I've finally jumped onto the blogging bandwagon. I feel like there should be a party or something. At least a couple of hats and noise makers! You see, I've been wanting to blog for a long time now. I haven't because I knew I wouldn't be able to share pictures of our children, at least until Anthony's adoption was finalized. As of January, the adoption was finalized. Hey, it only took me until March to get the ball rolling here. I know there are thousands out there that have been dieing to hear what I have to say. Well, maybe one or two.
Ironically, I don't really know what I want to say. I know I used to enjoy writing, sharing my life with others. I hope to do that here. I also hope to share my family and our crazy adventures.
So, here's a brief introduction. I'm Angie. I'm married to Patrick. We are about to celebrate six years together. We met while attending seminary together. I dated his best friend, he dated mine, the rest is history. (The friends were in our wedding.) I'm quickly approaching my 34th birthday. Patrick is four years younger than me, I robbed the cradle.
We have five children. In December of 2005 we experienced a miscarriage at 11 weeks. We named our daughter Hannah Grace. In August of 2006 our son, Colin Michael, was stillborn at 32 weeks. In November of 2007, we miscarried at ten weeks and named our daughter Airen Lee.
Our oldest is Aiden John, he just turned three. He's the red head. He loves swimming, reading, chalkboards, his Daddy, and the entire PBS Kids lineup. He looks forward to going to church and is a very social child. He is so smart it scares me and can tell his left from his right already. I can't imagine what God has in store for him!
Our youngest is Anthony Joseph, he is about to turn two. He's the blond and I get numerous comments on how much he looks like me. Anthony came to us through a miracle of God and the miracle of adoption. He is mischievous, mechanically inclined, and a charmer. He loves any food you set in front of him, but cannot live without his Cheerios. He loves his Mommy, but refuses to say my name. He loves Elmo and Cookie Monster, although we're not sure if it's the monster or the cookie that is appealing to him. He is also a very social little one that loves spending time at church with his friends. God has something special planned for him!
It is my greatest joy to prepare these two young boys for manhood. God has given me amazing blessings through my children and my husband. Here's the family!
