A Disney-sized Hiccup.

This is our son Mighty.   He’s a typical almost 4-year-old boy.  He loves all things transportation and adores building things.  He’s pretty good at it too.  He’s also really smart.  For example, yesterday at the Lego Store in Downtown Disney, he couldn’t reach the Lego table, so he told his sister to get out…

Right into our Hearts.

Yesterday was National Adoption Day.  On National Adoption Day last year, we welcomed a tiny, somewhat blue baby into our home.  A baby whose prognosis was unknown.  A baby whose diagnosis eventually became something of our worst nightmares.  My kids loved her absolutely fearlessly though, because that’s what they do.  She had already been in…

God Bless the USA.

FullPlateDad and I have been Facetiming morning and night so he can tell me about the day’s adventures.  The days following the medical exam were low key. Mighty’s TB test was negative.  WOOHOO!!!  That was really the only thing that could have thrown a wrench in the adoption works. Smooth sailing from here. FPD and…

Mighty’s Medical

Mighty and FullPlateDad are settled into the hotel in Guangzhou after some amusing airport antics that you can view on Instagram (check out our link below).  Apparently, when you fit in the luggage cart’s carry-on shelf, you can go for one heck of a ride.  Mighty enjoyed it.  From where her mama sits in America,…
