Tired and Loving IT!!!!

Today our little family went to Walmart. Hats off to my sister- sister-in-laws and all of my friends that have kidlets. What once use to take us a couple of minutes with one cart has now turned into two carts. One for our little squeaker and one for all the groceries and all the items on our list.
Once there was a time that I slept and received 8 hours straight. Now I am l lucky if throughout a 24 hour period I get 8 hours.
Our lives have changed. They will never be the same. I look at our little guy, I cry and think how precious each life is of a child. How each child, comes to us is simply a miracle.
I won't ever complain of the lack of sleep, for forgetting that I have fixed toast when 2 hours later I see it in the toaster.
No way - this is what I dreamt of and hope I will cherish forever.
May we simply cherish.

Baby Grayson

An adoption mentor who is near and dear to my heart once said, "You don't choose adoption...adoption chooses you."
Adoption choose us...and choose us fast to say the least. We had 48 hours notice that our little boy Grayson was coming into the world and we had to go and pick him up and bring him home.
It was an experience that was dear and near to my heart. Experience that I will never forget and will forever me imprinted on my heart.
I will share this...we love his birth-mom, she is beautiful, strong and courageous...we love his family...we shared four days with his family and fell in love with them. We hope and wish that they will forever remain in our lives.
Grayson - he is beautiful. Everyone stopped us where ever we went and commented on his hair. He has tons and tons of hair. He had his first bath and his hair went to the curls. He has such a sweet spirit and our home has felt peace even in our tiny little hotel room there was a great reverence for what a child can bring and the simplicity of life and of love.
We feel very honored to be his parents. We feel very honored to have had him chosen to be placed in our care and feel a huge responsibility to make sure that he is provided with everything that he needs.
In is with deep rememberance and heartfelt memories...that we will share with our Little Grayson about his little Angel sister Livi - that made it possible for his mom to live....she knew that the future did have in store for me to be a MOM.
I will always be a angel Mom and now I am the mom to Grayson.
Our hearts our full...our nights our short...but we have expanded joy after a deep impact of a life changing event both from my accident and also from this adoption experience.
Grayson Isaac Frazier - Born Aug. 20th - Weighed 7 and 1/2 pounds and 19 1/2 inches long.
May we all recognize the "Amazing Grace" that fills our lives and hearts. May we also see the tender mercies and the miracles that happen.
