Yesssss, it’s finally time to break out the sweaters and slippers around here! There’s a chill in the air - that means my favorite season has arrived. 2018 has felt like the longest year ever, and yet it still feels like October just snuck up on us.

When we look back on this year, 2018 will be remembered as the year we started the adoption process. The thinking and planning started before this year, but this is the year we met our lawyer, did a pile of paperwork and research, got legally approved, and started putting ourselves out there (here). It has been tough at times; but for me it’s easy to take the next step in the process when I think about the future, and what it’s all for. And when I think about the fact that we have done so much work this year, yes - it’s flown by.

Somewhere out there is a woman who might already be pregnant with a baby that will one day become part of our family - I think a lot about her. I hope she’s doing okay - and that she finds this website and sees something in us that makes her want to know more.  In the meantime, I’ll just be hanging out here wearing these slippers 24/7, trying to share a little bit more about us on this blog, and cooking a lot of crock pot chili.
