Isolating and adopting
We always wanted two kids, but life didn’t stop — or even slow down — when it didn’t happen. We were so busy enjoying parenting and our magic girl that it wasn’t something that hung over us.
It was really her that turned us on this path, which we started more than a year ago. Her innate need to have a brother or sister. Someone to love and care for and spoil. It solidified what we already knew in our own hearts. She wants it as much as we do.
While we are in this weird time of social isolation — no school, swim lessons, soccer season and especially play dates — I think we all feel it the most. That need to finally find our missing piece. To find you, the birth mom, and ultimately this cherished child.
Until then, we carry on our happy life. We thank our blessings, including having so much time together. We enjoy our very simple, stripped down routine and live for our daily walks in our neighborhood — fairy wings optional.
Wishing whoever reads this some peace in this weird time as well.
