My husband and I have started the adoption process.
This feels a bit like telling people we are “trying” which means, um, something else entirely. And let me tell you that other process? A whole lot more fun.
I have a feeling that I will have many a post to share about this new phase but for now I am just excited. We have selected an agency, set up our first class and…well the pee stick test was positive. Now we wait.
We are not adopting a baby. We want an older child. But one that is not TOO old. So we fall in this grayish area and so it will be a perilous journey with what I can only hope will be a happy ending in the long run.
And for now. I am just happy.
Happy that we decided to do this. Happy that we are willing to do the work involved. Happy that right now our child is somewhere in this world and hopefully someday soon we will meet.
Oh, and on a similar note – we’re getting a puppy. Soon.
I fell in love with a dog at a pet store. I called my husband and told him I wanted the puppy.
He said: ” why don’t we have another child instead?”
To which I responded:
“let’s do both.”
And that’s what we are going to do.
We are looking for a medium sized dog with short hair that is good with kids (3 of them!). If you have any breed suggestions, please share.
