Growing My Family

I flew to Maryland this past weekend to meet my boyfriend’s parents. We flew out Saturday morning and came home Sunday night.

This crazy introduction to people who might one day be part of my family got me thinking of all the crazy and unexpected ways we grow our families. I had my two children in a more traditional sense (in that I was married and they were planned) but I already sense that my family is not done. I’m not going to be having more children of my own but my family just keeps changing anyway.

And I can’t wait!

Families don’t need to be grown traditionally, but that doesn’t mean they are any less special. It doesn’t mean there is any less love shared (or any less irritating habits).

We are all on our own journey through motherhood and through life.

I’m so happy to maybe someday expand my family in ways I never imagined.

To all the Mamas who are taking a different route, you are incredible! To all the Mamas who have opened your arms and grown your family in your own way… you are such a valuable person. Thank you for being part of our community.

All my love,
