So this is the first post of many on this awesome journey. I am starting this blog so I can have a journal of the ups and downs of our adoption to hopefully share with my child one day.
First I will start out with the logistics. We are Kristy and Varunan and we have been married for 5 years. WE have both felt the pull to be parents most all our lives, but due to medical conditions we have been unable to have a biological child. We fostered 2 children for 10 and a half months, and we will never forget that amazing experience and those two beautiful children. But now we feel it is our time to get a baby we will keep forever.
We have been doing research for awhile now and we have chosen an agency. We have secured our finances and we feel emotionally ready. We are about to begin the home study which we hope to complete by the new year.
If all goes well we should be on the "waiting families" list by the beginning of next year, and then it is all in the hands of the expectant mothers. I hope that you all will help us in this journey, especially once we do get on that list since that will be the hardest part because there will be nothing for us to do except wait. And wait and wait.
Thank you for reading,
Kristy and Varunan
