5-15-15 is the day things got real. 5-16-15 was our “Oh Shit” moment. On 5-15-15 we became fully active with our adoption agency and our first training for our Home Study began today. We are about to become parents. I feel I should have more of an eloquent statement than that. I mean it’s not like we haven’t been planning this…for a few (10) years. We will be responsible for a child. There is an expectant mother somewhere in the United States who is about to get our profile and think to herself “They can give my child a great life”. That is such a daunting task. I have problems giving Leaeryn a good date night, now I’m supposed to give someone’s child a great life? Crazy right?! But I’m up for the challenge – as a matter of fact we look forward to it. In a later blog I will go in depth about the adoption process and the training we had today. I just wanted to drop this post so I can capture this thought of “We will be parents”. Scary. Exciting. Humbling. Exhilirating. All of those words describe what I’m feeling simultaneously.
