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:
Feel free to stop by anytime. We're happy to share our family story.

Take care,
Brian and Rosemary

Shopping fun

Guess what I found? Well, fine then, don't guess but at least look!

This cute little book just flew off the shelf at me and, of course, I had to have it for our Button. It's completely adorable! All the buttons are on brightly colored ribbons and toddlers can pop them in and out of the page's cute counting themed pictures. I'm thinking it will be a fun way to start learning his 1-10 in english.

We have this! And the Tongginator loved it. One word of advice, though... don't let him turn the pages when the buttons are in the slots. Because then the ribbons get tangled (VERY TANGLED). So start out teaching him to pop them in, then take them out, THEN turn the page. :)

What a cute book!! It's perfect!

I did a little research yesterday. The US Embassy Office is open both Thursdays in December. The day after the board meetings... so Holt said as long as they were open (for the VISA), "people" could travel. I am with you - I refuse to believe we won't go in December!
