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 […]

Hello, stranger. Thank you for raising my son.

In addition to keeping friends and family up to date on our adoption process, this blog is also serving as a sort of digital scrapbook for us to look back on and remember our journey.  FYI: this particular post falls more in the category of the latter. When we found out that Baby W was […]


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 […]

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 […]

Imaginary Espresso

In the middle of last week, I called our immigration officer to make sure she had received our paperwork in the mail.  It was still early – we had only sent it two weeks prior to that, and had heard it was originally sent to the wrong office and had floated around for a while […]

Look what came in the mail …

    Our immigration approval!!! Guys, this is big stuff.  Getting this approval was the last obstacle to overcome before traveling.  This week the details should start falling in to place for us to get on that plane!  Please pray for these final steps to go smoothly!!   Baby W … here we come!  

Fundraising Friday

Hey, Friends! Perhaps you noticed from our progress bar over on the left side of the page that we are incredibly close to meeting our fundraising goal!  Our adoption costs will total to about $25,000 and at the time I am writing this post, we have raised $23,176.  That means we only have $1,824 left […]
