Last night I reconnected with my blog and I am so glad I did. So many memories and emotions came flooding back. Some post containing videos that I posted a few years ago, I couldn't watch. Heart breaking then and more so now. So what going on with Jordan. My little man is now 6 years old. He is 50 inches tall and weights 52 pounds. He looks tall for his age. He is full of energy, intelligent, and funny. He is really funny, he loves to make others laugh, which gets him in a little trouble at school. He's also extremely protective of me. He is aware that he is adopted and I'm his second mom. We talk about it as often and as much as he wants. I would have to say, that it's more challenging for me, than it appears to be for him. It's not an easy subject for me. Some of the questions he ask include: Did sissy come from your stomach? Why didn't I come out of your tummy? Is my first mommy in heaven? Did she know me? Are you my step mom? Tell me about Ethiopia again? When did you go to Ethiopia to get me? He loves hearing about the first day we saw him. He loves looking at his baby pictures. He hasn't grasped that daddy is his second daddy yet. I am some what nervous about that. If I could do it over again, I would have gradually integrated it into our adoption and Ethiopia conversations sooner. I intend to post at least once a month. I plan use this blog to record things I want Jordan to know later when he is older. So some of my topics may focus more on Ethiopian culture than adoption. Since I only have 8 followers now, I doubt if anyone will notice.
My husband and I are in the process of adopting our first child from Ethiopia. My husband is an awesome man, whom I love with all my heart. We’ve been married for almost two years. God has directed us to adopt from Ethiopia.
