Complete Learning Experience

 For the past three years I have been so focused on getting pregnant and not at all on having a baby. You would think they go hand in hand, but for me, they didn't.

I was also so concerned with ovulating, charting, and doctors appointments, that I really never thought past the two week wait. All of our finances were calculated to accommodate our out of pocket fertility appointments. Now, our situation is completely different.

Now I'm worried about getting a room ready, passing our home study, getting everything done with our attorney, and the constant worry that the birth mom could change her mind (I don't know about other states, but in Indiana the birth mom cannot sign off her rights until after the baby is born). It is all terrifying. Add in communication issues with the birth parents and financial concerns it is a whirlwind of emotion. One minute I'm up, the next I'm down.

Finally the reality of "we're going to be parents" has set in for me. I feel like I finally get what a huge deal this is. I'm so excited to meet our baby, but I'm equally excited for the adoption process to be over and for us to be a family.

In other news: Ingrid found SuperBaby's first clothes last night. I suppose if it is a girl we will have to add a tutu. 
Sorry, not sorry for the phone photo. Deal.

Do any of you know of anyone who has adopted? I'm interested in reading their blogs, or hearing your stories about them. Thanks, yo.

  1. Caroline @ Simply Smithwick is currently going through the adoption process too. I'm not sure what their current status is towards becoming parents but she's blogged quite a bit about it and seems to be pretty open to talking about the whole thing.


    1. Thank you so much! I have added her to my feed. :)

  2. You know me!!! And after I see my mom soon I am going to talk to her about me posting about being adopted :)

    1. I doooo know you! I hope this post is in the works, and if not I understand. I appreciate all of the talking you've done with me and allowed me to do! You are so wonderful.
