As you may have already discovered, I'm the proud <adoptive> mother to my sweet little Finley. I know, she looks just like us. What you may not know is that we are in a very open-adoption with her Birth Family and super close with her incredible Birthmother Lex, whom we endearingly call "Leelee." I've written all about how our adoption came about in previous posts, should you find yourself curious there's quite a few that will answer some of the more adoptive-mom related questions.
When we got married, my maid of honor concluded her toast with, "Now let's raise our glass and cheers to love laughter and happily ever after." While I thought our life would surely be that of a fairy tale, I was wrong. In our first few years of marriage; my husband survived a horrific brown recluse spider bite, my father was tragically killed, and devastatingly we received the news of infertility.
Last week I had the pleasure of chatting with Jamie on her Podcast, The Happy Hour. I'm still getting used to doing interviews, they always make me so nervous! I never want to say the wrong thing... but I'm human, it's a certainty at some point that i will say the wrong thing. I was super comfortable chatting with Jamie, it definitely felt like we had known each other for years! She's a published Christian Author, which is intimidating! BUT she's also a wife, mother, and fellow adoptive mama and she made the interview really fun. She was cracking me up!
