Well, I took a much needed break this last week from blogging. And I debated whether or not to even blog again. I had reached 101 blog posts since I started this blog, and I wondered if that was enough. I was very PMSy and was tired of waiting for life to get better. I was focusing too much on what I didn't have. I should've been happy, I had finally come to a new chapter in this hamster wheel of infertility, but I wasn't. But I do blame that on my period, because I am feeling much better now.
Well, we went away for the 4th of July weekend and it was a much needed break. We visited with family in Utah. It was so nice to see some interesting topography. The mountains were beautiful. They were so green with a little bit of a snow still on top. And I loved the dry heat as opposed to the humid heat I get here in TX. We hiked, relaxed, ate BBQ, and saw fireworks. It was great.
Anyhow, since I am back to writing on my blog, I will share my news: We have completed the paperwork, home visit, fingerprints, and all the other stuff that we needed for adoption. Our profile went live last week. It is exciting because it seems like we have been working on it for so long. I wish I could've told you all sooner, but my husband didn't want me to, so I couldn't.
I am excited we have made it to this step. There were times when I didn't know if we would. The paperwork is so extensive and intrusive--asking every little thing about yourself, it is enough to make you wonder if you really want to undergo this process. But we made it through it and I am glad.
I keep secretly hoping that we will be matched in just a few weeks, that would be a dream come true. At any rate, I will take comfort in the fact, that we are another step closer to having our child in our home. Soon enough it will happen.
