My parenting journal through life and adoption!




I am the mom to two daughter's, S (16) and L (3) and little Max who I lost to Trisomy 18 in my second trimester.

Just before I was pregnant with Max, my DH and I started to look into adoption and then I got an unexpected BFP after trying for over a year. Sadly I lost my little boy to T18 at just about 5 months pregnant.

Well, we have resumed our adoption journey...and we have signed up with a great agency and are gearing up to have our home study begin in just a couple of weeks.

We are very excited! We gathered about 20 photos for our portfolio and we have started to write our biography and getting the house in order.

Thank you for stopping by here...the last few weeks have brought our spirit down since losing Max...but we know we have his little spirit following us through this process.

Next step: waiting from the adoption agency on "setting up your profile" instructions!

yayyyyyy!

Thanks guys for coming!

So Lemon, to answer your question about photos, they don't want many (like 1 or 2) of the girls, mostly close up pics and lifestyle pics of us. And then a few of extended family, a few of our house and yard too.

Then the home study makes sure your pets are vaccinated, that we have fire detectors etc. It's kind of amazing given the many homes out there...that are really not kid friendly. But I completely get it.

I have no regrets getting this process started...I'm just still exhausted and sad but it's a good distraction. I'm hoping I can get my happy self back a little bit in this journal you know?

Following! God may have needed little max sooner than we'd like, but I bet he has someone really special lined up for you to love and raise! Good luck with everything!
