We got the news today. Little T is not meant to be ours.
I think we're handling it well. We prepared ourselves for the possibility over the last two weeks. Preparation didn't make it less sad to take her photo off of the refridgerator tonight. But I know that being able to see that sweet little face every day helped us to move more quickly through the paperwork, inspired us to daydream about having a little girl running through the house, and made it easier for us to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Or the big brown eyes at the end of the paperwork...
I just hope the other family loves and adores her as much as we would have. I am torn about whether or not I hope she pops up in the blog community. I am sort of peeking around at blogs but haven't learned much so far.
We had a really long homestudy interview today. The one where we each get interviewed individually about our families of origin. Have I mentioned that I love our social worker? She is great and made it so easy and fun. Last interview is on Friday and then we're done!
- Me. Us. She.
- J and I have been married for almost 15 years. We have shared many adventures and a lot of watershed moments. In 2009 I began blogging and in 2010 we adopted our daughter from Ethiopia. In March of 2012 we began the process to adopt a little boy from Haiti. This blog follows the many twists and turns on the road to our two children and beyond.
