The end of the journey the beginning of LIFE!!!

It's been some time since I sat down and blogged about life with Roman and Maxim but that's not to say that we haven't had anything to share ... we've just been living as a family and enjoying each and every experience as a family of four.

I've also been trying to decide if I should continue blogging or if it was time to say goodbye to the blog... I'm still not entirely sure ... after all I started this blog almost 3 years ago when we began thinking about adoption as a way to keep family and friends posted on our journey to parenthood and now that journey is over and we are enjoying the journey of life with two very active and loving boys!!!

The journey we have taken to become parents was not an easy one but in the end we made it through and fulfilled the dream we both had of being a Mom and Dad and some nights when I watch my boys outside together playing I find it hard to remember life before they invaded every inch of our being!!! What a ride it was just to get to this point and to be honest every day since we've become a family has continued to be a hell of a ride!

My favorite quote along the way hangs just to the left of my computer in my office at work ... at times it kept me going and other times it brought me solace for the difficulties we were experiencing "The journey only looks long from the beginning. When we look back up the path, the reality is, we can be happy we started or we can wish we had." When I look at my boys, hear their laughter or their many request at night to sing "pleasant dreams" ... I know .. KNOW this journey was worth it in every way we experienced it!!!

Our journey to having a family is complete but the journey of life together continues and I think I will post occasional updates of the boys and what life brings our way!!
