Our new (not so little) bundle of joy

You may wonder why there's suddenly a burst of parenting related posts on the blog or why Shira and I are more sleep deprived than usual or why we're pushing a stroller next time you see us. Simple: we have a new placement in our home, a wonderful 8 month old baby boy. As is normal in the foster care world, we're not sure how long he'll be with us. Due to privacy reasons, I can't post his photo. So instead, I'll post a photo of the extra parts that remained after assembling his crib:

I'm sure those aren't important. Right?

Even with having him in our home for only a few days I'm reminded that children are such a miracle. And you know what is also a miracle? Amazon same day delivery. Seriously, we live in an amazing time when you can remark to yourself at Sunday at 1:00am: we really need a tiny fridge in the boy's room so I don't have to trek up and down the stairs to get his bottle. And then Sunday evening, one shows up at your door (and it works well, by the way!).

There are always a lot of unknowns with foster care. But one thing's for sure: this is an adventure.

    You guys are amazing!

  2. Thanks for the kind words!

  3. So admire you both for all you do for the foster world and the littles that have benefited from your care and love. 💗

  4. I think you're good with the extra parts (especially given one is actually a tool), but I'd be happy to take a look at the crib if it hasn't fallen apart by next week :-)

  5. Thanks Jody and Nick!

    Yeah, surely those aren't load bearing dowels...
