How's the adoption going?
It's a common, every day question. It's going :) Today, I shower at home. It's a little weird, to be out the door and not dressed like I'm going to a gym where I'll run, bike, or swim and then shower. Bob and I head to Ft. Collins today for an all day class. I'm excited about our first class, a requirement of the home study. I get giddy when I drop yet another piece of mail in the mailbox to request a certified copy of something. We'll also be scheduling all of our visits today with our social worker, who will write our home study. While I'm not a patient person by nature, I do understand the process of this. The kids are starting to too. They know our guy doesn't come home tomorrow. Last night, laying in bed with Maggie, I was explaining where we were going today. She asked if other people, who wanted to bring home a baby, would be there too. She gets it, as much as her sweet almost 5 year old mind can. I wonder how to prepare their hearts. I wonder if I even have to. We have amazing kids, and they'll be amazing siblings, just like they already are. Willing to love and comfort one another, and one more.
