Photo Hunters will be posting pictures of beautiful things. So much room for interpretation with the theme! Can't wait to see all the diverse choices.

Here's mine.

Photo Hunters - Wrinkled

Tough one for me this week as the Photo Hunters were looking for something wrinkled. Looked through and settled on this photo.

Here's my brother hanging up his clean laundry to dry when he was in stationed in Iraq a few summers ago. He said no amount of ironing got all the wrinkles out of his clothes.

August 6th

August 6th...

One year ago today, our "paper pregnancy" came to its end, when we walked into an orphanage in Ethiopia and a nanny put our daughter LemLem into Pastormac's arms.

That day forever changed our lives.

Adoption experts say that it can take up to a year for life in the adoptive family to settle down to the "new normal." The addition of Bear last February has made this process take longer for our family.

One year has past and I can say, with feeling, that August 6th 2007 ROCKED MY WORLD.

Now that I can breath again, albeit shallowly at times, I'd like to share some of the things that I've learned and experienced over the last year. I've learned a lot about adoption and perhaps more importantly about myself.

So come back soon. I hope to have my first installment up next week.
