Tick Tocking

Did you know I once wanted to be a preschool teacher? I got out of high school and that wasn’t the only thing I wanted to do. I don’t think I even spent an actual full year before I told myself teaching wasn’t for me. So I majored in something else.

Guys! It’s here.

I want to shout it on the roof tops, even though I know nothing has happened yet. There are just so much emotions that are in me right now. I know that today’s interview will be a little difficult. But, I also know it is one step closer to holding my little one in my arms.

It’s been a rough week and I hope Licensor J has a kind heart.

I can’t believe it’s happening guys. God promised me a family. And we are one step closer to that blessing.

Please pray for favor for us!!! xoxo

Today you will open your eyes and sort through the feelings of the little ones you’ve lost, being unable to conceive, the feelings of inadequacy. I want you to know, my love, it is okay to feel.  Continue reading “Mama’s At Heart”

License to Parent

I’ve decided until a little one graces me with his or her presence I’d keep updating y’all every Fridays on what is going on. It has been an exciting week in regards to the foster to adopt process. Finally…I hope…every paper work they gave us to submit has been completed, signed and turned in. As if the paperwork wasn’t inquisitive in and of itself we now away the moment when we open are doors for the licensor to come in. Continue reading “License to Parent”
