Month 25

Piece by piece, we are adding to the nursery. Can’t wait to match with an expectant family or get the “call.”

Month 24

Today marks 24 months as a waiting family. It also happens to be our Goddaughter’s 1st birthday. Happy Birthday, T! We are looking forward to celebrating her next weekend at her birthday party. Today, we are staying busy around the house which includes a glimpse at our new profile. Profiles are given to expectant parents who have chosen adoption for their child. Imagine choosing a family for your child based on a few pictures and a few pages of words! We are still waiting on Jessica’s background check, but after that, we should quickly be approved.

What does a home study update look like?

March Recipes (& Adoption Update)

Month 22

Two of our “little” cousins came over for the weekend. We love when they visit! They love playing as many games we can fit into our time together. This visit we played Racko, Batman, Life, Wahoo, Clue, and Watch Ya’ Mouth. We also played Scoop Ball and Frisbee outside. We can’t believe we played all those! It was tons of fun (even Life). Jessica usually has at least one project or activity available. This time she had the recipe for Ooze, and E was all about making it. She doesn’t mind getting her hands dirty. K joined in once he realized it came off your hands easily. We enjoy all the fun we have with family and are looking forward to the next family get together. E tends to ask a lot about the baby. She can’t wait for a baby to join our family. K, being a boy, seems less interested. Haha!   Jess loved hearing their “little” footsteps in the morning, and she imagined hearing our children’s “quietly” stomping around the house. We know no matter how many months we wait to be parents it will be worth it. Feel free to share.
