Guess who's adopting!

This is me adoring one day-old Emma.
We are! We are! We are! And we can't wait to get the party started! We're going to adopt a newborn from right here in the States.

Well, technically the party's already started with oodles and oodles of research. Agency vs. independent. Finances. Lawyers. References. Interviews. Home study. The list goes on and on. Good thing I love researching, isn't it? LOL

I've signed up for informational meetings at agencies nearby. One isn't until July and that seems forever away. But there's plenty to do in the meantime...

  • professional photos
  • writing the Dear Birth Mother letter
  • the home study
  • checking references/ratings of lawyers, social workers and agencies


So if anyone has any advice to share, I would love to hear it. And please, please, please keep our future baby and its very special birth mama in your prayers. Thanks!
