Welcome to the unfolding process of adopting our very first child! We started out planning to adopt a baby girl from Vietnam, but because of unrest in the international adoption world, we pulled out and are now working on a domestic adoption in our home state of Oregon. We hope to meet our little one sometime in the next year.
For this site, we hope to put up a healthy mix of the technical (status of paperwork, government forms, etc.) and emotional (photos, fun adoption stuff, “We want our baby!!”-freakouts, etc.). We predict a few future posts serving as nothing but therapy for us, so be forewarned! 😉 Finally, when we finally bring the baby home, this blog will serve as a way of showing her (maybe him?) to all our friends and family who can’t meet her right away.
Thanks for stopping by,
Kate and Joel
