pun intended...It's our rainy season.

I'm a WAHM. We have a 2 year old daughter and we're in the process of adopting a son to complete our family. He currently waits for us in a Chinese orphanage and we hope to have him home by the end of May 2006. He is two months younger than DD and we've done all we can, now we're waiting on government entities to do theirs. Due to health crisis I'm pretty much home bound until early spring so DH bought me a laptop to keep me going...

Welcome from a mama on the Eastside. :

I am a 40 year old unschooling, belly dancing, artist-mama of one almost 8 year old. I just had brain surgery and blogging.jpg about it a bit because it's just so surreal.

ecomom,

Sorry for the late welcome by me.

I'm glad you came here and hope you stick around for a long time.

My name is Jessica and I live near NYC on the NJ side of it, but want to move out to the northwest in the future, hopefully when I first get marry. My parents aren't that crazy about the idea, hope they change their minds when the time comes. Also, want to adopt from China as well.

Have you heard of this organization The Half Sky. http://www.halfthesky.org I did and I'm on their mailing list as well.

Thank you.

Welcome.

I am currently in San Diego, but from Seattle. We will be moving back to the Seattle area in about 8 months, and are really looking forward to it.

Welcome to the forums.

Hi ecomom! I live in Sammamish, and I'm expecting a baby at the end of May too! The stork is bringing mine though, so we're pretty sure she will be a newborn when she gets here
