I am now back to work and what an adjustment that has been! However, Ben is doing great at daycare and I am slowly starting to get into a groove. The last three months at home have been heaven. It’s been amazing getting to know our sweet son. He is changing daily, learning and growing faster than I can keep up with. This journey has been challenging and a testament to my faith. There have been hurdles as a wife and mother I didn’t know I would face. There have been moments where I’ve wanted to break down and cry out of pure joy. It’s everything I had hoped it would be and yet motherhood has felt foreign at times. This time I’m on a roller coaster that is so thrilling I don’t want it to end. With every milestone Ben reaches I’m cheering him on and yet my heart hurts at how fast he is growing. I want to keep him small and safe with mama and at the same time I want to see him flourish on his own.
I can’t wait to continue writing about our adoption challenges and how crazy it was to go from childless to mother in a three day time period. I feel like I can finally come up for air!
I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas! Count your blessings as all good things come from Him!
