A staff member and her daughter read a lovely story called "Born From the Heart," which included a recipe for how to become parents.
I personally would increase the measurement of patience in the recipe above, having waited more than 2 years for the arrival of our bundle of joy. But when it comes to adoption, there really couldn't be a truer meaning to the expression "good things come to those who wait."
There were many oohs and aahs by the staff over how much Joseph has grown, so I looked back at the very first picture we ever took of him, the day we met him at Barker. Then here we are 6 years later, and he has changed so much! Oddly, my shirt has not......
And since we're taking a trip down memory lane, he's the picture that started it all, in the very 1st post to our blog, when we became the Alton Boys!
