I heard this song by Rascal Flatts yesterday while flipping through the XM channels and really loved the lyrics. I can already see another short little video in pre-production. ;) It just describes everything that I went through with infertility which eventually led me to my daughters. I love when I find a song like this.


There's a place I've been looking for
That took me in and out of buildings
Behind windows, walls and doors
And I thought I found it
Couple times, even settled down
And I'd hang around just long enough
To find my way back out
I know now the place that I was trying to
Was you, right here in front of me

And I wouldn't change a thing
I'd walk right back through the rain
Back to every broken heart
On the day that it was breakin'
And I'd re-live all the years
And be thankful for the tears
I've cried with every stumbled step
That led to you and got me here, right here

It's amazing what I let my heart go through
To get me where it got me
In this moment here with you
And it passed me by
God knows how many times
I was so caught up in holding
What I never thought I'd find
I know now, there's a million roads
I had to take
To get me in your arms that way

In a love I never thought I'd get to get to
And if that's the road
God made me take to be with you

And I'd re-live all the years
And be thankful for all the tears
I've cried with every stumbled step
That led to you and got me here, right here

And speaking of adoption, yesterday was Shaye's full day at school. They have dance class on Wed. and they also had a birthday celebration. When I got there, my favorite little boy in Shaye's class was there (he's not usually there for dance, but he has decided he wants to now..hehehe...) and so was his mom. Her and I started chit chatting (which turned out that we yip yapped for an hour and I didn't even leave the school until 5!) and during our conversation she just casually mentioned, "When we adopted J and his older brother A......" and I think my jaw hit the floor. I had *NO* idea that this little boy was adopted!!!!! I think I've blogged about him before, but he is truly the sweetest little fella I have ever met. He always goes out of his way to wave to me when I walk Shaye in for the morning and always has a huge smile on his face. He LOOOOOOOOOVES Shaye (I can't stress that enough) and Shaye absolutely adores him (talks about him constantly). Sometimes when I go in to pick Shaye up he is waiting with her (since he is also a half day student) and every single time I see him he runs to me and throws his arms around me in the sweetest way and gives me a huge hug. He is such a gentle little boy and is so gentle with Shaye. I always joke around and tell the teacher and his mom that I am going to start planning their wedding now.

So, I talked with his mom for an hour and we shared adoption stories and it was TRULY amazing to find out how he joined his family. I have always felt a pull towards this little boy and now it makes me wonder if I felt that connection because he was adopted? Hmm....

Shaye and Joel run off to the hay house
