this is the post i have been waiting to write
for the past eight years...

and now that it is here,
now that i can,
it terrifies me.

we are adopting.

there. i said it.
really, i want to scream it from the rooftops.
every person i see,
every friend, i want to say..
guess what?
we are adopting.

but i don't.
it is my story, and not theirs,
and i get that.

but i am excited.
we are excited.

and i have been blogging about it for a while
over at Not Forgotten

i am going to try to focus that blog
on just adoption stuff,
and keep this one for everything else,
as i know that not everyone is as into hearing the boring details of home studies and waiting, and paper work and fingerprints.

but i couldn't wait any more.

we are adopting.

hooray us. :)
