A Day of Acquaintence

You always think about the first day of meeting a child being the first day that they are their own person on this earth. The day they are born. The day that their longs fill with enough air to let everyone know that they’re alive. If adding a child to your little family becomes real…

Update: Dossier Completed!

-Important Link to come back to for YouCaring.com- At this point, adoption has infiltrated every last crevice of our lives. So much so, that people no longer ask us how we are doing when they see us, it’s “Hey You, how’s the adoption?” Which is fine. Really. But it opens a door that they probably…

Progress Update: 2014

Our home study will be completed this week (assuming that our FBI checks are done now as well). We’ve prepped a ginormous stack of applications to grants and one loan (cringe). All are waiting for this completed home study so we can check a little box for each one saying we’re good to go. The…
