September ICLW

Hi, and welcome to my blog, newcomers and regular readers both :)

This is only my second time doing ICLW.  My first time was in July, and I really liked it.  If you have no idea what I'm talking about, click here.

So this is the spot where I give a synopsis of our journey.  But I don't know what to write.  Because I still haven't decided what I do and do not feel comfortable sharing.  (I should clarify:  I am, for the most part, comfortable sharing my complete story with those I don't personally know, but a lot more uncomfortable sharing with those I could easily run into the next time I'm in the grocery store or at a family gathering!)

I will say this:  There are a number of significant reasons that have come together concluding in the result of us ADOPTING!

We are not approved yet and are still in the stage of getting paperwork ready and finding money.

Feel free to click around and read more.  Thanks so much for stopping by!!


  1. I found the same thing. I think it was hard for me to share w those I knew personally because I was figuring out what to share and what not to share. W strangers you share something, regret it, but then you just decide not to share that piece of info again. W a person you know, once you have shared it... You can't unshare it.

  2. Congratulations on your decision. How exciting.

  3. Hello from ICLW! Best of luck to you on your adoption journey!

  4. I found your blog through ICLW, though I forgot to sign up for it this month. I really hope that soon you'll be holding your adopted child in your arms.

  5. Hi from ICLW!! Love your testimony tab ;)

  6. Hi from ICLW. Good luck on your adoption journey :)

  7. Hi from ICLW...I know about being private...I feel so much freedom in how I can express myself on my blog rather than in person with people.

    1. Yeah, I think I am starting to regret letting every friend and relative know about my blog! I wish I had been a little more choosy in whom I let know about it. Ah well, live and learn! But on the other hand, I never know which close friend or relative might actually be needing to hear exactly what I've written...maybe, right?

  8. Visiting from ICLW. Wishing you the best in your adoption journey. Hopefully some people will forget about your blog so that you can get more personal. I haven't told anyone IRL about my blog and it allows me to be much more open about everything.


Comments are like little gifts! :)
