Then while were were on holiday we received an email with a profile and a photo and the question - would we consider this little boy ? I showed the photo to Big Boy and he said, "Is that me as a baby ?" I said. "No, it's a little boy who we're thinking about having to come live with us. How would it be if he was your baby brother ?" Big Boy looked at me and smiled. "Yes, I'd like that."
A lot happened in between - which I will tell you another time, I promise - and now we are here. We're a family of four (ok, Neo - five) and this Christmas he's here with us. It's the most amazing gift of all and I cannot believe it's only been a year since this all began for real.
So, when anyone asks me what I want for Christmas I can honestly say, "nothing."
|Oh we're such fun|
I have a wonderful husband, a lovely home, a fluffy cat, a new iPhone (ok, not strictly nothing then).
|I told you he's fluffy !|
Most importantly of all I have two sons I love and adore. They are safe, healthy and happy.
Ok, I'd like to be slimmer, to not have dodgy knees and a gammy shoulder. I'd love to be able to live on chips, chocolate, champagne and strawberries.
For now I'm thankful for what I do have. I had no idea this time last year that it would be so much.
