New Ventures!

Almost two years ago in May of 2013, Alex and I made the decision to begin deciding about the adoption process (this is how two Type A people make plans).  We knew it was something we definitely wanted to do – adoption had been on both our hearts since we were children.  The tricky part […]

Being Home: Is there anything we need?

How was the trip home? What is it like being home as a family of three? How is Elliott adjusting? How are you adjusting? How is attachment going? Is there anything you need? As time allows, I will answer these questions and just post them as they are completed (click links above for previous posts). […]

Being Home: Elliott’s Adjustment

How was the trip home? What is it like being home as a family of three? How is Elliott adjusting? How are you adjusting? How is attachment going? Is there anything you need? As time allows this week, I will answer these questions and just post them as they are completed (click links above for […]

Being Home: The Trip

How was the trip home? What is it like being home as a family of three? How is Elliott adjusting? How are you adjusting? How is attachment going? Is there anything you need? These are questions we are asked on a daily basis, and questions I have been dying to answer here on our blog! […]

OKNO ŻYCIA: The Baby Drop Box Next Door

Yesterday Alex left to to return home to the U.S., and rather than sit home and be bummed about it, Elliott and I spent the afternoon out and about.  We took a tram trip to a big mall on the north side of the city and spent a couple hours browsing around and having lunch […]

An Orphan No More: Elliott’s Gotcha Day!

“Come and see what our God has done, what awesome miracles He performs for His people!” Psalm 66:5   Every day for the last 605 days, a sweet little boy fell asleep at night labeled as an orphan.  Last night, that little boy may have gone to bed an orphan, but he woke up a son. […]

A Typical Day In Poland

7:00 – Good morning!  Elliott usually sleeps about ten hours to the minute, and is almost always up between 7:00-7:15 regardless of what kind of night we’ve had.  Hopefully we have had no night terrors in the night and are all feeling well-rested.  No matter how Elliott slept (or didn’t sleep) he always wakes up […]

Court Day

On Friday, January 9th, we woke up early.  We had managed to trick Elliott into going to bed an hour early so he would wake up naturally in time for us to leave.  It was Court Day! In some ways, it felt like just yesterday that my phone rang with the news that January 9th […]

A Chance to Live

Yesterday, while I was waiting for the sad little stovetop in our apartment to boil water for broccoli, Alex called me into the living room to see Elliott crawl for the first time. Now, at nineteen months old, it wouldn’t be unreasonable to expect a toddler to crawling … or walking … or climbing up […]

The First Week: A Timeline in Facebook Posts

Our first full week with Baby W was spent living with his foster family.  It was a truly life-changing experience that we will treasure forever!  The only downside was that we were so busy spending time with them and bonding as a family, we didn’t have much time left for updating the blog.  This past […]
