Have you ever heard the saying, “it takes a village”? As we were enjoying the past weekend at a friend’s daughter’s 4th birthday party, we realized something very important about our journey. We have a genuine support system. Our friends are those we’ve known for over half our lives and are constantly there for us as we are for them. Many have started their own families and have sage advice for us. Both of our families are also instrumental to our support system as well. Our parents and siblings are always available to talk or lend a hand. Currently, our parents both baby sit for our nieces and nephew during the week so that they don’t need to go to day care. They fully enjoy being grandparents and bonding time! We know not everyone is this fortunate and we don’t take it for granted.
“Being a family means that you are part of something very wonderful!”
