Enough with the bad news already.
It seems every time I turn on the news recently there is a story of an adoption gone wrong.
There is a reason it is news:
Because it is rare.
Lots of people adopt every year and there isn’t one news story on all the families made complete through the process.
Except for this one.
Please take a minute to read it.
The author’s name is Eric Weiner. He is a former reporter for NPR and author of The Geography of Bliss: One Grump’s Search for the Happiest Places in the World.
I think he’s got it right.
The latest on our adoption?
We are in the process of renewing all of our paperwork which included a recent visit with our social worker. She came by the house on Sunday for a check in. It was lovely to see her. We’re lucky. We really like our social worker.
The best part?
We are one step closer to becoming parents.

I am so glad you are one step closer! I’ve watched a new friend go through the adoption process this year. I think they are close to their happy ending as well. It will be lovely to witness.
@elizabeth – thank you. i’m so looking forward to meeting our kiddo.
So exciting! Saying a prayer for you and your family.
@eastsacmom – thanks! we are looking forward to it. can’t wait for our kiddo to be home with us.
His story with its happy ending and your ongoing story are beautiful. I think I speak for any of your friends and or readers when I say I feel so privileged that you are sharing this journey with us. I can’t wait until you’re at the end… when of course it will only be the beginning!
