Adoption

We went shopping!

And it was FUN!

We bought awesome toys and a ton of books! We even found some really great gender-neutral bedding that we love. (only the bedding, not the whole set)

We also picked up some awesome bath toys, as we want to teach our LO to enjoy the bath, although it will take time.

It was a fun day!

    I'm a dance studio owner, writer, cat mommy, and adventuress who is married to the man of her dreams. My husband and I have had a long-time dream to adopt and it's happening in a way that we didn't quite anticipate. But, like any move of God, it's turning out way better than we expected. We'd love for you to follow our story at www.kirstenkline.com!
  • Thanks everyone! We had so much fun!

  • If you ever need to talk about water trauma and what we did to overcome it (well in terms of bath time - we haven't tried swimming yet), let me know. 

     

    And cute bedding!

  • Fun!
    Married on 3.20.2004. It took 30 month, 2 failed adoptions and IVF for our first miracle. We have had 9 foster kids since he was born and started the domestic adoption process when he was 10 month old, we had 4 failed matches in that time. After our daughter was born we brought her home and spent 2 weeks fearing we might lose her because of complications that came up. But Praise God all went through and she is ours forever!
