Just a quick tidbit on us.
I am M, author of this adoption blog, and D is my wonderful husband of several years. We are currently childless, unless you count an adorable, grumpy dutch rabbit. Adoption has been a dream of mine since childhood. Lucky girl that I am, D hopped on right on board when we brought up kids and said, yes, let’s grow our family through adoption. So here we are, ten years together and over six years married, preparing to finally bring a third person in on our wild journey that is life.
A lot of our family and friends have questions, so I am sure that there are strangers out there who may wonder why we chose adoption or be perplexed about our choice to do so internationally. While I cannot give an answer to every question here, D and I are committed to doing what is best for all children, not just our own future child, even if that means waiting several years until we have a match of our own. We are earnestly researching every avenue we can and I plan on sharing most of what we find out with you.
Aside from that, what else can I say about us? We love to explore the outdoors, cook, play board games and read high fantasy and sci-fi novels; I have a certain penchant for mysteries as well. We have a wonderfully supportive family that is making this process much easier on us as we begin to fill out the paperwork and enthusiastic friends who make sure that we smile and laugh through the stress of it all. A million thanks to everyone who is thinking of us and praying for our family through this journey.
The choice to use initials vs. names is to protect our identity as I write about our experiences with the adoption process and, hopefully, parenting in a multi-racial, interfaith family. You will most likely not see many photos of ourselves. However, I will try to share some snapshots as we adventure through this crazy, wonderful life.
