When I was in fifth grade my little sister Sierra was born. I was not very happy when my parents told us my mom was pregnant. I may or may not have had a tantrum in the middle of Arby's. I was scared of not being "the baby" anymore. After she was born though everything changed. She is what made me realize I wanted to be a mom. Our mother was very ill for a long time after she was born and I took an active role in raising her. I remember when she was a baby trying to comfort her when my parents would fight. My mother still lets me participate in important conversations with her like about bullying and stuff.

Okay I guess that's enough pictures now haha. As far as what Josh and I want for our family in the future, we'll take what we can get. Originally I wanted an even number of kids, two or four. Josh vetoed four pretty quickly and is more in line with the "they can't outnumber us" kind of thinking. I'd still rather have two than one, but one is better than none. Right now I'd say twins would be great so we won't have to go through this hassle again, but I might regret saying that when I end up with two newborns. If this embryo adoption thing falls through I know we will continue working towards adding to our family one way or another.
