We met our third child Alihan. Our journey started out strangely enough with not planning to have a third child--at least for quite awhile. I moderate an AdoptCleft group and I get pictures and information about cleft-affected children available for referral. So, while scrolling through some info. that had been sent to me--and talking to my mom on the phone ( I multi-task), up popped this picture of Alihan, now known as Chewie. I gasped and sent the picture to my mom. I knew, I just knew. I called Ted, emailed him the picture and told him we were adopting again. Thus started the process. While rough--rougher then the previous 2, I wouldn't change a thing. Our house is loud, crazy, messy--filled with laughter and joys (and a few cries and yelling done by the brothers and sister!) This is what family is meant to be.
