This started out as a blog about our domestic adoption. So all of the older posts are about that journey. It was an interesting one, and it led us to our son, Jacob. My dream since I was a little girl was typical of most little girls. I wanted to get married, and have children and be a stay at home Mom. Although, not a very popular choice for a profession now a day, I find it very rewarding. As a matter of fact, every day is an adventure! I've been told personally that the stay at home Mom profession isn't 'work', but spend a day with me and you'll see just how much 'work' it is!!! It's blessed work!

Almost 40 days!!!!

I've been watching the American Adoptions forum and following the "waiting..." thread. It's kind of confusing. There is NO way to gauge anything on that forum. Some people have been waiting for 16 months, some have been waiting a month. Each profile is different, the budget vs. the flexibility doesn't seem to matter. A few ladies started to talk about checking in monthly with their social worker. I emailed Kelli and she said that she keeps a close eye on her people and that if the exposure level falls below average that she gets in touch with you. So, in the meantime, we wait, and wait and wait. We wait for a phone call from some birth mother's social worker or from Kelli to say that we need to change something. Tomorrow will be day 40.
Having Mom here and working on getting her settled has been a good distraction! I can't believe 2 weeks have practically flown by. Also the bluegrass festival is right around the corner and I'm working on the PR work for that. It's been a good few weeks.
Still praying for a call!!!! =)

A Baby Shower

My Mom called in January and said that she wanted to move down to Kansas with us. So we decided July would be a good time to move. When we were making plans to make the move, my best friend from home said that my home church wanted to give us a baby shower. The agency said not to make plans for this sort of thing in the little manual that we read; however, we thought that this was a special circumstance. So Friday nite, July 2nd Twin Ports Baptist Church had a baby shower for us. It was SO much fun!!!! We played some awesome games, my friend, Kim did a fantastic job on the devotions, the food was great! It was so good to see everyone! We played the melted candy bars in the diaper game (OH MY GOODNESS! SO FUNNY!). We also played a multi-tasking game. We had to hold a baby, carry on a conversation on a cell phone and hang up 15 pieces of baby clothing on a clothesline. It was a HOOT!!!! I won the first round...by a sock, but lost the final round...also by a sock. I was SO sore the next few days. We got a bunch of clothes (mostly boys clothes, but some girls clothes too); a handprint, footprint frames and a bank frame; some stuffed animals; and a carseat/stroller combo. It was SO cute! Anyway...here are a few pictures of the shower! THANKS Rach and Twin Ports Baptist Church for a wonderful shower!!!!! =)
