On Our Way Again

Good New Year’s afternoon from somewhere on 231! We are in route to Birmingham for EB’s second eye surgery. So far it’s been a gray, rainy drive, and Jeremy has us listening to ESPN radio. Boring. The good news though, is that we are stopping at The Summit so I can do a little shopping! … Continue reading

EB and Mae

We are finally in Birmingham and attempting to get ready for bed, but a certain little girl doesn’t seem very tired. She’s actually quite enjoying exploring our hotel room. Her favorite feature is the full length mirror in the bathroom; she’s very impressed with herself. :) Before I tell you about EB’s surgery, I want … Continue reading


I know I promised an update about EB’s surgery from Jeremy before Monday, but that pretty much didn’t happen. Maybe I’ll try to do that on the drive to Birmingham tomorrow. I am writing tonight however, about another little girl. Our sweet friend Mabry, or Mae as she is most often called, will be having … Continue reading

Happenings in the Adoption World

Hello all! I have several things that I have been meaning to share for a while now (isn’t that always the case with me?) and I will try to make this brief as possible. First, in case you haven’t seen on Facebook or even the news, Alison and Stephen have started a nonprofit called Forever … Continue reading

Last Day

I am sad to report that today is my last day at home with EB. I will be returning to KSE bright and early tomorrow morning and I dread leaving my little girl. I have so enjoyed the last few months that I’ve been able to spend with EB. And being home with Jeremy has … Continue reading

Birmingham Bound

Good morning! I am coming to you from the car this morning (don’t you love technology?) as Jeremy, EB and I drive to Birmingham for her first eye appointment. We will be seeing Dr. Jennifer Scruggs, not to be confused with our ophthalmologist in Dothan, Dr. Joseph Sugg. :) She is one of the doctors … Continue reading

One More Thing

I told myself I wasn’t going to post anything else or share any articles/posts on Facebook about Miley Cyrus. Yet here I am writing about her on my blog. I don’t want to contribute anymore to her popularity and ever-growing media attention, because even negative publicity is publicity.  Nonetheless, I have a couple of things … Continue reading

Adjustment Part 1

As always, I had good intentions of posting an adjustment update way before today. But I have quickly learned that having a baby doesn’t leave as much time for extras (reading, internet, TV, etc). And in the free time I do have, I am usually too tired to sit down and write. Let me say that … Continue reading

Home Sweet Home

Home Sweet Home

45 hours from Guangzhou to Dothan. Almost two full days with basically no sleep. During that time period, EB probably slept 6 hours and Jeremy, mama and I much less than that. Sleep deprivation and jet lag are two of the main reasons I haven’t posted before today. I had no idea how bad jet lag … Continue reading
