Greetings!

We designed this site in order to keep in touch with friends and family who are far away and in order to communicate with other adoptive families from around the world.

When we first started researching this wonderful way to become a family we read everything we could get our hands on. Even though there are a lot of great books out there, nothing was as informative or touching as the blogs we found by adoptees, biological parents, and adoptive families. So we are writing this blog now in hopes of returning the favor. We hope that if you are dear to us you will enjoy keeping up with our adventures. If you are someone out there involved in a part of the adoption triad we hope you will find information and comfort here and provide us with some of your own!

If you would like to get in touch with us we can be reached at: becomingafamily@gmail.com
Feel free to stop by anytime. We're happy to share our family story.

Take care,
Brian and Rosemary

More pictures

We're back in Bangkok after a long weekend in cool (relatively) north of Thailand with our friends at House of Grace. It was very nice to be out of Bangkok for a few days, and Button loved being surrounded by kids and loving Thai people. Of course, I'm not posting those pictures right now (too frazzled to make cogent blog postings!) Here are some pictures from our DSDW meeting and our day at the zoo. Quick paperwork update for those who have known that we've been having problems: we have our visa interview tomorrow morning at the US embassy, and will hopefully be leaving Thailand Thursday night. Not too bad! More soon.

Look at all those beautifully happy faces! I hope your feeling better and your visa issues are resolved soon. Good luck!

Looks like some of the same ladies we had during our interview. We didn't think to take a picture of them. We also visited that zoo when it was about 100 degrees. Wish we could have spent more time in the Northeast. Glad you can visit the House of Grace. I hope you are all feeling better. Sorry to hear that you had some problems about the visa. At least you didn't break our record of being in Bangkok for a little over a month.

My most salient memories of the zoo were of being drenched in sweat (it was about 100 degrees the day we went, too), but Lily loved it! It's a great little day visit to keep little ones busy!
