We made the announcement last night

Filed under: Africa Adoption — Tamra @ 10:50 am

For mother’s day we decided it would be a good time to announce that we are adopting again to our family.  For the most part they reacted favorably.  I can tell that most of them think we are completely off our rockers, but it’s ok.  I really don’t expect people to understand.  The way my brain works is different from most of the people on the planet.  None of them said it to our faces though, and they seemed happy for us for the most part.  I thought my own grandmother was going to have a heart attack though.  I can imagine it’s even more difficult for her to understand.

Our homestudy is cruizin right along.  We should be getting our police clearances this week.  Our medicals are on Wednesday.  Our references are  writing their letters and I’ve collected the rest of our papers.  As soon as we get our police reports we will have our interview.

    I think that’s terrific news! Congratulations!

    As for the reactions of your family, only you and your husband know how big your family should be. Nobody else. I’m sure they’ll come around when they see your new little one. Good luck with everything!
