I have a little girl!

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

I haven't been on here for a while. There have been a lot of reasons for that. I've had some major health issues, we've moved, and most importantly....drumroll. We have a little girl!


No, I still haven't succeeded in getting pregnant, and that's been put off for a while, but an adoption literally fell into our laps over the summer. We had to be *very* careful what we told people and put online for a while, because adopting as a lesbian couple in a Southern state is, well, complicated, but it's all been final for a while now.


My daughter is wonderful. She's the best thing that's ever happened to me.


We're also fostering her big sister. So, we've gone from not having any kids to having two in the span of a few months. The sister only arrived recently, so we're still adjusting.

I have thought about also you over the months. I'm so glad to hear your news! That's wonderful! Two little girls. Amazing! I hope your health issues are improving and you are enjoying your new home.

Thanks everyone. My health issues are improving now; I had surgery about two weeks ago, but I came pretty close to dying before they figured out what the problem was and how to solve it. I should be okay from here on out.


It's been a challenging few months. My wife got laid off not two weeks after we closed on the house we worked so hard to get. Two weeks after that I ended up in the hospital for the first time. I had to take time off from work on and off until the surgery. Then we had our second unexpected arrival...you get the drift.


I'm feeling very thankful for all my blessings this holiday season. I'm alive, I have a wonderful wife, two beautiful girls, and a roof over our heads. That's all that matters.


My little one has 4(!) teeth now. I'll try to figure out how to post a picture. (Of her, not the teeth.)

This picture is a couple of months old, but here she is. She has four teeth now and is doing her very, very best to crawl.

She doesn't have red hair anymore. It changed to deep blonde a couple of weeks ago. Just poof! Her eyebrows are starting to darken now. Her eyes are still bright blue, however, and I expect them to stay that way. :)
