Discovering Motherhood: A new blog

I have been writing about my children since Liam, now 15, was born. Interestingly, I didn't write about Jacob, now 18, when he was a baby. I don't think I realized at the time that he wouldn't always be a baby. Sure, other people had toddlers, kindergarteners, college students. But those days were impossibly far off for me. Baby Jacob would be a baby for a long, long time, I thought. By the time Liam was born, when Jacob was three, I had caught on. Time moves; these children were growing, and I had thoughts, ideas and reflections about the whole process. I thought it best to write these down. In the years following Liam,  our daughters Teenasia and Jamie joined our family through foster care, then adoption.

 This blog is the story of our family.
