Well, it went fantastic. Sam's Mom made an awesome breakfast, Ava behaved, presents exchanged. I had a great time.

Sam telling Mike about the pictures he got for Christmas. I loved seeing them together. I think she's very lucky to have both her birthparents in her life. Also, Sam's beautiful sister Alex. We love her!

They look so much alike. Mike loved her laugh, which is something I always comment on as well. It's so contagious and she uses it often!

Samantha's Birthfather is coming from CA to visit her this weekend.

It's been about 4 1/2 years since I have seen him. We communicate, rarely, through text and facebook, but I have not seen him face to face since my adoption was still new and fresh in my mind.

Things are so different now. I'm happily married, I have a child and Samantha is just a normal part of my life now. One I love. :)

It will be...interesting. I'm looking forward to it!

Once Upon A Time

As usual I was having a hard time deciding what to get Samantha and her older sister for Christmas. Reading birthmothers4adoption I learned about Once Upon A Time, an adoption story. I had to have it! It came in the mail yesterday and I just love it. I would suggest it to any one who loves adoption. Find it HERE!

the end.

National Adoption Month is over. I didn't quite complete the 30 posts in 30 days challenge, but I posted a lot more than I usually would have, and I got to read a lot of great posts from others. I love all the new blogs I have discovered through comments and other adoption blogs.

Thanks for a great month!
