An Update

Alright, I am not even going to look at this blog to see how long ago I posted (but I’m sure it’s been a LONG while – OK I peeked – it’s been like three months – YIKES)! Lots of stuff have been going on around here and I have been busy with two kids on my heels.  I’ve been spending most of my on-line time over at my book blog, now reviewing books sent to me by various publishers and authors. For a bibliophile like myself, it’s a dream!

It will be a year next month that we traveled to China to get Maya – a year filled with wonder, happiness and amazement.  My oldest has just about finished Kindergarten and has also learned to read. Maya is a running, jumping, somersaulting twenty month old who is now starting to say more that just Bye Bye and DaDa. It’s also been a time of worry and heartache as my Mother is still very ill.

I’ll be keeping this blog up for a while longer, but feel that having an “adoption” blog is kind of obsolete at this point, so one day good ole F&C will be deleted. In the meantime, let me show you what we will be doing for most of the summer…

Thanks for following along on our journey to becoming a family of four. Have a wonderful, happy and safe summer. Peace.
