6 Months Home

Happy 6 months home AJ!

He's a little guy with a BIG personality!!!

It's been a great six months having AJ home with us. This has been a much easier transition than Ryan and I had anticipated. AJ is just happy. I think back to the first moment I saw him in person. He was so shy and nervous that day. He was the last child to get dressed, and he had on a sweet little Winnie the Pooh outfit.

This was our introduction. The first time he called me, Mama. I was instantly reminded of Winnie the Pooh saying, “As soon as I saw you, I knew an adventure was going to happen.” It has been a grand adventure, and to think this adventure is just getting started. I love this little boy so much! He is no longer shy. AJ is full of life! He is outgoing, loud, expressive, and funny. Ryan, Brody, and AJ have made my days precious and sweet. I thank God everyday for this beautiful life He has given me.
