4 pretty purplexing comments:

  1. Very interesting story. Thank you for sharing it... whatever happened to the birth dad? Have a super fun weekend!! xo

  2. Thats so cool, I like the list of much I blocked from my mind not a good delivery one of many reasons why I have an only child! Have a great weekend!

  3. What a cool post and what a great man/father Todd is for adopting Ahren. I never saw my birth dad until I was 21. He wanted me to call him dad at that point. My reply was, "Your not my dad, you have never been there for anything in my life!" So, I have huge respect for dads like Todd because I had a dad that adopted me too and treated me like his birth daughter. Sounds like we had a similar pregnacy, except for the pickles. I may do this on my blog, but include both boys. Have a good weekend

  4. That was a great post. What a brave girl you were, so young and responsible. And smart to choose a wonderful husband!
    Good job Tami!
