Over at My Other Place…

Over on Babble this week, I wrote on all things adoption; from updates to pretty finds. We also were assigned a social worker Friday {woot!} and with the paperwork done, this is one of the last steps before we’re approved! We have a few other things to do, and lots of waiting till some goes through, but getting a social worker was a huge deal.

Here’s what else has been going on:

  • We hit our first delay, and honestly it’s a little frustrating in an already long process. However, it’s very, very small compared to what other families are dealing with. And we probably have more coming, so I’m learning lots of patience in all of this.
  • I adore Etsy. So I went online one day and picked up all the most beautiful, unique adoption pieces I could find over there, and I have to say – they are all amazing.
  • We knew going in to this we’d be opening up our hearts to whatever path God chose, including how many kids. So we may get more than one.

We have a slow weekend planned, I have an eye appointment this morning where I get the dreaded puff of air {I really hate that machine}. but other than that we’re just hanging out.

Thanks for coming by my little space. xoxo

  1. I am so happy for you!!!! :) :)

  2. Haha “the dreaded puff of air” is my least favorite part also. If that weren’t a factor, I would actually love getting my eyes checked. Congratulations on the future in adoption!

  3. Hey– I too recently “lost” (dont like that word too much) a baby—he was stillborn on his due date. We have just begun the process of adopting domestically. I have enjoyed reading your blog! Hoping that ya’lls process goes quickly!

  4. Ah, that air puff is AWFUL! And I don’t know what is worse – when you FIRST have it done (and don’t know what to expect), or when you’re older, wiser, and can’t stop flinching before the test has even started ;)

  5. I didn’t know that anyone else hated the puff of air machine! Sometimes I just cannot do it…and I walk out of there only having one eye done. I am constantly pulling my face from the machine in anticipation. I’m happy to know that there is someone else out there that doesn’t enjoy that puff. I dread every appointment because of it :)
