it was seven whole years ago that my first-born, the romaniac, and i reached the end of our trip from bucharest, romania. there was more concentrated happiness and excitement in one spot than any of us have ever experienced before. it was the beginning of an entirely new journey that we're all still working on as we go. since the words can't do it justice, here are few photos of what things were like in the beginning. i still look for his birth certificate when i have to find the others. rock on, dear romaniac, rock on, love from your mom and the rest of us!
