He is so much like his brother! His personality. His laugh. His smile! He has his brother's kind heart and optimistic view on life. He is helpful, respectful, and ridiculously independent. I am absolutely in love with this boy.
My heart aches for Dillon and Derrick back home, but the vision and images I have of their reunion help bay the homesickness.
This was meant to happen. Jerry is the final piece of the Lee puzzle. This was certainly a chance worth taking...
FaceTime is my new favorite technology. Watching our boys build a relationship thousands of miles apart is truly remarkable. It shows just how powerful technology is at building connections. I wish I could record every conversation so we all can remember just how amazing this process has been.
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.
