Every minute things get a little more real! I bought a dresser for the boys' room, got all the car seats in the vehicle, and am working through the rest of the garden harvest to get it into the freezer for when the boys are here! Today the kiddos and I will take pictures of our home and around town to make photo books for the boys to look through as they are waiting to relocate with us. We are still working through the full transition plan, but will be meeting them this weekend!!!
Today these got delivered in the mail!!
After we switched to the adoption-from-foster-care path back in March, I had the idea to write a book for the children we would adopt. I knew we would make a photo book, but wanted more of a story book that showed how our family grew through the years to include them. In a conference I had attended in April called Empowered to Connect, they had mentioned the importance of families "sticking together" and I immediately thought of the phrase "Birds of a feather flock together". And so, with the help of clip art from Etsy, this book was created. When we heard about the boys, I added their names and pictures to the book so that as they read through it, they would see themselves, and what kid wouldn't love that!! The night we found out we had been chosen, I placed an order of 4 books (one for each boy and one for the house) and I am so excited to have them now in hand!!
