Daddy practice

Dear Sam,

Last night your Dad and I got some practice at parenting, when we babysat for Lincoln, the 6-week-old son of our friends Jon and Kristin. Your Daddy held, fed, and burped him. I did the diaper change. He was such a good little baby, slept most of the time and only cried and fussed a little. I hope you're so easy!

You also got a present yesterday, from our good friends Jenny, Jon, Grace and Nathan. Aren't those the cutest shoes? (They're Squirrel brand, which I suspect are really nice kids' shoes.) The card said, "Dear Sammy, Here's a little something to help you make your first steps easier. We can't wait to meet you!" We are so lucky to have the Shemwells in our life, even though they went and moved to California right before you joined our family. We miss them a lot.

Heidi, I haven't been to your adoption blog in forever and well . . . it's bringing tears to my eyes. Your husband looks like he'll be a wonderful new daddy and I know you'll be the best Mom in town. Though we just met I am so very excited for you and your family and can't wait to meet dear Sam. :)

I was looking through your two brothers and I were adopted through LSSM (Lutheran Social Services of Michigan)...and I wouldn't trade my parents for anything! Just reading your blog gave me chills ...very good ones! I've never come across anyone else who is working with Lutheran Social Services. Enjoyed it a lot!
