If you are expecting this site to show a person whose house is spotless, with homemade meals and desert made from scratch on the table every night, the laundry always caught up, my kid always acting perfect and handmade gifts given for every holiday, then you’ve landed on the wrong site.

If you are NOT like the person mentioned above and you want to come hang out with someone who isn’t a Supermom either, then you’ve come to the right place.

Quote: “I realized at the start that whether a child..."

“I realized at the start that whether a child is biological or adopted, one does not know all the ingredients in the package. That is what growth is all about. A child is the slowest flower in the world, opening petal by petal, revealing the developing personality within.” 
~Robert Klose

What a beautiful quote. Yes, children are slow to mature, but how wonderful that slow journey is. Actually, I don't think it's that slow of a journey. No truer statement has been made than the, "The days are long, but the years are short".

It is amazing to watch that little person's personality develop. Sometimes you sit back in awe of the person they are becoming and are so proud. And sometimes you sit up, take notice and fear what they may turn into!

They are ever changing. They want to keep solid routines, doing the same thing at the same time over and over again, all the while they are constantly changing both inside and out.

Everyday we witness a miracle. Everyday we get to view this delicate flower opening petal by petal. And we are so much the richer for it.
