A Bigger Family

Our family has a new member.  We just adopted a healthy infant boy from China.  So there will be a lot of changes and adjustments over the next few months.

We didn't plan on adopting this late in life.  We applied to adopt in November 2006 and expected a referral in 2007. However because of the slowdown for healthy adoptions, we waited almost seven years for the referral. (In comparison, the referral for our first adoption occurred seven months after we applied.)  We are every bit as excited as we would have been seven years ago.

I've always been a late bloomer: sports, school and career.   I guess it shouldn't be any different with raising kids.
