I should have posted this yesterday but since Brady and I were on our way back to Virginia from Tampa I didn't have time to post. Yesterday, April 1, was 6 months to the day that Brady became part of our family!!

It's hard to believe that we've been a family of 3 for 6 months already and at the same time I feel like we've been with Brady the entire 14 months of his life. For those of you that have met him you know just what a GREAT little boy he is. I mean I've never been around ANYONE that smiles and laughs as much as he does (well, okay, maybe Donny Coffman!!). He really is just a sweet boy who likes to have fun. I can't imagine not having him in our life. As I was thinking about all of this last night on the flight home while Brady was asleep on my chest, I couldn't help but think about Brady's birth parents. I think it's a very unselfish and courageous act to give a child up for adoption and I just can't imagine how they came to that decision. For them to realize that they didn't have the means to give him everything that he deserves and entrust him to someone else is truly brave. I'd like to think that Alan and I are doing a good job of being parents and I hope that Brady's birth parents would be proud. I know that many people tell us how lucky Brady is to have us, but really we're the lucky ones who were given the opportunity to raise a child and love a child. It doesn't get any better than today when I was taking Brady upstairs for his nap and he proceeded to give me about 4 kisses...I mean real kissess, actually looking for my lips so he could kiss me....TOTAL happiness!!! As Oprah said, "Biology is the least of what makes someone a mother". We love you Brady!!! : )
