I wrote a few weeks ago about how excited my husband and I were to become foster parents, and promptly posted photos of her adorable face all over our various social media accounts. We found out shortly after that it’s not O.K. to post images of foster children on the Internet. Which on the one hand really sucks, because this baby is extremely cute. On the other hand, keeping a foster kid’s identity confidential makes a whole lot of sense. So we took down all our photos on Facebook and Twitter, and I removed my initial post, which I’ve now reposted sans photo.
Anyway, I didn’t want you guys to think anything bad or sad had happened so consider yourself updated. Frida is doing great, her cheeks and belly are ever-expanding, and our sleep deprivation is profound. It’s a big old love-in over here that unfortunately I cannot share with you visually. Instead, here is a photo (no retro filters necessary!) of my mom holding me when I was three months old on the day she took me home from a foster home. Crazy how life comes full circule isn’t it? Also, have you ever seen a fatter baby?
