It was the end of April, beginning of May that we finally brought our son home.  We've grown as a family together and he's just such a lovely fella - I smile whenever I think of him.

The next step for us is to formally adopt him (he's "placed" with us at present).  The court papers are in and we've had a preliminary hearing.  The final hearing should be in December or January.  Wouldn't that be just the best Christmas present ever!

Diagnosed with POF just before turning 32.  Have used acupuncture and TCM.  I am taking various supplements including multi vitamin, calcium, zinc, flaxseed oil etc.  Following osteopenia diagnosis, started HRT on 10 March 05 - reluctantly.  I have a fab g/f & we have a lovely dog (lurcher) & a mischievous cat (tabby).  We have one son who keeps us on our toes.

What beautiful timing. For the rest of his life when he asks what you want for Christmas you can always respond, "you are our favorite present!". He'll roll his eyes and slouch away as a teen, but it will probably be a great reminder for your whole family.
