Fresh Hope ...

Some of you will already know this but I want to give an update of where our adoption journey is leading now … As all of you know wait times for China have grown out of control and the uncertainty is very frustrating (to say the least).

Last night Larry & I attended the first night of PRIDE (Parenting Resources Information Development Education) training. We are participating in these sessions because we have made the decision to peruse domestic adoption while we wait for our little one from China. This was a tough decision but we feel that it is the right choice for us at this point in our lives. Regardless of the outcome, this training will be very valuable in the future for us as parents to our child or children … whatever the plan may be. We have many sessions of the PRIDE training to come over the next couple months and look forward to learning together.


DISCLAIMER:
THIS IN NO WAY MEANS WE ARE GIVING UP ON OUR ADOPTION FROM CHINA.




When Larry and I got home last night from the training session, I stepped out of the car guess what I heard ... SPRING PEEPERS!! What a wonderful sign of spring! We have been having some spring like weather finally and tomorrow is supposed to be another nice day.




I woke up this morning with a sore throat, achy ears, nagging cough and a headache. I hope I am feeling good enough to go for a nice long walk after work tomorrow that always makes me feel better.

We did PRIDE almost a year ago. We had to do it for our China adoption. It's not too bad, I actually enjoyed parts of it.
Remember everyday your another day closer to your child where ever they may be.
Hope your feeling better soon.
