busy as a bunny

In a totally metaphorical sense I am currently engaged in making babies.

My husband and I are filling out paperwork, going through background checks and jumping through all the hoops that constitute the “home study” and application part of beginning an adoption.

Before anybody gets excited, no we are not yet matched with a birth mom. These are just the hoops you have to get through BEFORE you get to look at potential matches.

But I just wanted to post to let you know why I may not find time to write quite as much for the next week or so.

By the way, so far Christian Adoption Consultants has been wonderful! They are so professional and talented. And they are FUN which is very important when you are dealing with us. Martin and I both love to laugh and if we had gone to this meeting and found people who were stiff or formal we would have been doomed. But Amy, Malcolm and Cheri are fun, casual and caring. So we will get along just fine.

Everybody pray, okay? Pray for us to cross all the t’s and dot all the i’s and pray for our birth mom (whoever and wherever she is) to be healthy and happy and supported in her decision.



I’m going to outright ask for input here.

Anybody ever heard of

Christian Adoption Consultants (dot) com ?

Martin and I are considering using their services and I thought I’d ask to see if any of my blog-friends knew anything about them.

By the way, I hope it rains today. Not because the ground needs it. Not because our lakes are so low.

But simply because I’m in a rain frame of mind.

Seems like it’s been forever since we got a really good, all day rainy day. For some reason I’ve always viewed rain as analogous to God’s blessings. Even when it “ruined” a picnic or some other outdoor plan during my childhood. Rain has always felt like God directly touching the world.

So let it Rain! Please God, let it pour.
