Andrea Santos and Baby
I can now talk about a big issue, as everything is final and we are free to talk about it.
On Christmas Eve, last year, my husband and I were given a 5 month old baby boy. We only had two days warning, and then life changed forever. My husband and I felt the strong desire to have a family but my health has been precarious and not much was happening. We went through the adoption process with the county and a couple of months later we met a baby we absolutely loved and a few weeks later we were given a surprise phone call sharing that “You are parents”. Our lives were forever changed. It was a wonderful, surreal and huge transition. I quite my day-job and instantly became mom. I went from being the Marketing and Events Director for Habitat for Humanity to wearing yoga clothes and concerning myself with bottles, diapers, naps and barf. Being at home also then freed me up to devote myself more to Shanti Shanti. The baby is consuming, but there is still some time to work on music and reach out to fans.
This new life has been wonderful. The baby has fit in with the whole family perfectly….almost like we have all known each other before.
While there has been virtually no legal obstacles I had to wait to share any real details until the adoption was finalized. On Tuesday, July 28th, he officially became our baby. This has truly been the most profound thing that has ever happened to me. I am so full of gratitude that sometimes I feel I might burst. It is humbling and incredible how God can move so fast.
I am so happy to finally get to share this with you guys. Shanti Shanti’s Vedic Lullaby is a perfect song to cap off this announcement. https://soundcloud.com/shantishanti/vedic-lullaby
