Musings of a Marfan Mom



Yesterday afternoon I got the email we’ve been waiting almost 6 months for: our agency has approved us for adoption! This means that our profile has gone live on our agency’s website and is now viewable by expectant mothers/couples. From here on out, we’re just waiting. A match and subsequent adoption could take a week, 5 years, or never happen…every situation is different.

While we wait, we’re trying to spread the word of our hope to adopt. We would love it if you would help us! Mark and I have created an adoption website: Hoping to Adopt. Thanks to Ruth from The Pearl in the Oyster (Corbin’s Story) for designing our header! Please share our website. Also, if you feel so inclined, you’ll see a button on the right hand side of this page with our family picture on it…we’d love if you’d put it on your blog!

Thank you so much! If you have any questions for us, as always, just leave a comment or shoot me an email. We are so grateful for the support we’ve felt during the last 6 months as we’ve hoped for this day…the start to the second leg of our adoption journey. :-)
