I’m used to having to hold it together when things get rough. I’ve been doing this for many years. I’ve been through a lot of pretty crazy things during my 36 years on this earth, and despite a couple of meltdowns (and an occasional panic attack) along the way, I believe that I’ve held out pretty well. It used to be much worse. I didn’t … Continue reading Dead End Roads
We placed an inquiry on another little girl (8 years old, adorable, long brown hair, big brown eyes, NC) this week. Some may read this and say that this is foolish as we have two possible matches “in waiting”. Say what you will, but at this point, we are not going to let anything pass us by. If we have learned anything in this adventure … Continue reading A Breath of Fresh Air!
I saw the cutest little girl at the grocery store this evening. She’s about the same age as the little girl that we are waiting to hear about–the foster/adopt possibility, that is.

She is about a year-and-a-half, African American, no delays, and about two hours or so from our house. They are still looking for family, so we have no way of knowing if it could turn out to be an adoption situation or not. … Continue reading Sometimes You Are Afraid to Say, "No".
We have had a great vacation! We left last Sunday for Gatlinburg / Pigeon Forge, TN. As always, we had a GREAT time. It was very nice to just get away from all of the chaos of life for a while. (We will post pictures on the other blog sometime this week.) We saw lots of fun and wonderful things and went on lots of nature hikes and … Continue reading Home Again, Home Again!
Corey and I took a short day on Thursday to meet with our resource person and her supervisor. The meeting went well all-in-all, but I’m not so sure it really moved us ahead in any way. It was really the typical ’round and ’round we always hear. We did; however, find out ways to be in contact with caseworkers from other states more directly (loopholes … Continue reading Meeting the Supervisor
