I am first and foremost me, but right after that, I am a mother. The best thing that I can ever be, is me. But the best gift that I will ever have, is being a mother.”
-C. JoyBell C.
I would add “wife” to the best gift that I will ever have too. 😉 And speaking of my boys, it won’t be long til our baby is heading back to school. He starts on the 8th of August and then celebrates another birthday in November. Hard to believe he’ll seven soon!

Summer vacation has given us a lot of time to bond, and the five of us stuck pretty close to home most of the time, but I’m sure Steevenson will fall in love with school again once he’s comfortable with his new teacher and classmates. He said, “they will like me?” when we were talking about them recently and I’ve never felt more like a mom. Weird how your heart can break and swell at the same time, isn’t it? Whew! I love him so much.
We visited my mom in Florida this past weekend and I did a Q&A on Instagram on the way there. The most frequently asked question was “would you adopt again?”. Short answer: Yes! Adoption rocks and although we don’t have plans to start another adoption adventure right now, we are absolutely open to the possibility of growing our family through adoption in the future.
Right now, we’re still enjoying/exploring life together as a son, mama and daddy AND as a grandson, daughter-in-law, son-in-law, grandme´/mother-in-law and grandpe´/father-in-law…but who knows? Maybe we’ll reconfigure some rooms and bring another Palmer person in at some point! 🙂
In the meantime, my heart is full and my arms are empty, so I’m off to snuggle my Sonny til we both fall asleep. Nighty night, friends!
