Well, we had our first official interview last week at the Children’s Aid Society to discuss domestic adoption as well as the foster to adopt program. My fiance and I know for sure we’re sold on the 0-2 age frame, and learned the importance of considering the foster to adopt idea, just due to the low number of children that are actually legally in the care of CAS prior to the age of 2. We’ve been talking A LOT trying to decide how we feel about this, and the risks associated.

The big news though? Things are moving MUCH faster than we had originally planned.

Finally taking my first break and sharing my thoughts on here of the craziness that is my mind right now! I keep thinking ‘well what if this isn’t good enough’ or ‘what if I could have filled that question out better’. How does anyone ever get through this part of the process without completely losing their mind?

But on that note, back I go… the bleach products are coming out to make sure the microscopic pieces of filth on my bathroom walls see their last day…
