the day after

Thursday, August 25, 2011



The attorney said that this is the most people he's ever had at an adoption. The judge said he only sees this many people in the courtroom when it's a jury trial. Pretty cool. I have never been more proud to be a part of the families that we're a part of. It's a large part of the reason why we have been 'successful' in attaching, caring for, and becoming a forever family for Brenden and Niah.

This morning when we woke up, things were different. I can't explain it, but the children were different. I know it's not my attitude because I was just really tired and not too happy when we got up. However, Brenden was happy. He woke up with a smile on his face, said, "Mama, I love you", and he's been pretty joyful ever since. Stuff that would have set him two days ago has been fine. He's compliant, happy, playful. It's strange. Time will tell if this will stick around, but I am honestly surprised by this reaction. I did not expect it at all.

The rest of the children are just tired. So am I, but there's a party to get ready for still. No time to sit around right now...
