It's been over a week, since the last referral, so I'm hitting the "bummin' zone. Of course, last Friday when my kids were CA-RA-ZY, I was thinking that I really am not in any huge hurry to add three to the mix. When the numbers stop moving, though, I get a little sad. So, while we wait for more referrals, I'll tell a little more of the start of our adoption story.
I think I was about 14 years old when the stories about the Romanian babies were hitting the news. The babies were pretty much just left in their cribs all day long to take care of themselves. I remember asking my mom if she would adopt one of them and I'm pretty sure she thought I was kidding. At that time, I was pretty sure that I would adopt when I grew up. So, there we have it. The very first step that has brought us to this point. There are about 2 more steps along the way, but I'll save them for other days where nothing is happening. I'll try to spice up the next post a little with some pictures of step number 2 toward adoption, so please come back. Until then, have a great day.
