I’ve gone a litte quiet of late and I’ve been missing the blog!

You see, I’m a new (single) Mommy of a bouncing baby 3 year old; adopted from the state foster care system. I was aiming for 8 or 9 but apparently, God plopped her down on my path for a reason!

Oh! And I’m a first time mother. Nuff’ Said?

Two years of being immersed in this journey coupled with a great deal of self care and introspection is what freed my heart to move forward.

And I my friends, am in over my head and over the moon.

I’ve never felt my heart beat like this. I’ve never cried watching the Polar Express until watching it with her last night.

If any of you know what a 3 year old is like, let me explain mine.

Remember the Tasmanian Devil cartoon? Remember the girl Taz with the pretty red lips that spun in circles at 96 MPH?  Well, mix her with some innocence and curiosity and whole lot of spontaneous hugging and that’s my daughter!

I just dropped her off at her foster family (we are slowly moving her in with me) and I’m so tired I can hardly see the screen or find my mouse.

Up next: My adventures taking her to see Santa yesterday!……………………now, where’s my wine…
