Bits and Pieces

As I've hinted at and changed the title of our blog over the last few weeks, we are beginning on a new journey. The Journey towards adoption.

We are in the beginning stages, so I will only give you small "bits and pieces" for now, but I will tell you we are all so excited. This will be a long journey, filled with uncertainity, paperwork, and more uncertainty. This week we will begin our Home Study and after a long day of Spring Cleaning, with much help from Grammy & Kiby, I feel sort of ready. Ready if you can ever be for someone to analyze your home, your family, they way you parent, if you are capable of parenting another etc. Some say in regards to the adoption process about jumping through hoops when conception, for most, can be so easy. Luckily for us, we are used to jumping through hoops, especially those that look more like Mexican jumping beans moving all over the place keeping you on your toes to get to the next step. But- we are ready.

The one other Piece I will leave you with is that we are Adopting from the Philippines. The birth place of my Father, and he has graciously agreed to Travel with us when we are ready. Well really I haven't given him a choice. Sorry Dad, your going- I can't handle Rob on a plane for 30hrs by myself, I need a helping hand.

And Caila you ask? She continues to be amazing, and wise beyond her years. We are truly blessed.

Hello! I found your blog through a link on my stats board for my blog. I'm so glad that I stumbled across it too! I read about your son, and I'm so sorry for your loss.

I'm excited as you go through the crazy adoption process to bring your son home. Can you share how far along in the process you are? I always love finding new adoptive families going with the Philippines!
