I eluded to this a few weeks ago, and the time was never quite right to follow-through with our big news. But for some reason I feel compelled to share our fabulous news with you tonight and the wait is officially over:
We are adopting!
I know, I know…it’s heady stuff. I get the chills every time I type those words. It feels so official putting it out here in bloggy land.
I’ve been keeping a little blog dedicated just to our adoption journey, and you are welcome to bookmark it, comment, and follow along as we turn our little family of four into a party of five.
There hasn’t been a lot of action to this point, just lots of paperwork. We’ve selected our agency (not that there was any real question of who we would work with), attended orientation in February, and have completed our home study. We are waiting for our background checks to come back, and sent off for our fingerprints yesterday. Which means we are still at least three weeks away from being approved.
But, for whatever reason, tonight feels like the right time to say those three little words.
We are expecting.
We are waiting.
We are thrilled.
We are petrified.
We are adopting.
