It’s Only the Beginning

This post is dedicated to my youngest brother, who had just moved back to Tennessee, back home to Mother who is probably ECSTATIC to have her baby back after almost 10 years of living apart.  I hardly post anything personal on this blog but Adam has been a part of my professional journey as much as he has been the little brother I can boss around….until he wised up 😛 Now I could EASILY be soppy about this post … (I also wonder how I will ever handle kids if experiencing this baby-grows-up-and-moving-on thing with baby brother is already so hard) BUT I shall share instead, the few significant moments of growth.
