Aw Shucks, Mom.

In response to my mom's comment, and the many other people that have mentioned their surprise to my emotional blog... I know I am not very candid with my emotions. (Is that an understatement?) I wanted our friends and family to experience this journey from our point of view. I want everyone to understand that life moves on, and while we are sad for what we have lost, we are hopeful for what is to come. There have been times when people have expressed their sadness when we made our big announcement. I know they only did that because it is the first time I have opened myself up, and allowed them to acknowledge our babies we lost. It is not really possible to acknowledge the adoption without also acknowledging what led us to this point. So, I created a blog, because I want people to experience this part with us. I want to share my excitement with all of you, so you can in turn celebrate it with us. Without the blog, the conversations would inevitably end with my dry ridiculous humor. Don't worry, I am not turning into some serious, deep, thoughtful person who throws around terms like "our journey" and quotes people.
I'm still here. And I still laugh to myself, picturing Corey searching for the punch line at the end of the post.

Without our boys, we wouldn't have Lily. Without Lily, our lives wouldn't be complete. We won't ever get over it, but it's something that we can move forward from.

You are on your way to a even more beautifulfamily. If the anticipation is killing me, I can't imagine what it's doing for you!

I think this is a great way for you to not only share this part of your life with family and friends, but also to work through the emotions that you all are inevitably going through during the process. Some things are much easier expressed in writing than out loud.

Hoping you get your good news in 2009!

Marcie, I love that you have this blog. Sarcasm and humor are great, but it nice to read about your "journey" (oh I said it). When you talk about Livi you change your tone a bit...you can tell how proud you are of her and how much you love her, so why would this be any different? When you talk about your kids, how can you not be emotional? This has been a long, dare I say journey, for you guys and it will be even more exciting when you have your new little one home.

I can't wait for the baby to come home!!!!!
