New Here...My DS Just Turned 6!!
Sun, 12-11-2005 - 11:33pm
Hi Everyone!! My DS just turned 6 years old today!! So I'm new to the board and just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Jennifer and I'm 27. I'm happily married to my DH Eric who I've been married to for a little over a year. My DS is from a previous relationship and we just got the approval letter for my DH to adopt him, so hopefully by mid to late January the adoption will be finalized. My DS has only known my DH, he's never known his biological father. My DS just started Kindergarten in September and he loves it! We're expecting a baby girl on December 15th and we're all very happy about it. My DS is supposed to be present at the birth if all goes as planned and in his words he doesn't want to miss all the excitement! Well if there's anything else that I've forgotten to say feel free to ask or take a look at my profile. I look forward to getting to know all of you and having a new board to hang out on!

Welcome to the board, Jenn!

I have only been posting here for about four months or so, so I am new also. You have some exciting times ahead, what with the birth of your little girl and your son's adoption - hurray for you! :)

I have one six year old son and one four year old daughter. I, too, am a SAHM, except that I just started my own business. But it is very slow right now (which is just fine with me) so I don't think it really counts at this point.

Hope to hear more from you soon,

Welcome!!!! It's great o have you join in. My kids are actually too young and old for this board now but I love talking about this stage of development and this age.

Happy adoption, and keep posting! =)

Congrats on your soon to be dd! I am sure your ds will be a wonderful big brother. That is so wonderful your dh is adopting your son! What a blessing. I have a 71/2 yo ds and 11 1/2 yo dd. I was a sahm for 11 years, until my dh lost his job this past April. He has been home full time since and I got a part time job. I truely miss staying at home full time but it is nice to get out once in a while. Dh was told to expect to stay home for a year, so hopefully soon he will go back. I did do daycare for 10 yrs from my house, but only part time. It is nice to leave the house some days though, lol.
