While we try to teach our children all about life, Our children teach us what life is all about. ~Angela Schwindt

Today I am thankful for my children, Caleb and Madilyn. My children have brought so much happiness and joy into my life. My only complaint about them is that they are growing up way to fast. I wish that they would slow down and not be in such a hurry to¬†grow up. (more…)

Adoption

Monday, June 2nd, 2008

Most of you know that for the past three years we have been trying to adopt a child. We dealt with DFACS for about two years, and are coming up on the 1 year anniversary of working with a private agency. I am writing this to let everyone know that we have officially given up on adopting a child. We have spent countless hours in training, completing paperwork and in meetings and are still at square 1. We have also spent a ton of money on home studies and agency fees. Our paperwork expires at the start of July and we have no prospects of any children and in order to continue the adoption process we will have to redo our home study and pay more fees.

During the past year we have only been presented to 5 birth mothers. Two of these women, went MIA, 1 decided to use a agency that would give her more money, one really did not want to put the child up for adoption and with the most recent case the adoption agency never called us back, so we can only assume that the BMom choose another set of parents.

We both feel that if this was really meant to be we would not still be at step one. We have had all that we can take emotionally and need to move on with our lives. We have been stuck in “baby wish land” for far too long and need to figure out what the real plan for our life is.
