  1. I think I was so caught off guard and I really don't know her very well. I think asking about how what they say might effect Mitchell is a good way of putting it into perspective. Maybe makes me sound a little less female dogy. I don't always correct either but I really felt the need this time.
  2. Yesterday we were at a gathering with some of Philip's extended family and I was very surprised when Philip's cousin said "Mitchell looks so much like you, it is hard to tell that he is not your real son." I quickly stated that he IS my REAL son. After 5 years why is this so hard for some people. I know that it is harder to tell that Mitchell is not biologically related to us than in other blended families. I don't think Mitchell heard or it nor would he understand it yet but someday he will and it might bother him. It made me think of Pinocchio.... look its a "real boy". Anyway, it did bug me especially from someone who should know better and in front of other people we didn't really know.
  3. I try to remind myself of that everyday even when facing other struggles. I am so thankful and blessed!
  4. Congrats to the newest family of 3. Prayers to you and all involved.
  5. Mari, Your are always so full of wise and kind words. Thankful to have you on the forum.
  6. Congrats! What a beautiful family!
  7. Congrats! What a beautiful story!
  8. Congrats! Sounds like a wonderful start to a beautiful family!
  9. Prayers for his family. He was a very nice person. I remember meeting him at our orientation. I know he was a part of the Abrazo family for many years and will be missed. Thinking of you all too.
  10. Welcome to the world baby Dylan. May you continue to grow stronger everyday.
  11. I saw a preview for a movie last night where a older woman is searching for a child she had placed as a young woman. She didn't know where he was or what he looked like or if he was happy....nothing. That to me would be agonizing. I thought about our relationship with Andrea and how she will never have to ask those questions. She is coming to Mitchell's 4th birthday party and going to stay in our home. She is family and Mitchell loves her. It makes me incredible happy that we chose open adoption.
