So, where to begin? I guess from the beginning. My honey bunny and I have been married for 17 years and live in LIC, NY. We have two adorable sister cats Edie and Twiggy. Our life has been just the two of us (+cats) for a long, long time.
We've travelled, bar hopped, made career changes and lived life as much as two people can do, but we have not had our own family. Family is important to us, we certainly spend enough time with ours even though they live 300 miles away. Having babies just didn't work out as planned. Or maybe it has and we weren't aware of the plan. Anyway, our path has brought us to ADOPTION! Yes, Jenn and Marlon are adopting!
We are so happy, so nervous and so excited! We've wanted to a have a baby for so long and now we are. One day, I will be a MOM! We have just finished our home study with Bethany Christian Services Adoption Agency. And now we wait and wait and wait for the child that is meant to be with us.
I keep telling Marlon, what in the world are we going to do with a kid? He says, we will figure it out, babe. Do I know how to change diapers? No. Do I know how to burp? I can, but to burp a baby, no. I guess I'll figure it out.
Thank you to all our family and friends for your encouraging words, your prayers and support through the application process. I cannot tell you how much each and every one of you mean to us. xoxo
So, I wanted to share this wonderful news with you. I hope to help people understand the adoption process and to share my thoughts throughout.
