I am finally a mommy!

I am finally a mommy!!! We got the call for our agency and it has been a whirlwind ever since! It is exhausting but so rewarding! I can now look back over the past year with adoption and see that THIS is the child that God had planned for us! Abby Elizabeth was born on April 27 and joined our family Monday June 22!

I must admit that I am worried about the effects of lack of sleep on my fibromyalgia. Last night we got 6 hours of sleep (from 4am to 10am) which are not exactly my hours but I will take it over the night before! When I’m not getting sleep my hips and lower back KILL me so I am really hoping that I can fend off a flare. John & I have been tag-teaming so that has been helpful (he took first shift last night so I could get an hour or two of sleep before I took over). If posts are scattered the next week or so, please understand but I think this will had a whole new dimension to my “new normal” 🙂

I love hearing from you!

  1. Congratulations!! She is so beautiful!!

    "There are two lasting bequests we can give our children. One is roots. The other is wings."

    I'm sure you will give her beautiful wings to fly!

  2. Hello! Just stopping over from where you visited my blog recently.

    I hope you enjoy all the happiness she brings your way and a better than normal life as a new Mommie.

    Many Blessings and Prayers for you and your family!
