Tell Us A Story......
Hi, I am Tricia. Today I am the Featured Designer at MyMemories. I am a wife, a mother of 3 (who happen to be 20, 18, and 2 1/2. Our 2 1/2 will be legally ours next month, you guessed it, adopting. Yay, I am so excited.) I have been scrapbooking for about 10 years now and have recently, about a year ago, have started digital scrapbooking. I LOVE LOVE LOVE designing new things. I have been creating paper piecing patterns that I sell on my website for about 4 1/2 years now. I am now taking my creations and designing digital kits to go with them. Scrapbooking is such a fun way to preserve yesteryears memories.
One of my more recent, precious memories is when our little guy came into our life. I have felt the desire to adopt ever since my girls were young. I would always tell my husband I would like to adopt some day. Unfortunately we never thought it would really be possible with the cost of adoption and all. But still the desire never disappeared.
My husband is a minister and there was a couple in our current church who just brought home their grandson. They were named guardians because the mom could not take care of her child. The grandparents knew they were not going to be able to care for him as they would have like to have and they wanted to be grandparents. So they decided they were going to put him up for adoption. When I held this precious little guy the first time I knew I was going to be his mom. We talked to the grandparents, my husband and I prayed about it and when this little guy was 5 months old he came home to live with us.
It has been two years now and we are still loving every moment of it. And let me tell you, he is definitely a typical little boy. Right now as I am typing he is standing in the kitchen stripping his pajamas off. There is never a dull moment with this little guy around. But he is truly one of our biggest blessings.
