{New Day, New Dawn}


In this house around 5:30 or 6:00 in the morning the most beautiful thing happens -- a new day begins.  Again, God just simply knew what we humans needed to make it through this crazy thing called life.  Every morning we have another chance at life and this cycle continues as long as we are still breathing here on earth.  So amazing. 


Monday brought along with it the worst day I've experienced since starting this chapter on our life.  It  was just so difficult.  Jayden was pushing every button in my mommie heart and mind -- I just couldn't win.  His hearing and vision seemed to just not want to cooperate with either one of us.  It just was a plain old rotten day.  Add to this that we realized early Monday morning that we lost his glasses -- double trouble, making my day even worse. Thankfully a friend told me about this site, where I purchases three new pair.


Adoption is amazing but it is also one of the biggest challenges Adam and I have ever faced.  The best tool we choose to use is the ability to start fresh everyday.  It works.  We let go of yesterdays drama and challenges and hope the next day bring progression and happiness.  Thank God for fresh starts.


Anyway -- Angela is currently going through belly boot camp. About six months ago we purchased Angela her ChildRite seat.  It was one of the best investments we have ever made for her.  But we started to rely on it a bit too much and Angela started to develop a nice hunch back -- so we put the chair away and back to her belly she went.


She does great, and because of her new found strength she seems to be able to tolerate longer periods on her belly without doing face plants and getting frustrated.  We expect to see another increase and strength after all this belly workout time, which will not only make me happy but will make Angela very happy as she will able to do more things and be more active -- which is what she longs for!

Again -- a new day, a new dawn.  Can I get an Amen?

Amen. I understand completely about starting over with my adopted children. We have very different issues than you do but starting over fresh each and every day and sometimes several times during each day is vital. You are such a great mommy. :)
