Meeting Him, Part II

Part I … We rounded the corner, and there he was.  He was sitting in a baby walker looking out the glass patio door at a cat sitting in the backyard, exactly like a video of him that I have watched a thousand times.  He heard us approaching and curiously turned to look at us, unaware […]

Meeting Him, Part I

We woke up yesterday expecting it to be a fairly unremarkable day.  Our attorney (Anna) was picking us up to take us the the adoption center, to sign something or talk to someone (fun fact: you rarely know what the heck is going on in adoption).  We wore our nice clothes anyway, partially because we […]

Our Wroclaw Apartment!

Hello from Poland! We have finally made it to Poland, and are wrapping up our second full day in this awesome country.  Hopefully in the next day or so I will have a chance to share updates about our experiences so far, but for now I wanted to share a quick peek inside our apartment! […]

Adoption Travel Medical/First Aid Kit

So, this post is mostly going to serve as a non-mental note for packing for future adoption trips, because let’s be real – ain’t nobody in this house going to remember minute details about packing more than about a week from now, so mental notes cannot be counted upon.  Maybe someone else about to travel […]


Many months ago, I asked Alex: “What are you most looking forward to?” I was talking about in terms of our adoption, but that didn’t need to be said.  Alex’s answer was immediate and adorable. “Snuggles.” He went on to describe snuggling Baby W late at night in the rocking chair in his room, or […]

The Very Best Day

I’m laughing already as I write this, because I can’t think of another time that we shared two posts in one day.  Not only that, but they are going to be about as night and day different as possible. Here’s what happened on The Very Best Day. I had literally just posted this post from […]

The Last Two Days: High to Low …

We decided to chronicle our adoption experience in blog-form because 1) we wanted a record of it, 2) writing is how I process all The Feelings, 3) we wanted to honestly portray an adoption experience for anyone else considering or pursing adoption.  I am so glad we chose to do it!  It has been more […]

Updates & Prayer Requests

Update: The good news is that the document we have been waiting on from the Embassy in Warsaw (the Article 5) is finished. The bad news is that we haven’t gotten it yet because our attorney, bless her heart, fell off a ladder and broke her nose and got pretty banged up. Needless to say, […]

Fun Facts

I have always found the study of other cultures to be fascinating, and have thoroughly enjoyed studying the Polish culture.  I decided to make a list of some of my favorite fun facts from the books I have been reading on Polish culture, and thought I would share it on here for anyone who is […]

Poland: Baby W’s Heritage

For the past year, we have been referring to the location of our adoption as “Eastern Europe” and have been intentionally vague about the specific country for matters of privacy related to adoption regulations.  However, now that we have our approval and are preparing to travel, we are excited to share with you about the […]
