Today, K and I received word that we have been approved for the foster-to-adopt and adoption processes (we’re not sure which path we’ll end up being led down, but either is open to us). We have another week or so to wait while our file is finally audited and the licensing procedure is complete.
It was five years ago that we started seriously thinking about becoming parents in this way. Almost three years ago when we started an application but stopped because we were told that we could not be approved while I was home-officing and meeting with clients at home. Eight months since we turned in our application for real. And now we’re potentially just a week or two away from becoming parents. The reality of it hasn’t fully sunk in yet, but we’re excited.
Fittingly, it’s also our tenth wedding anniversary this week. Lots to celebrate. And this section of the blog is about to become far more robust!
