Christmas is just around the corner and I have so much to get done, but just don't feel like doing it at all! I use to have all my shopping done and wrapped by the first weekend in December, along with lots of baking and decorating the house...I didn't even put lights on the house this year! Going from one to three kids in a year has been a big change in my life. I'm so thankful to have my children home but can admit I'm emotionally and physically exhausted! Well... at least we have the tree up and it's beautiful!
After several years of infertility issues and unsuccessful pregnancy’s, I had my IVF miracle baby Devin, who is now twelve. Since I was a little girl I always had the desire to have lots of children, but things are not always as we plan them. Devin’s father and I split up when Devin was 3 years old and I wanted to have more children, but medically wouldn’t be able to. Adoption was a way that I could give a child a loving and nurturing home and family. My adoption journey began in September of 2005. After several disappointments and a lost referral I switched countries in 2007 from Panama to Guatemala. After what was the most emotional, exhausting and uncertain journey I have ever been on in my life, my family is now complete. Danilo arrived into our family on March 27th, 2008 and Maysa arrived into our family on September 5, 2008. Looking back I could have never made it though this journey of infertility and adoption without the support of other bloggers. My children are my life and I’m so thankful that we are all together as one family!
