We have a big family!
Our daughter Lillian is 10 years old now. Ever since she was 3 years old she has been drawing pictures and talking about having a sibling one day. Although we weren’t able to grow our family on our own, as soon as we told her we were starting the process of adoption she was onboard. She talks about it a lot at dinner time or bedtime. She dreams about what we will do together as a family when the new baby arrives. She has younger cousins and loves to read to them and play with them when they visit us. Lillian has had lots of practice helping care for her 4 younger cousins. They are all under the age of 5.
Lillian has older cousins on Todd’s side of the family and she has younger cousins on Ashley’s side of the family. Ashley’s family lives closer so majority of the holidays will be spent with Lillian’s younger cousins. Like we did this last Christmas, we were able to visit and open Christmas presents together. We do like to travel to visit Todd's family when we can. This summer, all the kids were able to get together in our backyard with our blow up pool. They were loud and there were so many laughs while they were splashing in the pool and playing with the water balloons. If you can imagine kids laughing uncontrollably and dancing in a blow up pool, then you can imagine our summer afternoon.
They all love her and she loves them.
Have a great day, we are thinking of you.
Todd and Ashley
