Anyone who knows me, knows that I am a hopeless romantic. Anne of Green Gables, The Notebook, and Pride & Prejudice are some of favorite movies. As Valentine’s Day approaches every year, I get so excited. You might think it is the anticipation of romance, but actually my love for this holiday has NOTHING to do with romantic love.
I adopted my first son when he was nine months old. From day one he had a runny nose. Not just a regular runny nose, a thick and green runny nose that seemed to permanently hang from his nostrils. It was only a matter of time before the runny nose would lead to an ear infection and the ear infection would lead to antibiotics. Within two weeks of finishing a round of antibiotics, it would start again. Green nose, ear infection, antibiotics… repeat.
