holding out

hi all- well i have , again, spanned many weeks with no updates or blog entries. I have been super stressed with grad school and work, and trying to stay healthy ( as in not having a total mental breakdown), be a good mom and wife...its hard- this semester has really gotten me bogged down with so much to do. However as of April 23rd I will be done! Not only done with grad school for this semester but possibly done with teaching for the year as well. Sam's surgery will be much more complicated than we once expected. His left foot has other issues going on, the recovery will be strict- 3 weeks with no weight on it...another 3 in a cast/ little movement....I am having issues with his pre-school situation not even maintaining his needs being in casts, so theres little faith in them to make sure the recovery goes well. So i am taking off to help him recover and be there for him- i wont have school or work...just me and Sam time. I am both looking forward to it and dreading it all at once. We are expecteding the surgery to be on or around April 26th
On a lighter notw- Sam's 4th birthday is coming up- on Easter....we are going to Universal Studios on April 19-21- WIZARDING WORLD OF HARRY POTTER, HARDROCK RESORT, SUPERMAN, SEUSS-LANDING!!! I love this place....i am so excited to take all the boys there and hopefully meet up with some friends and family.
On an even different note- i am having WC fever again...and have been looking through waiting child lists nearly daily. I really want Sam to have a family member that looks like him...and i am whole heartedly passionate about waiting child adoption/ older child adoption. Of course John is not sold....i am not even sure i can deal with all the red tape and frusrtation of all the paperwork BUT i think if we could be matched with a sibling group it would be easier just knowing they had each other, and if they are older- then knowing they understood a family was coming.....i can dream, can't i?

  1. I love that you are patrolling the WC lists! I wholeheartedly support it and see firsthand how important having a person in teh family who looks like you is to these kids. Our son notices skin color ALL the time everywhere we go. Best of luck with the surgery.
