a good read!

i don't know if you've heard of adoptive families magazine before, but i definitely enjoy reading their articles. anyways, yesterday i stumbled across an article on their website that is particularly about adopting a toddler. it's a great article and i thought i would share it in case anyone else is in a similar situation: go here to check it out.

honestly, i didn't really do much research into adopting a toddler specifically prior to our adoption but now that our little man's home i'm finding this info very helpful. toddlers are in a unique stage of life so i know i can use all the help i can get!!

that's all for now :) hope you're enjoying a beautiful day like we are here in the bluegrass state!!

Thanks for the article, because we have just began our adoption journey. We are adopting a special needs child from Eastern Europe.

Our adoption story is a little different from yours, but still the same in the important ways! And how is your little guy? I hope he is adjusting well and you guys are happy. I bet it must be challenging adjusting to life with a toddler and being pregnant at the same time. When you have a baby, you have over one year to adjust to being a mother before you hit those challenging toddler years. I hope you are feeling well with your pregnancy. How blessed you are!
