I just want to share a thought with you, my little one(s) and with you, my readers...
But first, some of the wonderful things that people have had to say to us since we were placed with our first little guy via Foster Care.
"I'm so happy for you guys!!! Mazel tov!!!"
"Oh my gosh! Oh my gosh! Oh my gosh! I don't think a Facebook comment can express how frickin' happy I am for you and Henry and Baby Z. Sending you 1000 hugs. Hooray!!!!!!!!!!"
"Are you referring to Henry or your first Foster Child?"
"What's that new fragrance you're wearing? Regurgitated formula? It's exhausting, messy, and sometimes stressful, but always beautiful."
"Just wanted to say that I work with Special Ed preschoolers, and I see the difference that their Foster Parents make in their lives. So, I thank you and Henry both for being Foster Parents!"
"Welcome to the club! Life, as you know it, will never be the same. I am sooo happy for you both and even happier for Z...he is a lucky little dude! And by the way Joel, The Stroller Does Make You Look Gay! :-) xoxo! Your blog is very entertaining...you guys need your own reality show. I think there is an opening on TLC(Kate just got axed)."
Now, Back to my thought...
I've spent a great deal of time with this blog talking about how, one day, I would "Make My Family." My thought as I was driving home today with a box full of lovely baby things that a friend has given us to make use of was this...I have already begun "Making My Family." The love that has poured out of people for Henry and I during these last few days feels very "Family" to me.
Thank you Everyone for all of your well-wishes and advice. Thanks for being so supportive. Thanks for all of the extra resources you're sending our way in whatever form. And most of all, thank you being "there," whether five miles away, five hundred, or five thousand miles away...you've made our house very "full."
Thanks for reading.
