I Have an Announcement!
I have decided that I will include a few little stories and bits of info, just so the people who are watching my life and art are included in all aspects which affect those two areas.
So here's the scoop: we are adopting! Last year, I never wrote about our plans or our short efforts with the doc, but after three years and no smushy little one to call our own, we decided to adopt. As I learned, one can do a private adoption (international or domestic) or through the county. The former can cost between $15-30k, and the latter is free, but likely stickier situations.
If you're more interested in how we came about the decision to adopt versus through fertility treatments, or about how we decided to go through the county versus private agency, or anything else you can think of, I'd be glad to be a sounding board, a mentor, a shoulder, or informational source.
As for this little blog that I've loved for sometime, and I've had the pleasure of hanging out with you all, I would still hope to share all things creative and motivating and lovely. Don't worry, I'll for sure be posting about DESIGNING the NURSERY! and other such baby-related frippery, but not yet. I just wanted to keep my loyal lovelies abreast of the situation...and solicit some prayers and such for the long process ahead of us.
