Seven years ago I was a normal mom.
I had one kid.
My husband and I took him to do normal kid things.
I loved that kid a ridiculous amount.
I still love that kid a ridiculous amount.
I got married the summer after I graduated from high school.
14 years later I am still married.
One first child is now 13 years old.
He has been an older foster brother to 12 kids.
Now he is the oldest of 8 children.
As anyone can imagine, adopting 6 kids can flip anyone's life upside down.
I would be lying if I said I never missed the 'easy' days, the ones spent with just this kid.
I wouldn't trade my current life for anything.
But I would pay a lot of money to go back in time for just one day and be 'normal' again.
