Tonight, I read the news that the adoption tax credit has been not only extended by Congress, but made permanent!!! I feel giddy right now! We walked in faith with Simon’s adoption, unsure exactly how the funds would come in to pay for his adoption. We took out a loan, committed to the idea that we may have to take the full life of the loan to pay it back due to the fact that the adoption tax credit was set to expire on December 31, 2012. We also know that we need to wait until the loan is paid off before we start to think about adoption #3 (yes, it’s in the cards for our family 🙂 ).

The fact that this tax credit was extended is incredible news for us. It means we’ll be able to claim the expenses for Simon’s adoption on our taxes after he is finalized this year, and pay off the loan that much sooner. Which means we could soon after see who the 3rd child in our family will be. I can’t wait!

Poor baby Simon had his second molar finally start to poke through this weekend, and today when I looked, the first molar was all the way in! He was in rare form, disliking life in general today, so we had wondered what was going on. Thank goodness for ibuprofen and acetaminophen. And for Eze’s go-with-the-flow and forgiving attitude when Simon is having a rough day. Today we were forced to get into our regular routine, since school started back up. Thankfully, I have a training I’m doing from home today thru Friday, so that has helped ease us back into the routine. Poor Simon was mad that Eze left for school this morning b/c he wanted to play with him, and then he was mad when he got home, too. Tomorrow’s bound to be a better day 🙂

I feel so safe with super heroes like these.
