Unexpected tears...

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.
