I have not been around for awhile but I wanted to reintroduce myself and be more active on the boards.
We brought our oldest son home in November 2008 through domestic infant adoption. It turned into a contested battle for almost a year. We finalized three days before he turned 1. Two month into that adventure we also found out I was two months pregnant with twins. Surprise! So I have three boys that are 8.5 months apart. Two years later we had our little girl. We currently still have court ordered visits with the birth parents of our oldest and it has definitely taught me patience.

I think their might be room in our hearts and home to do another adoption but I am unsure at this point. I just feel like its something we are supposed to do. I guess time will tell.

Good to be back on the forums!

Oh what a story!!)))) I thought pregnancies after or during adoptions are miracles. And now I'm hearing two almost similar stories in a row :) I'm very happy for your BIG family! Good luck in everything!

Glad to see you back here! I can't imagine having three little ones so close together, but it's got to be entertaining, at the least??? LOL

I know your time is surely limited, but keep in touch with us as you can!

Sincerely,

Linny

Life is interesting. It actually feels weird right now. I have had babies for so long and now my daughter is almost 18 months. I'm getting to the point where I don't need baby stuff any more. My three boys are all getting ready for school in August. I will be at home with just one kid for a few hours. I'm not going to know what to do with myself.
