Welcome Home

If you've spent any time at all reading any of the adoption blogs out there, you've probably seen the complications that arise. Those of us who adopted internationally might encounter travel delays, embassy problems, or mysterious court requirements. Posts by adult adoptees and first mothers and adoptive parents alike show the ways the losses involved in adoption resonate throughout all our lives.

Sometimes, though, I just want to push all of life's complications aside and smile: Erin and her daughter Azucen@ are coming home together, from Guatemala, where Erin has been living for almost 2 years, weathering various twists and turns. Erin has been writing about all this and more at Jesus Was Not a Republican.

Welcome home: enjoy this next phase of adjusting to each other. I bet there will be more good stories to follow.
