Yesterday we got our draft of the Homestudy, and today our graphic designer finished our profile and sent the files on the printer. I am so thrilled to be finished with this part of the process and am filled with excitement and nerves for the next step.
We are just days away from officially being on the market as adoptive parents and the search for our next child will begin. It has been a real experience. We have been doing a lot of reflection and have been forced to discuss and examine the past 30+ years of our lives. It has been exhausting and at times painful, but in the end an incredible process. Ultimately, I am grateful.
I have never felt so clear about who I am and what I want out of life. I feel truly ready and prepared to go forward. There is no question in my mind that this is the right choice for us and for the first time in years I am allowing myself to be excited about a baby.
Thank you for you support and encouragement these last few months. I hope that I will have good news to share with you soon!
