The time has come for me to move on. I feel like the title of this journal is no longer appropriate for the issues that I am facing as a new Mom to a toddler. We have indeed "gotten there" and returned with the precious gift that is our son, Ivan.
He makes me laugh every day with his antics, and he's been known to make me so frustrated I could spit nails. However, that has nothing to do with our journey to adopt Ivan, which is what this journal was about. So, I have decided to move to a new journal.
J and I are still uncertain about going back for another child some day. We may, and if we do, I hope to journal it in this space.
