Nothing to Hide

This blog went off line for a while because there are some bad people snooping around trying to say my adoption was illegal.  Can you believe this?  Well I have nothing to hide and want to continue to share the wonderful news about my family with everyone.  I will not let some two bit journalist prevent me from telling my story.

So for my readers who have wondered where I was, I am back.  Much has happened as you can see from the preceding husband was promoted to partner, we had a visit from my niece Katie.  We joined a new country club, and Ryan is learning tennis now.  I am also taking tennis lessons and will be taking up golf as well.  Life is good...and there are people out there who are jealous of this and want to try to destroy this.  Don't let anyone scare you away from your dream of adopting.  Hopscotch is a wonderful and ethical agency that will do you good and do good for the children.

God Bless.

Katie's Visit -- Precious Moments

Kevin is a Partner

I know this really doesn't have much to do with the kids or the adoption, but I had to share the wonderful news that my husband, Kevin, is now a Senior VP at Booz Allen Hamilton. Internally, the term is "partner," although now that the firm is public, the term is not as accurate. But he does own a larger share of the company than he did before :).

Last week we attended the official party to celebrate this great accomplishment, which everyone keeps telling me is a "big deal." I guess it is, but Kevin is still the same guy I met way back in RI...a very humble, generous, and funny guy that I feel so fortunate to be married to. There will be photos to share soon, but these were taken in our front yard prior to our departure to the venue, which was a rooftop restaurant in Arlington. It really was a fun time, and I can't wait to share all the photos.
