    This coming Saturday, I'll be going to get Adam!!! :D
    He's currently living in a group home 2 and a half hours away, just on the other side of the state line...but this weekend he'll be OURS!
    I'm so excited. I'm sure already we'll love him and love having him. I never imagined I'd be a mom of 6, but I'm so glad I am.
    Just had to share! I'm sure there will be more to come as it gets closer and he finally settles in with us.

    He's 3, almost 4. Another little one, but hopefully a great playmate for my older boys!

    How exciting for all of you! :)

    I have to say, as a mom of 3 who I feel like run me completely ragged - I don't know how moms with many do it, and I'm constantly in awe of those who are ready to open their hearts and homes to more :D

    Don't be in awe! Sometimes I feel like my oldest is raising the littler ones. It's not easy, but honestly worth it (most of the time). :D

    Thank you all! I leave first thing tomorrow...Tonight is going through the ins and outs with my husband. This is the first time I've left him with everyone since Ella and Caleb were little!
    I feel so lucky to have been able to add 3 beautiful children to our life through adoption in the last 3 and a half years.

    HI. this is Ella. My mom left her computer open. My new brother Adam is really cute. He's shy, and I just read him a book and gave him a hug. I'm supposed to go to bed now. Bye.

    we appreciate the thoughts Susan! This week has been crazy with getting everyone situated and getting to know each other, but also very fun and loving. The boys are bonding well, Ella is in major-big-sister-mode and Linnea is just wondering why there is another kid around lol. He's shy, and quiet and a little hesitant, but he's taken well to Isacc and I and Caleb has taken him under his wing. We're so thrilled to have him! We're having a little trouble figuring out the food allergies, and his asthma is completely out of control, but we'll get there.

    Sleep? what's that? :p Yes and no. Ella is very good about watching the younger kids for a bit if I need her to, and Isaac takes the evening shift most nights while I listen to a book on tape and do the dinner dishes kid-free...but there are so many jobs around here that only mommy can do! Nights are a crazy story when they all need us at once! This week he's been checking Ella's BG, makes sure Nick is asleep (and calms him down if he isn't), checks on Adam's breathing while I nurse the baby and get up to help him if I have to.
