Moving along....

Yesterday Brandon finished his autobiography and sent it to our social worker at the agency. This means, another meeting! I feel like this is another big step for us.  She'll really dive into some things that we wrote in our biographies and Brandon and I might learn a few things about each other too.

Last night we also printed off yet another application - this time for the infant adoption program specifically.   In it, it asks if we want to be listed on our agency's website once we are officially "waiting".   Brandon said, "why not?" 
Well, it also asks for three sentences to post on the web along with a photo.  This is obvioulsy my job as Brandon's strength is not his writing.   How in the world can you introduce yourselves and explain how much you want this in three sentences?  Not to mention express your gratitude for anyone reading it!   So far, I've written about 5 drafts. We'll see how many more it takes until I feel really good about it.

We're also working on signing up for Child Passenger Safety Classes and completing some other training is required.   I hope that we can get everything finished by the end of the summer. It's already taken a little bit longer than I had thought, but we lead such busy lives that it's hard to get it all done fast.

A couple of other things...
This past weekend we were able to get some family photos taken by KJB Photography and Design.  It's a husband and wife team and I went to high school with the wife half.  They are just starting out with this business and I was very happy that we had a reason to get some photos done.  The boys have already changed so much since our wedding a year ago and I wanted at least one really good shot of the four of us for our adoption profile.

We've also been recovering from our recent vacation.  Brandon and I were lucky enough to travel to Cozumel over Memorial Day. It was our first TRUE vacation together and it was quite the adventure! It was such an amazing experience and we can't wait to go back to Mexico in the future.   Next post will hopefully include some pictures!

  1. Can't wait for Cozumel pics!! You're braver than me taking a Caribbean trip in May!
    But, I'm an ice queen, and would probably melt!

    Doesn't it blow your mind how many hoops you have to jump through to adopt???

    Having a child, they shove you out the door in 3 days. To adopt, you practically have to be mother Teresa and Mahatma Ghandi in wedded bliss!

    Well, it seems at least.
