A few weeks ago, I returned to work after two blissfully busy months as a stay-at-home mommy. I'm thankful for the full-time work and benefits, but it's nearly impossible to say goodbye to Miles every day.
The attention we receive as a transracial family is nothing compared to the attention Miles gets for being such a handsome, good-natured baby.
Leading up to my first day back in an office, away from Miles, I was overcome with mixed emotions and had long crying jags.
We always knew adopting would make us happy...but we didn't know HOW happy.
I am still seeking work, but now I have a new title while doing so: "Stay-at-home Mom" to my newly adopted son Miles. This is a title I've wanted for years and feel especially blessed to be here now.
The Jewish word “verklempt” means overwhelmed with emotion, and I think we really gave new meaning to the term that day. I was so touched that people had driven up to three hours to come see us.
