Yup. We are. Well!! Almost!
About three months back, K and I made the decision to grow our family through adoption. It had been on our minds for a couple of years now but this June we decided to take the steps necessary to make it a reality. The first step in the process was getting our home study done. A requirement mandated by the Government that certifies us as able, willing and healthy parents to be. It took a lot of paperwork, introspection and a giant leap of faith for us to get here. It has not been easy. There are miles to go yet before we can sleep metaphorically.
Yet, it felt right to celebrate our first milestone in this journey. Now, we enter the exciting phase where we wait to be matched with an expectant mom or a little baby that needs a home. From all accounts, we have heard it takes anywhere between a year and two. Earlier if we are lucky.
There are more questions than answers in this new adventure. The hope is that we will figure out the answers as we go along. So, while we wait, I have a request for you. Keep us in your thoughts and pray that our little child will find us.
If someone you know is going through a difficult time in their lives and is looking to make an adoption plan for their child, keep us in mind. Drop us a line and we will get in touch with you. K and I have plenty of love and security for a child that needs it.
