You know when you are growing up how you have a picture of what your life is going to be? A handsome husband, two kids, a boy and a girl, and a dog (or cat), great paying job, all by the time you are 30 – right? But then life happens and things don’t go as planned for whatever reason. All things considered, I’m a pretty lucky girl. Most of my “plans” have come true. I have a handsome husband [at least I think I do 😉 ], a wonderful little boy, an amazing dog, and a great paying job doing what I love, in a fantastic city. But Matt and I had to make a pretty tough decision last week. We decided to stop proceeding with our second adoption. We would love for Alex to have a sibling, and we would love to adopt again – however we are just not there yet. As you know, the adoption process is an emotional roller coaster – and we want to focus on our family of three right now – and enjoy Alex and all his wonderfullness. As I mentioned – we would love to adopt again, but when we put ourselves on the Call Back list for our agency again, we were just home from Seoul, on a real “adoption high”, and were scared about the potential 2012/2014 cut off date for Korean adoptions. We assumed we would be ready in a year – but we are not there yet. It was a very hard (and emotionally draining) decision to make – and honestly, I wasn’t in a very good place for a few days. But things are getting better. I just have to look at Alex and know that I have the most amazing little guy.
So there you have it. That’s the reason for the blogging break.
Ok, so once I load the software for my NEW CAMERA! I will share some pics from the last week.
