Yesterday was my 41st birthday and what a difference a year makes.
Last year, my life was fairly easy. This year, it's hard.
Last year, I had 3 kids. This year, I have 5.
Last year, it had been years since I'd cared for a baby. This year, I have one.
Last year, I had never parented a girl. This year, I'm parenting 2 girls.
Last year, we had just decided to adopt. This year, it just might happen.
Last year, I had no idea what foster care was like. This year, I know all too well.
We took pictures of me and each of my babies. Here's the ones I can show.
Yesterday was pretty much a normal day: school, soccer, everyone going in different directions. But today, thanks to my friend Donna, I get a date with my husband! We're going to dinner and refrigerator shopping!
