I never would have thought two weeks ago that my entire life was going to change so drastically. I mean, really. This time two weeks ago, I was heading into my usual “I hate Father’s day weekend” funk, and just trying to focus on Alissa’s birthday. I never would have imagined that in the past two weeks, Alissa would have spent a few evenings with her dad (including 2 hours just the two of them), she would get an amazing birthday, and we’d be getting ready to meet the rest of her family – two aunts, two uncles and four cousins in another few weeks.

I am still beside myself with glee.

Dale told his family about Alissa the other afternoon, and contrary what we expected their reaction to be, they are SO excited to hear about a new family member. In fact, his brother emailed me today and welcomed us to “the crazy family,” sending photos of their three kids and telling me all about them. It was SO awesome. Never in a million years would I have imagined this experience to be so amazingly positive and beautiful.

I am still not sure all of this is real, but man, I feel SO blessed.
