I have been a slacker lately when it comes to the blog. Not because I don't want to blog or I'm just too lazy (well sometimes I am!), but...honestly I just have very limited time on the computer now and my internet is just not the fastest in the world. I have plans to try to change that very soon!!
I have been giving thought to changing this blog from an adoption blog to a family blog. (Although it would be an adoptive family blog). I've also wondered if we should just have 2 seperate blogs. My lazy but common sense mind just says to change this one into a family blog, mainly because our focus is on our entire family and that seems to be where the posts have been heading anyway. We did not really know what a blog was before we embarked on this adoption, and it got us started in the blogging world (which I love), and now it seems like this blog should be about the whole family.
But..... this whole blogging thing started because of the girls, and it seems like we should continue to record their progress as they grow and learn and develop and not add other family members and events into the mix. Hmmm....
Should we just focus on the girls and their continued journey in this "new world", or should we include everyone and continue to blog as a family of biological and adopted, typical and special needs, under and over achieving, disobedient and wild, but sweet and loving and compassionate children?? Leave a comment and let me know what ya'll think!

For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.
