Expecting

When the social worker told us the other day that she doesn’t forsee any problems with our adoption, meaning the adoption study has gone well, I breathed a sigh of relief. Maybe this state of “suspension” we’ve been in is similar to what a pregnant couple experiences during the first trimester. Do we tell people? Or should we keep it to ourselves. Just in case.

For me, it was just in case they say, “Ha! You a parent?” There are so many forms to fill out, questions to answer, books to read, articles to peruse, things to reveal about yourself during this process that I just wasn’t sure if we’d cut it. So hearing those words was pretty wonderful. Now I can actually feel that, yes, we’re going to be parents — and we can share that with everyone. Although, admittedly, I think I already have.

So now our household will expand yet again. This time it won’t be another furry creature, lest you think we were starting our own zoo. No, this time it will be a baby boy or girl from Korea. Hooray!

  1. Hey! I absolutely love looking at your photos. There’s always something new and interesting. Lots of congratulations on your adoption too! I was adopted, and I think it’s the most amazing thing someone can do 🙂

  2. Hey there. I’m just stopping by and I had to say congratulations! I enjoyed looking around your site as well. 🙂

  3. This is great I have 3 cousins that started in Korea and 2 nephews and a niece from Guatamala.
    One cousin is my age and has children of her own now. the rest are children yet. I also have 2 cousins adopted from here. And a cousin who gave up a child. Seen it many ways and everyone is happy or normally so. I know you will be very happy. It is very interesting how each child just seems to have ended up where they belong – I think it is God’s doing but interesting no matter what you think. The children I know just fit.
    here’s hoping the rest of the process goes fast.
