A New Beginning

I have kept a blog for a little over two years now that detailed our adoption of our son Michael and our time home with him. ( My last post there was on December 31, 2009. I started thinking about it and decided it was time to start a new blog with a new direction. This blog will not only be about Michael and our adoption. It will include more about our daily lives, including our family, our friends, our thoughts, etc. It will be a way for everyone near and far to keep up with us.

When creating this blog, I was faced with giving it a title. I threw a few ideas around and ended up with the title "Roots, Branches, and Wings." The three following quotes sum the title up:

"Our family is like the branches of a tree.We may grow in different directions, yet our roots remain as one. Each of us will always be a part of the other."

“Good parents give their children Roots and Wings. Roots to know where home is, Wings to fly away and exercise what's been taught them.”

"Family gives you roots, friends give you wings."

I hope to keep the blog updated more than our last. The posts may be short at times. They may include a picture, a quote, or just random thoughts. Hopefully, you will enjoy this small glimpse into our lives.


  1. Great title for your blog!
