Waiting for baby

notebookWe’ve been paper pregnant for 10 months. Just check out how big our home study / adoption notebook is growing! Every step of the way we’ve learned so much about adoption, parenting, and patience. Everyone always talks about how you’re never really ready to become a parent. Maybe I’ll feel differently when we’ve matched and we have a little one on the way, but frankly I think we’ve never felt more ready to become parents! Every day we wait and hope. ‪#‎hopingtoadopt‬ ‪#‎danandalissaadopt‬ ‪#‎adoption‬‪#‎openadoption‬ ‪#‎lovemakesafamily‬


QuoteWhen I was a little girl, I use to tell my mom that I was going to adopt a baby someday. This is my path, and I think I’ve always known it. When Dan and I began researched open adoption, I felt such peace. We couldn’t be more excited to grow our family through open adoption.‪#‎danandalissaadopt‬ ‪#‎hopingtoadopt‬ ‪#‎openadoption‬ ‪#‎adoption‬

His or Her Family Tree

familytreeOur someday baby will have the most beautiful family tree. It will have roots, branches, trees that will grow near, and some that will intertwine. He or she will be loved fully by all because love is so much more than blood.‪#‎danandalissaadopt‬ ‪#‎adoption‬ ‪#‎openadoption‬ ‪#‎adoptionislove‬‪#‎hopingtoadopt‬ ‪#‎waitingfamily‬
