Marci, over at KoolAid Moms is celebrating her daughter’s birthday. Today is my younger son’s 30th. We are going to an Indian restaurant. My sister is joining us. I am pretty exctied, because once a child hits adulthood, seeing him/her is sketchy.

He is adopted. But he has been with me (us) since his birth. His mother and I did a private placement adoption, that side-stepped adoption agencies. In the thirty years, there has seen my recovery from alcoholism, divorce, the passing of his mother. He has ADD and Asperger’s Syndrome. But he is not his diagnosis. He is just a wonderful young man.

I believe I will go get the makings for root beer floats and we will come home and have them for dessert. He likes them.
