The joys of a son
It has not been easy adding this new man to the house. His sister has had fits of jealousy and everyone has had to adapt to the dynamics of being a family of four, as oppossed to a peaceful family of three. As I fold his laundry and smile over his little boys socks and shorts, I can't help but think how incredibly fortunate I am that life has blessed me with a son. When I began my adoption journey, I thought I would have one child. Then we decided that Sally would be better off not being an only child since we are middle aged. So we went on our journey again and decided to adopt another little girl from China. As fate would have it, we ended up with a boy. What an amazingly happy turn of events! I am crazy about him, and even big sis could not resist his charms for long.
