I am in New Mexico. I am home. I am off and running!
We have 2 full days of appointments before we head to my parents home in southern New Mexico. These are the days that are so surreal! Last Monday, I was planning the end of my school year and sad that Jerry might not be in Hawaii for months!
One week later, I am completely responsible for him! It is so surreal and crazy. I have many appointments that serve as a crash course in the needs of Jerry. It is not as overwhelming this time since we have been through this before with Dillon. However, the feeling is totally overwhelming and amazing at the same time.
I am off and running here in New Mexico...
Right when we brought Dillon (our oldest son) we quickly realized we needed to think of what he would call us! He quickly named my husband Daddy and upon hearing his 2 year old friend call one of his 2 dads "Doda", Dillon decided on Dodie. After years of constantly lobbying for "Papa", I have grown to love and adore my name Dodie Here is a blog about my journey as Dillon and Jerry's Dodie!
My son Dillon was in foster care for 1,377 Days. We finalized our adoption of this firecracker boy in March of 2015 a few months before his 6th birthday. We are now in the process of adopting Dillon's younger brother "Jerry" from foster care! This blog will help paint a picture of two gay men raising two boys in this every changing world.
