Reality Check

One of my blogger friends, Julie, just posted this on post-adoption depression. While I don't think Brian and I are fully "here", Julie honestly and boldly expresses a lot of what we've experienced these past 3 weeks since becoming Judah and Addise's parents.

If you want to understand adoption and love us well into this next stage of parenting, PLEASE READ THIS POST. It's quite an emotional conundrum to love two little beings implicitly while also struggle with new realities. [Perhaps I'll post more on this in the future?]

On another note, both our kiddos are teething, fighting low-grade fevers, beginning immunizations on Thursday, and starting treatment for parasites. Prayers and support are appreciated...
