firsts we’ve celebrated

We weren’t living together for first steps or first words.  So far, the firsts we have celebrated with little sister and big brother include…

  • first time learning what full feels like
  • first time drinking bubble tea
  • first time playing hot potato
  • first time spraying whipped cream by yourself
  • first time learning what marriage is, why people wear wedding rings, and what an anniversary is
  • first time hearing “Mary Did You Know?“, “Away In a Manager”, and the story of Jesus’ birthday
  • first time wrapping a present
  • first time getting a shirt off by yourself
  • first time having a hot fudge sundae from McDonald’s.  We were in the drive thru…

Me: Ou!  Do you know what McDonald’s has?

Little sister/Big brother: What?!

Me:  Hot fudge sundaes.

Big brother:  No thank you.

Me:  Seriously?  It’s ice cream with chocolate.

Big brother:  No thank you.

Little sister:  I’ll try it.

I ordered 2. (one for myself and one for the kids to share)  Guess who asked for more after dinner…

Marcy is an adoptive mom of a sibling pair. Adoption was her Plan A. While remote schooling her children during the pandemic, Marcy felt compassion for the remaining 120,000 U.S. children who are waiting in foster care to be adopted. Wanting to share that foster care adoption is the most affordable way to adopt with a financial cost of $0-$2,500, she wrote a book and started a podcast both called "The Forgotten Adoption Option" to find more forever families.
