Cormick Fitzpatrick born on December 8, 2009. Our Christmas miracle! He made a surprise early arrival, but we are convinced my Dad is behind this all! And my grandmother since he was born on her favorite number 8. When I have more time I will sit and write out Cormick's story. This little guy is so loved by his birthfamily and his adoptive family. I hope that this will help him grow to be a strong and secure individual!

showered with love

When I would think about losing my Dad, it was unimaginable to me. I thought I would never survive the loss. I would pray to God not to take him from me because I knew I couldn't handle it, and I know God doesn't give you more than you can handle. So surely, I wouldn't lose him. If it wasn't for this baby, this amazing birthcouple and all our family and friends, I probably wouldn't have been able to function this past month.
In the past two weeks, we have been "showered" with love. Our friends and family threw me two wonderful baby showers. One in Virginia and one in Ohio. This little miracle is so loved by so many people. He already lights up my life. I can't tell you how much the joy of adoption has helped me in grieving my Dad. I am amazed everyday at how blessed we are to be apart of this incredible experience.
