Happy Blogiversary to me!

I hadn't realized until just a few weeks ago that today is the anniversary of my first post here on Faith, Hope & Poop? I can't believe it has been a year already...

Travel back in time with me for a moment...

One year ago-I was very nervous about doing this & hadn't even told anyone that I was blogging. I typed several posts before I felt confident enough to let "real life" people read it & even then it was only a small handful. I was not at all nervous about "strangers" reading it just people I knew. I hadn't typed anything terrible about anyone, but just wasn't sure how my writing style would come across-if I came across idiotic, I just didn't want people I knew to know it :) but lucky for me they liked it & so my train of blog thoughts continues...

One year later-I am much more confident about this "blogging stuff" & love knowing that both people I know & don't know are reading it.

One year ago-I thought maybe this blog would be more of an outlet for my thoughts on adoption related things.

One year later-It has been a little about that, but more so about my life & its happenings in general with a little of the adoption stuff tossed in occasionally.

One year ago-We were still adjusting to the idea of actually having a child in our house, loving him, watching him grow & learning with him as he grew.

And as for the biggest news...
One year later-We are still doing all of those same things, but we are now adjusting to the idea of possibly having 2 children (hopefully) very, very soon if all goes according to plan. That's right, we've been working on adoption #2 (due to arrive in early June!) Keep birthmom & the baby in your prayers & your fingers crossed for us :)

Thanks for joining my on my blogging adventures over this past year!
