Zoe’s birth mom is getting ready for a big change in her life; she’s preparing for a move to another state.  She’s going to be starting school there soon, too.  We have been so lucky to live so close to her.  We just found out about the move a few days ago and were very surprised to hear about her moving. 

Zoe and I were able to drive to her house to spend some time with her and her family yesterday.  It was good to see them, and it was really good to get to see Z (Zoe’s birth mom.)  She seems very excited for this next step.  Zoe got to cuddle with her on the couch and play with her puppies and her family’s new birds, too.  She got to toss the football around, too, and kept saying, “I gotta get to the game!”  It was pretty cute. 

Moving is exciting, hard, stressful…all rolled into one.  I think I added it up a while back, and I have moved 13 times throughout my life.  I’ve moved with my whole family, with one sister, with Steve and a roommate, and with just Steve.  It’s been a big part of my life – starting over in a new place, making new friends, and having new beginnings.  We hope that this move for her is something that brings her happiness and new opportunities.  And we hope that we get to see her really soon, too!

Zoe and I put together a scrapbook of Zoe’s art for Z…just a little something so she knows how much we love her.




Love you, Z.  So very much.  Hope everything goes well!

This post came at the right time as I am packing for my families first really big move. Very scary! It is very thoughtful for you to make this book for Zoe's Birthmom--I am sure she will cherish it.

Love the scrapbook of pictures!!! Hope the move is a good one but sad she won't be living close enough like your used to.
