It's Time...

... to wrap things up on this blog.  I have definitely done far more journaling about our adoption journey on here than I ever would have done in a traditional paper journal.  I have really enjoyed hearing from so many friends who followed this blog and rejoiced with us as Anna Kathryn joined our family.  

But, it's time to move on.  She is 13 months old today.  We have been home for 9 weeks already. I returned to work on Monday, and she started going to daycare.  We are both having to adjust to our new routines.   I think we are both missing our cozy, relaxed days together.  I know I look at the clock at school about 64 times a day and wonder what she is doing and how she is doing at her school.  We are truly settled into our new normal, and while the journey to Anna Kathryn is over, the journey with her is just beginning.

For those who don't already know,  I have another blog I started several months before we got our referral to adopt Anna Kathryn.  If you'd like the web address to follow that blog, just e-mail me at  If I don't know you in real life, please just add a line or two sharing a little about how you found my blog.  Thanks!

Finally, one month ago we celebrated Anna Kathryn's first birthday! Since I operate my life on the premise of "better late than never," I have finally selected some of my favorite pictures out of the 150 or so my sister and I took the day of her birthday party.  Enjoy!!
