I am just now getting around to writing up some of the posts I have been meaning to write for a while. So unfortunately some of the next few posts will be terribly outdated but I figured I might as well finish what I started!
One of the things I worried about, when I was still pregnant, was how would our family unit handle this new person. We are a complex family as we are. We are not simply a family of four. We are (were) parents with two kids but who are also co-raising three other kids. We love them as our own and the kids are essentially siblings. They are together every single day and consider each other brothers and sisters. So how was a new person going to do in our "mix"???
On the second or third day home I remember this moment striking me. We had all six kids in the house and it was peaceful. Truly, wonderfully peaceful. It felt as if all that I had worried about had been in vain.
There was computers
And I pads
And I Pods
(Man do we have a lot of electronics around here ;D)
And "school work"
