Well, this weekend resulted in a delightful conversation (not a "discussion") about the adoption. After eating a few "waffles" I found that we are on the same page. Actually, I think we both gave a little in order to be on the same page. But isn't that what a relationship, marriage, and even parenting is about? Giving an inch to find a common ground.

As asked by P., I did some research and found a bandaid. We can get "convenience checks" from our credit card.. at the same APR as a credit card purchase.. in case the adoption moves quickly. It isn't the ideal solution to fund an adoption, but it is a temporary solution. And that is all we really need.

So, we agreed that after the holidays will submit our formal application for adoption and begin the homestudy process. It's an exciting new adventure.. that will result in the ultimate goal... being parents.


  1. This is awesome! The decision was one of the biggest we've ever come to together. And there has not been a moment that we've looked back.

    Congrats and I look forward to hearing about your process!

  2. Thanks Nicole.. the finances can be difficult, but it is one "hurdle" that we are willing to overcome. :D
