I know all of you are increasingly curious about my road to adoption and I'm thrilled to give you an update!
Since moving into our new home a little under two weeks we've filled out the paperwork to officially get started!
THANK YOU to all who support me both financially and emotionally. I cannot thank you enough. The support of all of you has been absolutely amazing. I wish I could show you just how much I appreciate you. This post will have to do.
My husband and I have created an 'opportunity book'. It's a book that we will share with a potential birth mother. They'll read about our lives, what makes us tick, and why we think we'd be a perfect match for their little one.
This allows them to not only connect with us, but to give them the opportunity to start the first relationship they'll have with the potential adoptive parents.
It's both terrifying and exhiliarating.
As a writer you think I'd be used to rejection but this a whole different ball game. All my husband and I want is a little bundle of joy. We've grown to love the idea of adoption. Allowing the child a possiblity of several kinds of love. Just the thought warms my heart. But there is that fear. A birth mother doesn't feel a connection with us, the adoption agency has trouble placing us with the perfect little one. Any of those.
It's tough to get out of your head. It's the one place you can never truly put aside. That being said I'm blessed to be a part of such an amazing community (all of you), and a loving husband.
I'll keep you informed as the path towards adoption continues but for now stop by Trashionista where I make my debut for When Love Aligns.
