I can’t believe this is true

(I have lots of things to write about but they will have to wait)

One year ago today, P’ito landed on U.S. soil with us.

It’s been quite the year: new baby, new city, new home, new job.

It’s been the craziest, most joy-filled year of my life.

Thank you Pili, for helping me to realize my dreams, and thank you P’ito, for making us a family of three and realizing our dream.

I don’t have words for how much my heart swells when I look at you both.

p.s. Over on the right there is a new button for “Erin’s Shop.” I first met Erin when we were visiting P’ito and she and her husband were fostering their daughter in Antigua.  P’ito has been home for a year – and they are still there.  If you would like to help us celebrate this first family day, or if you have any sort of gift-giving need coming up in your life – please click through and take a look at the beautiful crafts Erin is making using Guatemalan textiles.   In addition to being works of art, they’re also her family’s primary source of income right now.  In honor of our first anniversary of being a family – won’t you please help someone else achieve that goal?

  7. Congratulations — its hard to believe its been a year already! BTW, have you considered going to California or Canada (or Mass., some towns like Cambridge do not adhere to the residency requirement anyway, besides all you need to do is tell the town clerk you’ve taken a job in any Mass. town and most don’t harass couples who want to do it there anyway now that Romney is no longer governor there) to formalize your union now that NY Governor Paterson has mandated that all NY State agencies should recognize unions legalized in other jurisdictions be recognized where it is recognized legally? The reason I ask is because Joe and I are giving it consideration and I was unsure whether any other New Yorkers might also consider it?

  8. Congratulations for a year of wonder! I am so happy for you guys.
