Hello Again

Hello Again

It’s been a long time since I last posted on our blog. All of you reading this are a part of our journey for different reasons. You may be part of our family, a friend, we may have connected through infertility, adoption, or ivf, we may have connected because we have twin loss in common, we may have connected because you also had a baby in the NICU, you may have become part of our family during our NICU stay,…

A New Path

A New Path

Our adventure to start our family has not been a predictable one. I’d always thought we’d have difficulty getting pregnant and that we would need medical help. When our third iui was unsuccessful last year we were ready to move on. We needed to do something new and adoption felt like the right option for us. We spent months saving and researching adoption. We chose an adoption agency in Kansas, completed our home study, and became a waiting family in…

We spent the last few weeks building our adoption profile book and our online profile for our agency’s website. Our agency will use our profile book…

Adoption Adventure Update

Adoption Adventure Update

We’ve had a few people ask recently where we are at with adopting so I thought I’d do an update. During my spring break in March we turned in our home study binder. It was exciting to have it all together and hand it over. The next week we had our home visit with our social worker from our agency. It was so much more laid back than I expected. She talked with us together about their agency and process,…

Getting Started

Getting Started

Anyone who knows me well might say I am an impatient person; I hate waiting for anything. Waiting to start our adoption process has been no different. These last few months have felt so long but we’ve been doing a good job of saving. Knowing that once our adoption home study is complete, we could wait for as little as two weeks or as long as two years for a placement, we decided we wanted to go ahead and get…
