Greetings!

We designed this site in order to keep in touch with friends and family who are far away and in order to communicate with other adoptive families from around the world.

When we first started researching this wonderful way to become a family we read everything we could get our hands on. Even though there are a lot of great books out there, nothing was as informative or touching as the blogs we found by adoptees, biological parents, and adoptive families. So we are writing this blog now in hopes of returning the favor. We hope that if you are dear to us you will enjoy keeping up with our adventures. If you are someone out there involved in a part of the adoption triad we hope you will find information and comfort here and provide us with some of your own!

If you would like to get in touch with us we can be reached at: becomingafamily@gmail.com
Feel free to stop by anytime. We're happy to share our family story.

Take care,
Brian and Rosemary

Hello 2010!

There is a very beautiful myth that Mother Nature and Father Time gather the stars together every winter solstice (Dec. 21) and create a special and unique Baby New Year. Then they protect and love that baby until it can go out on it's own and be exactly what it is supposed to be. Now obviously, the Baby New Year grows quickly, since he is capable of independence by January 1st but all the same I still love that little story.


I know that I am a bit late with the New Year tidings but we hit the ground running once we came home from our holiday. All the same, I am thrilled to be enmeshed in 2010 and I hope you are too. No matter what happens this is the year that we will bring our son home! We will meet Button in 2010. Does anything else really matter? I feel so wonderfully happy to greet this year with all the love and enthusiasm in my heart.

Welcome, Baby New Year, we know you are going to do a great job!
--Rosemary
