Sue and Laura kneeling on the ground with Ziva on adoption dayMy wife Laura and I have been talking about some of these posts, and remembering more details about some of the stories I have shared — and also reliving some other memories that we had completely forgotten about.  Writing these posts, I’ve been trying to share our experiences without going into excruciating detail. But we thought it might be fun to share more about some of these experiences for our friends, or for others who may have been going through things who are looking for more information.  So this page is sort of Director’s Cut/ Bloopers Reel. Starting with the title, which we jumbled accidentally and then laughed and decided to keep. Because if you don’t keep laughing through all this, you’ll never navigate the trip. Luckily, a dog like Ziva will show you the way.
