    Thank you to everyone for all the support a few months ago when I felt like I was going to loose my mind :) This match definitely had me going around in circles for a while for sure! We had a really rough start. But thankfully, Z is doing SO much better. She can still be on the irritable side...

    Our DD is 20 mo and I'm wondering when we can start the adoption conversation. Is this too early? What can we do at this age? We have a baby book with her adoption story and pictures from DDs birth and of her birthmother. But DD is still at an age where she wants to tear pages and I don't...

    We just committed to adopting a sweet little boy! He was a "waiting child" on Reece's Rainbow and now we are set on the journey to adopt him! They just put our Family page up on their site! Click here to see it! We are SO excited!

    Here is the really long post in SN http://www.mothering.com/community/forum/thread/1303888/talk-to-me-about-neuropsych-evals-and-the-almost-4yo-long#post_16331924 ETA; Just realized that I didn't specifically mention that this is with Isaac (DS3). Oops--very tired! The short version is that...

    Just wanted to share, our homestudy is finally done, after 6 1/2 months! It's been 11 months since we started our training classes and paperwork, we did a LOT of waiting on our busy social worker, definitely took longer then we were expecting but there was joy in the waiting. We are even more...

    Our family is starting to get ready for our finalizations (I seriously didn't know if it would ever happen, so YAY!!!). It's not actually scheduled yet but will be soon, we expect. DH and I would love to mark the day each year as "adoption day." Or some other name, that's still up for debate...
  7. Adoptive and Foster Parenting
    We were asked by friends to adopt their newborn, and she will be moving in any day. We are proceeding with getting set up for a home study through CSS, and I have a question regarding an issue in our house. The previous owners built it with one official bedroom, but set up the extra living room...

    I felt like with DD adopted last year, I had so much sympathy and compassion for her birth mom. I genuinely grieved that she couldn't take care of DD. This was a case of not being able to parent, I feel through no fault of her own. Now fast forward to our current foster daughter and her mom...

    I posted an update and a link to my blog last month and then crazy happened and I had to move it. New blog is www.lastmom.blogspot.com. My girl is 10 and our one year anniversary of her moving in is coming up in May. We got the best surprise in the mail from the state of Texas not too long...
  11. Adoptive and Foster Parenting
    I am strongly considering foster parenting ever since I had a Pre-Pregnancy Consultation that said that I would be considered high-risk to have a child of my own, due to medical problems. Even though I want my own biological child, several of my relatives and people at church are wanting me to...

    Hi everyone! After 4 years of navigating the international independent adoption world, we finally have found our children in Uganda! We have a referral for a baby girl, almost 5 months old, and a 2.5 year old boy, and we couldn't be happier. We have found an amazing lawyer in Uganda who is...
