First Real Post...New Member to our Family

Well, I thought that I should actually post something about my family. First, I am currently the only member of my family that is not in a relationship. I am not ashamed about that, but I do know that I do miss out on this. But, enough about me. This post is actually about a new member to our family.

In order (oldest first), I have a sister(married), a brother (with girlfriend in extended relationship), myself, a second brother (married), and a third brother (planning on getting married to girlfriend). The second brother and his wife are in the process of adopting a baby. From what I was told, the birth mother has already surrendered all custody rights to them. The only stumbling block is that the genetic father is not in the area, and they want to make sure that everything is down in writing (especially his surrendering of all parental rights). I understand why they want this all done in writing, since they do not want anything to go wrong in the future.

Yes, I got to see my new nephew on Saturday evening. It was just after his evening feeding, so he was well awake. He was so cute. He may not become a spoiled child, but he will have an aunt, four uncles (one being my sister-in-law's brother), and two sets of grandparents who are glad to have a new member of the family.

And Now...Something New

Hello to everybody out there in Blog Land (tm). I guess that, if others out there are starting their own blogs, then I can also create my own. In this blog I will write on events in my life, items that I see in popular culture and current events, and random thoughts that come to me.

Do not expect regular updates, as I will write as I feel the need. I am not trying this just to feed my ego. If I want to do that, I would seek to do this for profit. This is expressing my thoughts.

Now, an introduction. My real name is James, and if you know of me (and my nickname), then you know who I am. Others may inquire, but I will tell only if I feel it is necessary. Mind you, I am not choosing to remain anonymous, but I do choose to remain private. Chances are, the items that will be included here will not be controversial. If so, I will add it to the title.
