Last week Devin, Maysa and I were sitting on the couch and Maysa was standing up on the couch as usual (she has no fear!) While she was standing the couch she lost her footing and fell backwards off the arm and landed straight on her face hitting ceramic tile. We rushed to the medical clinic and thankfully were able to come home after visiting the Dr. She has a concussion, two black eyes, a huge raised bump on her forehead, cut nose and she is swollen everywhere on her face. She has to follow up with her regular pediatrician and a nose specialist to make sure her nose heals as it should, but right now there is to much swelling to determine the damage. Maysa has been such a trooper and tough girl. She has to be watched so carefully to make sure she doesn't bump her forehead again. I think I have slowly recovered from my panic attack/heart attack since last week LOL>I'm so thankful it wasn't any worse!
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!
