The ugly, the difficult, the frustrating, the lonely.
And most people want to hear about our wonderful experience or (in their view) how we "saved" a child from an orphanage. Most people want to hear the good news. And most people hear it.
But we aren't heros.
We are just two tired people, trying to get through the days.
Yet, the past two afternoons, as our kids played happily together, as Joseph giggled and branched out even more and Abigail didn't burst into sobs and accuse us of playing favorites where she was the losing party, we were 2 very happy parents.
It is all going to be great.
But it is going to be a hell of a long summer.

|Part of our challenges this week is that|
the little guy is sick AND had a reaction to
his MMR vaccine he got last week.
He just couldn't get comfortable last night.
(5 hours of sleep for him, 3 for Larry as a result)
