It's been a while since I have blogged here, mostly because the fact that Nate is adopted doesn't really affect our day to day. But then there are moments when it strikes me...
Last night I was working on filling out a bunch of medical forms for our doctor's office and for an ENT appointment that I need to take Nate too. As I worked my way through his forms, I began to hit questions that brought unexpected tears to my eyes.
Here were the questions and what I wrote...
Has your child been hospitalized for any reason? Yes...for observation -- newborn found abandoned outside
Were there any problems during pregnancy? NA
Were there any problems at delivery? unknown
Please list as many family diseases and/or causes of death. NA -- adopted
Have any of your relatives had the following medical problems? NA -- adopted
It's those things that before were so routine that now unexpectedly strike deep into my heart.
