It was Christmas of 2018 when Cory and I began our journey towards adoption. I can’t believe it’s been two years already. We have learned so much about adoption and what it means to be adopted since then. It’s been such a journey to get here and our love for our future child has continued to overflow. It’s times like Christmas where I think of Santa coming and us baking cookies ahead of time. I think about going to mass, spending time with our families, and all of the love that our whole family has to give.
Until that wonderful day when our trio, Louis, Cory, and I, becomes a quartet, Cory and I spend Christmas morning building lego sets together. It’s a wonderful tradition where we snuggle up together by the fire and make something together.
I can’t wait to continue this tradition, but with duplo blocks instead of lego bricks.
Elise and Cory
