Melanie, the two boys and I are headed to Chicago this weekend to introduce Mason to our family and friends back there. I grew up in Chicago and my two brothers and their families all live in the area still. It is always great to be in Chicago (if for nothing else than the food!) and it will be even better for my family to meet Mason.

My parents are throwing a welcome home party on Friday night so if you are in the area and we forgot to invite you (my mom did the inviting so i am not sure who we may have missed), let me know and I can get you directions to my parents house in Des Plaines.

Of course, if you can’t make it, you are still welcome to help fill up our adoption fund piggy bank! You can donate via pay pal e-mail me.
