Adoption Blog: The Perfect Blend

The Perfect Blend

the perfect blend

It's been almost three months—seriously, three months?—since we brought our son, Dylan, home from Korea, and if it's seemed to you that I've been writing on my blog on AdoptiveFamiliesCircle less than usual, rest assured that I feel like I'm just coming up for air. We've had impossible-to-maintain highs, had way too many sleepless nights, and gave Dylan a whirlwind introductory tour of New York State.

We've also had a lot of those beautiful ordinary moments. You know, like swinging at the park, playing with bath toys, and having all three of our kids happily playing at the piano (as you can see pictured here).

We're not waiting anymore, as the blog's former title, The Waiting Room,implied. We're living. It's a messy, hectic, putting-out-fires-every-other-minute sort of life, with all three kids under the age of 5. But it's also kind of perfect—for us, anyway—and so it's time to change the name of this blog. I'm no longer in The Waiting Room. Now, our life is The Perfect Blend.
