I have reflected again and again about what to write today. For those who may be visiting the first time for ICLW, welcome to a happy spot in blogland. My hubby and I just adopted our first child, and he really is a dream come true. He is so sweet and so cute.
And if that wasn't enough, he even sleeps during the night--only waking up to eat. I have quickly found that is the number one question I am asked. Are you sleeping? Is he sleeping? And I can see why, because even though he only wakes up to eat and then goes back to bed, I have never felt so sleep deprived in my life. I can't imagine how it would be if I was recovering from a delivery, breast feeding, and he wasn't sleeping. I have a whole new appreciation for the obsession that moms have about talking about their kids sleep patterns.
But enough about that. I have much more to write about than sleep. As you all know, the title of my blog is: Find Joy Now. And the joy that our little guy has brought into my life is unbelievable. And as the blurb on the side of my blog says, I plan on writing about the joyful things in my life. I am sure we will pursue adoption again in the future. And who knows, if I ever overcome my fear of stirrups, maybe I would face the hormonal and emotional nightmare of infertility treatments. And I guess there is always the chance that now that I am so relaxed and have adopted, I should anticipate announcing my upcoming pregnancy any day now. j/k.
I like how my hubby said it, "who knew 20 inches could change your life so much". So, anyhow, I guess what I am saying, is that this is my new life. And I love it. And I plan on blogging about it and the other things going on in my life. I hope many of you will stay and enjoy the journey with me.
