One Small Step

One Small Step

Feb 06

They say that, “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”  The journey of adoption, however, begins with a whole pile of paperwork!  In our case, paperwork which is now on its way to CAS.

These multiple questionnaires are not for the faint of heart. They ask many personal questions that probe deep into your life. They pose a ton of questions about what kind of child you are looking to adopt, making it feel somewhat like shopping for a child. But I suppose this is just the tip of the iceberg in the process. The very invasive questions and homestudies and so on are still to come!

While the reality of it all has yet to set in fully, it kinda feels like we’ve just sat down on the rollercoaster and fastened the restraint.  It’s starting to roll now, ticking slowly up the hill.  You know something big is going to come, with lots of ups and downs.  But for now, it’s just over the horizon… out of sight.

Anyway, it is certainly going to be an interesting ride, and we think and hope and pray we will be ready for what lies ahead. However, should you see us running around screaming with our hands up in the air, feel free to scream along with us and join us on the ride!
