Too long.

It cracks me up that I feel like I have nothing to say when there is soooo much to say.  So much.

We are still a family of nine, even though that was never really a question, but some days it feels like we are lucky to finish another day as a family unit.

I have SO many kids!

They are such hard work!

But I don't know what I would do without them.

Every day it is something.  This one puked, that one peed, this one lied, that one emptied a whole roll of toilet paper into the toilet....

It is funny what you are capable of when you have no option of quitting.

We are close to two years into this adoption and I still find myself wondering, "Is that a sign she has RAD?"  "Is he doing that because he has RAD?"

I still worry about that scary diagnosis.  None of my kids have been diagnosed with anything.  Even the one that came to me with ADHD has since been undiagnosed.  I long for the day that I don't worry about what the future holds.

All I can say is that things ARE getting better, getting easier...we are becoming a family.  It is a lot of work though.
