I'm back

Yes. I'm finally posting again.
My life is not interesting enough to blog everyday. In fact not even every month! It's the end of November already. November is special to me because I am so thankful for my children. We heard about the possibility of adopting our son (Ryan) in November. He was born in January so it was a wonderful 2 month time for us preparing for his birth.
My daughter, (Lindsey) had her 17th birthday this month. I can't believe how fast time has flown since our two kids came into our lives. Our son came into our lives after 13 years of marraige when we adopted him. We had suffered 2 tubal pregnancies and 2 miscarriages before an angel from heaven presented him to us. She was an unmarried high school student that was seeing my doctor and opted for adoption. Thank God! I do mean I suffered too! It was agonizing to remain childless for all those years. And when we found out I was pregnant we were elated, only to lose the pregnancy a few short weeks later.
When our son was 7 years old and the thought of a baby had long been forgotten, I got the idea that I just might be pregnant. Well I waited another month before taking a home pregnancy test and even when it was positive I didn't believe it. The blood serum pregnancy test at the hospital confirmed it, but it took me a long time to finally believe that I might actually give birth to a baby. Well to save a lot of typing, she was 6 lbs. 6 oz. and now she's 17 years old! We've been married for 38 years now! My how time flies!
Now it's almost Christmas and I need to make-sew-quilt 4 gifts for quilting friends, 5 gifts for co-workers, and 1 baby shower gift. I better get busy. I'll let you know next time how I'm progressing.
