So, When are you going to go on the list for another baby?

Dear Friends, please know I'm not blogging about you.(It is perfectly fine for friends and family to ask this question, at least to me.) It is a good question, I'm sure people ask it when you give birth as well, it just sounds more like this: "so, when are you going to have another baby?"

But for fringe people who just happen to know that we're adopting J. It seems like they think I'm a collector or a baby hoarder or something. And they ask like the last 15 months of waiting has been no big deal. I've said before I'm a one thing at a time kind of girl. I'm sure there will be a time when it just seems like the "right" time. That time is just not right now.

We have a meeting with a lawyer to sign the Adoption Petition on Wednesday, It seems so intimidating to say that we're Petitioning the Superior Court of our county. Exciting but intimidating. My mom's cousin is a Los Angeles Superior Court Judge and he's the nicest guy in the world. So, hopefully we'll get a Judge like him.

So I suppose the answer to the question is: at least after we finalize this one.

Lord, Please continue to give H & D peace as they wait for their son to become their son. I pray earnestly that your will be done, and that what ever happens you are glorified through the events as they take place.

Blog PS. Justice William W. Bedsworth writes a blog that is HILARIOUS and informative at the same time. Sometimes it's not funny, but he manages to make things very readable and interesting that others would find dry. A Criminal Waste of Space

i'm not sure if anyone outside of my immediate family has asked me this one ~ maybe because now we're "cured". haha!! :)

It's funny, we haven't really gotten this question a lot yet, but there are a few persistent people who seem to want us to be ready again right away. The reactions are interesting, and as usual...more intrusive than they would be if we hadn't adopted.

I've given you a new blog award, check it out!
