I hear this statement, “I couldn’t do it, I’d get too attached,” OFTEN. Wish I had a dollar (or ten) for every time I have heard that. It could fund my retail therapy at Target, Carters, and Amazon!

Our lives forever changed, yet again, just about 24 days ago when we welcomed a 4 lb 5oz bundle of joy & sweetness to our family and into our home. We are back to a family of 5! If you read my last blog (Our 3rd Call.), the phone call for this baby girl came […]Read More We Are A Family of 5 AGAIN!

I have vowed to be completely honest with you readers on this blog because, […]Read More 8 Months To Forever
