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

Button Pictures!!!

So we met our son this morning! We'll post pictures now and do a full recap later on. Too, too excited right now to put words down. As you can see, he started off a little sedate, but that didn't last too long. A lot of times I felt like a wildlife photographer. As you can see, once he catches sight of the camera, the jig is up! But he eventually tired himself out, and fell asleep in R's arms right before leaving for the day. More later.

How wonderful!! Great news!!! Such a beautiful little fellow. A huge day for him, can understand why he fell asleep. My friends are staying at the same hotel as you!

Now I was sure you visited him or he visited you for a few days before you officially take him into your care. What's the process now? You have your board meeting on Wednesday???

Take care and have fun with him!!!

Omg, I'm crying! He is in your arms! He is beautiful! I love the last picture. Okay, I love every picture. The 2nd one is so cute with that little grin. How cute is he???? Was up in the middle of the night and couldn't sleep and Sharon saw me on FB and let me know you posted. I could hardly get to your blog fast enough with excitement! Wishing you love and big hugs from Philadelphia! Can't wait to hear and see more.
Love

He is absolutely adorable. We got to see him, just as we were getting on tour bus, Brian and him were out by the pool. He is even cuter in person. Congratulations! I have to admit I am very jealous!

Button is just as handsome as can be! I showed Tea the pictures and his response was, "Is that Tea??" When I told him no, he was utterly confused. Funny, I thought they looked alike also. =)
