was our monthly visit from our social worker to check on our progress and the progress of the boys. (We are nearing the end of our third month with our boys.) And of course they were full of life and energy! When they are like that, they have such magnetic personalities!!!!! The boys haven't met a stranger it seems, which helps out in a situation like this. They are always meeting new family members, or social workers... and they treat everyone like their new best friend.

On to other things.

Adoptive parenting is different from bio-parenting in so many ways, and yet we are still parents trying to do the best we can for our children. So when bio-parents ask me condescending questions on such things as how much my children cost me, it reminds me of how different our life is versus the majority of families. In this particular blog I will spend my time writing about the wonderful things my boys do, parenting, and struggles of being an adoptive parent...

Meet my three

Through the extraordinary miracle of adoption I have 3 exceptional little boys! And on the advise of a dear friend and my husband, it is about time I put down in words what they have brought to our world!

So I'm pleased to introduce my three amigos to you...

Bobcat is the oldest. Nearly 4, he is wise beyond his years. Everyday he says something that it is just so... thoughtful or thought provoking. He is the first to ask WHY, and while he is trying to learn about the world around him... sometimes it just sends me into laughter with no answer proving to quinch his thirst for such knowledge.

Bubba is our middle son... and middle son is he ever, and a solid 3 years old in every way! Enough said :-)

Snookie, he is my little guy. At two years old he will probably be potty trained, reading, spelling... everything before Andrew.

So these are my boys. I will have to write more later... the amigos are calling for my attention!
