I’ve been procrastinating on starting this blog of my process. In fact, with the slow death of LiveJournal, I’ve failed to write about my adoption process at all, so for a while, I’m going to be playing catch-up, which I know can be boring, but look at it this way: you’re going to get compressed information without having to wait for it to be dolled out piece by piece, Hooray! So, before I go backwards, let me just quickly sum up where I am today:
- Officially matched with a birthmother. I’m going to refer to her as BMA for now, and avoid giving identifying information until I’ve discussed privacy with her directly.
- BMA is due to deliver in mid-November. More lead time than I anticipated, but wow, four months.
- I am going to visit BMA and her family next week.
- I’m trying not to jinx things by doing too much preparation, but I am crafting like a mofo.
So welcome, and hopefully I’ll be able to integrate back information with new developments as they rush rush rush down the pike.
