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:
Feel free to stop by anytime. We're happy to share our family story.

Take care,
Brian and Rosemary

Brain Cloud

Well, I have to admit I am having a hard time finding stuff to blog about lately. It's not that I don't have all sorts of deep (and shallow) thoughts about our adoption every hour of the day but in the last couple of weeks I just seem to be having a hard time expressing myself. I guess it's a combination of the moving stress (our house has been in boxes for weeks and I am working off the coffee table) and the upcoming June referrals.

Why does referral month always send me into such a tizzy? It is far too early for us to get a call so it's not that I'm going through the crazy tension of waiting for the phone to ring. I think it's more like being at a surprise party. You may be enjoying yourself chatting with the other guests but everyone knows the party hasn't really started until the guest of honor arrives. I just feel keyed up waiting to see how far we'll move up the line and who will get matched with their child and what wonderful families are going to be created!! I'm so excited for our fellow PAP's who I know are waiting for phone calls and I can't wait to hear their stories: DETAILS, GIRLS, DETAILS!!

So anyway, I guess I'll try to come up with some sort of real posting for this blog in the next couple of days but for now I seem to have some sort of summer heat/referral month/moving induced brain cloud. Be patient with me.

Rosemary this is a very exciting time. Do you know if perchance you might be included? Are you with the regular program or are you going through the SN route for Twaiwan?

I'm right there with ya on the brain cloud!! Hopefully it will clear up soon and give way to beautiful rays of sunshine!

Referral month gets me keyed up too even though we're waiting for news for others. I figure nervous energy must be good for weight loss!

Isn't that funny??? I still feel that way. And I remember especially being OBSESSED with wanting more info when families were travelling... could hardly think about anything else. The surprise party analogy is right on! I actually checked my blog reader JUST to see if Chris and Terri had posted anything. : )
