My Individual Session Today...

I have my two hour meeting with E. today. Yay! I am so excited and flipping nervous! It is just because she is making sure I am adopting for the right reasons. I am. I am adopting because I hate being pregnant and I want more children. I don't want babies because well I like older kids they do more stuff. I can communicate and listen to them. I can home school them and teach them how to be amazing adults and love the world. Encourage their likes and show them new stuff. Go camping, hiking, teaching dog agility. Everything. I want to give them everything and June too. I want to give them my entire heart and understand it may take some time for them to give it to me but that is fine. It will happen and I already have the love for them even if I don't know it.

I am ready for some more kids, or even another kid which ever fits our more but honestly. I don't care if they fit, we are an evolving family and handle it.

Gonna go start my stew now........

Karma and God Are On My Side

You know I have always been more than willing to help people out, let people with less groceries go in front of me in line, let people into traffic etc... Well today it paid off, but a back story is needed to let you all understand....

Saturday Jon and I decided to buy a lawn mower even though we really shouldn't but it was decided it was a mother's day gift. Well we got it home and decided to try it out, well it was broken. We call Walmart and they said we could come in and just switch it for a working model. We decided we'd just do it on Mother's day.

Sunday morning we go out and it is stolen. I was so sad and pissed. I mean come one we have been through so much crap! So we called and made a report to the county sheriff's office and that is we could do.

Monday called our insurance company and it wasn't enough to meet our deductible. So I post an ad on craigslist to ask if anyone had any information regarding my poor broken lawn mower.

Tuesday nothing....

Wednesday I get an e-mail and it is from the Owner of Action Mowers on Main St. in Springfield Oregon. Turns out the guys who stole it brought it to her and she had them take it back to walmart for one that works. So Walmart exchanges for the next model up because they are out of the original lawn mower takes the guys ID and and bring it back to Action Mowers. She gets the new better lawn mower from them then sees my ad on CL.

So now I know who at least one of the guys are and damn straight I am pressing charges and testifying against them......

So I get a brand new better mower and I get to serve justice to the jerks who did it!

So if you need a new Lawn Mower support an honest small business here is Springfield!

Home Sudy Visit #2 on Thursday!

I have my one on one two hour meeting with the adoption worker on Thursday @ 2pm. To talk more intensely about Jon and I and our intentions/motivations about adopting kiddos. I am super excited. Our adoption worker is e-mailing us a safety guide so we can go through and and "adoption/foster" proof the house. I know we need another smoke detector because we need one in every room where a child sleeps. We will see what else we need to do as well. Hopefully I can do most if not all of it before Thursday.

So Our First Home Study Visit is over.

It wasn't that bad I was so worried and all. Our worker is really nice and all but thinks we are nuts for wanting 3 kids older than June. But was pleased to hear that we had completed all but 2 or 3 of the classes before we were even pregnant with Casey in fact most of them I was pregnant with Juniper.

So I meet with her individually next Thursday then Jon meets with her individually on the 19th.

It is exciting to start!

So Our Home Study Adventure

Starts on Thursday @ 4pm! Our adoption worker will from here on out be referred to simply as E. and from the sound of her voice and attitude E. seems like a fantastic worker to work with. Very punctual and with it. I am so excited to start this journey. To describe the feeling going on in my soul and body is that we just found out we are expecting. Though we don't know the sex, age or anything else yet of our soon to be children. There is an extreme amount of joy, anticipation, nervousness and just gleefulness.

So there is a great update for you all.
