I suppose that we expected some waffling from the bio mom. I don’t think that we ever thought that she would make her decision at 30 weeks and that would be the final guarantee! With adoption, it’s a little ridiculous to think that—nothing is final until the judge says he is legally ours. This is the hardest decision she will ever make in her life. It’s a … Continue reading Shifting Gears
March 23rd, 2011. Today we find out the date of the birth mother’s C-Section and the date that we (keep your *fingers crossed*) will hold our little one in our arms. I have to admit, I’m feeling a little um…wacky?! The very moment that I catch myself getting excited this voice in my head tells me not to “count my chickens before they hatch”. I suppose this … Continue reading Step by Step
We placed an inquiry today for a sibling group of four girls ages 12, 10, 8 and 5. It’s hard to tell a lot from the initial profiles, but from what we can see they will fit really well into our family. We typically have to wait for that information once the home study is evaluated. I think I finished the inquiry at 1pm this afternoon and … Continue reading From Two to Six? Perhaps!
I have this client. He’s impossible. He drives me crazy but he loves me. He is actually one of my favorites, if the truth be known. What can I say? I love people that tell it like it is, and he’s exactly that. On any given day he can give me a migraine, but he is incredibly kind at the same time. It makes no … Continue reading Sometimes Hope Comes in the Most Unexpected of Places
We have checked our emails. There was an email from our worker regarding a possible foster/adopt situation. It was for a little girl. 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!
We have a new inquiry in on an 8 year old little girl from Georgia. She is absolutely precious and from her profile, it seems she’d fit right in our little family. Whoever it was that wrote the profile on the website did an excellent job in their description. Not to mention that she is as cute as a button. She’s another freckle-faced darling with gorgeous red hair and … Continue reading News…of Sorts.
