And.... we're off!

Last night we decided to go ahead and take the plunge. We had our plan in place, but have since decided to go ahead and move the schedule up a bit. We're planning on talking with the state first and going through their approval process. Once we are home study approved through the state (probably first of the year) we are also going to sign with an agency. Hopefully, after I speak with a social worker, I'll have more of an idea of what the time line will look like. It would be great to be an officially waiting family by February.

Hope you all stick around for the ride. It's going to be a good one! :)

  1. Hi, there. I am in your Hare Group. So you are adopting? How wonderful. We actually looked into adopting 17 years ago but then...we finally got pregnant {after 4 years of trying}. We have thought about it lately...but I think we are set with our family.

    I hope you'll stop by my blog soon and oh...love your happy background!!

    I am so happy for you!!! Making a decision can be such a relief, even if then you have to run around and do a bunch of stuff.

  7. Congratulations on taking the plunge into this wonderful journey. I know that it may be a bit of a wait, but so worth all the anticipation! I've had friends who waited a while to adopt and now that they've finally got their family (two precious little ones!) they couldn't be happier. I wish you the best on this amazing road you have ahead of you!

  9. Awesome! I hope that you are officially a waiting familt by February and placed with a child soon! I also wanted to thank you for the link to Single Dad Laughing yesterday. He brought up some really really good points about the social ramifications with adopting your child...I think everyone should read it! Best of luck to you and your husband (=

  13. Good luck with the process! I was adopted at birth. I have nothing but the most love and respect for my parents. I really hope you get on the waiting list by February. It's a roller coaster ride (according to my mom) but totally worth it in the end!
