Should we change our request to two?
TWO? Are we insane?
But two...hmmm...then baby would have a sibling that looked like her.
WHAT? Life as we know it would immediately be over. OVER.
But two...hmmm....then we'd never ever have to do this horrible wait ever again.
(J) WHAT? I don't ever plan on doing this ever again!
(A) WHAT? Don't you want baby to have someone she can relate to? I definitely see us having this horrible wait again. Unless we adopt two now...
(J) What if we had two adopted children and one biological child? Then would you need to have another biological child so things were "even."
(A) Um....do you want me to be honest?
(J) No. No! I don't want you to be honest because you are insane!
Waiting can make a person lightly insane I'll admit. But I don't think these questions are one of insanity. I often think about baby and how life would be easier for her with an Ethiopian sibling.
Today we are sane again. We are adopting one. And in my opinion this means short term ease but long-term we'll be waiting again someday. Just my opinion. Glad J doesn't read this blog!

- 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.
