Just One More?


Something about babies clothing and shoes makes me lust for a new baby. For a moment I explore the thought of just one more. Please notice that I wrote 'for a moment?' I really am one that can clearly see my limits, and my need for balance and I feel very satisfied (also thrilled, grateful, and over-the-moon) with the family that Billy and I have made with Annie, our family and dear friends.
Just this week our friend Alison has grown her family for the second time through open adoption! Baby Isobel was lovingly placed in her arms by her birthmother Moriah who is also the birthmother of Olivia who is almost five. Alison and I both were dreaming about open adoption around the same time so we share a strong connection around this special way of growing our families. These booties are for Isobel who I will see tomorrow for the first time. She will be six days old tomorrow.

Happy Birthday Isobel!

What a warm tribute to a dear friend. The booties are beyond cute!!! The potential of a new sweet baby would make anyone lust for more, I know.

Cute booties!!!
Yep, those little booties...
I know what you mean about just "one more".
As for the "keys", if it is meant to be, it will be.
I'll keep my fingers crossed for you.
