That is a very beautiful family photo-and yes, he is ADORABLE!Thank you for sharing your journey...I've wanted to post a comment for a while but was a lil nervous. I've never been a mom and not likely to be a human mom so I didn't feel like my words would be very "comforting" even though they would have been written with that intention (plus it isn't like you "know me"). The feeling I get from your blog is that you are a wonderful person doing the very best you can (and that you have a fab husband!). Such an amazing journey you are on even when it might not seem so amazing (which I know from your writings that you know that! :O) and I feel blessed to follow along.Anyhow...Have a very wonderful Christmas. Here's to 2012 being just as blessed as 2011.
