Life will never be the same...

On Easter morning, April 12th, 2009, we welcomed a son into our family, and life will never be the same. My husband and I have always wanted children, but after 12 years of trying and waiting and being told it would never happen, I am thrilled to say that God is faithful to His promises!! For those of you wondering how you missed me being pregnant, well I wasn't. We adopted. I'll be honest, there was a time when I didn't think adoption was for me. But the Lord showed me that He is the one Who puts families together -- no matter how those families come together. I love that adoption is a symbol of what God does for each one of us -- takes someone like me who wasn't in His family and says, "You're my daughter! Welcome home."

So now, life is very different! We were there when Jonathan was born, so we've known him from the first second of his life. I'm so happy that the Lord worked it out that way, because we didn't have to miss anything. But having a newborn in the house definitely changes things. I'm still trying to find the balance -- trying to find a minute to do anything besides making bottles, changing diapers, and holding my sweet little guy to calm him down or get him to sleep -- but I wouldn't trade it for the world. I know this phase of his life will zip by so quickly, and I want to savor every minute of it.

So I know there are so many parents out there -- what's your story? Leave me a comment about your little bundles of joy. God bless you.
