I see so much of you in her sweet little face! SO happy to see you're blogging again! Is this going to be a regular affair? I'm hoping so! :)

Pure joy!

Thanks Rosa and Mary!
Regular affair . . . not ready to commit, but it's good to be back.

Tara Ma

I too, have appreciated your posts from the past. Your thoughtful and honest reflections are refreshing to read.

Thank you for that, Tara.

What a nice surprise to see you're back! I have checked in intermittently, hoping it would be so.

Ange k

Ariana sure looks like you Martina, what a little cutie


Your children are all so beautiful! It is very nice to read your voice again. I love to hear your well thought out and articulate thought son being a mother and a clinician.

I hav e also wondered if I did my baby wrong when 6 years ago we brought. Morgan home. Henry - at 10- still isn't really over losing his baby status. But more and more he is starting to play with his little brother and learning the benefits of being the big brother who gets to lead the game instead of always in his big brother shadow . I have hope for their future relationship!
