I don't quite know how to begin, so I figure the best way is just to start writing. I guess a little introduction is in order: my name is Andy, and together with my husband Brian we're starting process to adopt our first child. We're both in our late twenties, have been together for almost five years, and now seems like the perfect time to start our family! It's exciting (and more than a bit scary!), both for us and for our family and friends.
We decided to start this blog with the idea of chronicling our adoption process in full, from beginning to end. All told, it's a process that could take anywhere from a few months to a few years, and while we have some idea of what to expect, there's still a lot that's unknown. I'm hoping that by writing a bit about what's going on in our lives, we can keep all our friends and family up to date and give our future child(ren) some record of how their family was created.
No guarantees about how often we'll post; while I'm sure we'd like to be really ambitious and give updates all the time, life's sure to get in the way! In the next few days, I'd like to explain a little bit about how the adoption process is going to work, and then talk about the steps we've taken so far. In the meantime, welcome and enjoy!
