So, today is a special day for me... It's the day I gave birth do by daughter and placed for adoption. She turns 13 today, my how time has gone by. I'm so proud of the young woman she has become and very proud of the decision I made to place her with such wonderful parents. They are amazing and I love them as well. It's crazy she is as old as she is, I remember being 13 and being so happy to be a teenager. I really hope she has a wonderful day today with her family.

My son also celebrated his 12th birthday on April 18th. He received the Aronic Priesthood and was able to pass the sacrament as well. I'm amazed at the young man he is becoming. I'm told he is so willing to serve others and is preparing for his mission by doing what he can and learning a lot from his parents. I'm so grateful for him being in my life even if it was just a few short months then when he was born, two short days.

I placed these two with the same parents so siblings wouldn't be apart. Like I have said before, I'm so grateful for the blessing of bringing these two special children to earth for their parents who otherwise couldn't have children. I'm also proud of the woman I have become today thanks to all the many trials I've been blessed with.

Happy Birthday Kennedy and Kaden (April 18th), I love you.

Simple, yet touching

Tuesday's Ramblings

I've discovered I'm not too exciting these past few days. There's really not much going on with us. We've been hanging out with more of our friends these past few weeks and it's been so much fun to be with them. I feel we have some great friends.

Hannah and Jaidyn are excelling in their own ways. Hannah has had a growth spurt and a lot of her pants are too short, maybe I can fold them to make capri's or something. Good thing it's almost summer so we don't need to get more pants until later. She's been trying Jaidyn's school, UPSTART, and loves it. She's doing a really good job and tested higher than what her age group should be.
Jaidyn is also growing. He's all boy and loves playing in the dirt with his dirt trucks and such. He's also gone through a growth spurt and is turning into a little man. He's also liking UPSTART, but we've discovered he has a hard time sitting for the 15 minutes it requires. He also tested above grade level and is really smart.
We are so proud of Hannah and Jaidyn and the children they are becoming. I'm truly grateful to be their mother since they teach me so much every day.
