Blogging Our Adoption Journey!

Our agency just started a blog called Adoption Threads. The blog is featuring news for waiting families and articles about ways that waiting families can network in their journey to adopt. Our caseworker had asked me a few weeks ago if I could write a short article about why I started blogging and about how it has been helpful as we moved from infertility procedures to adoption. I said yes right away! If you click on the link above, it will take you to what I wrote. You can also check out the rest of the blog. It can contains info such as agency news and updates, how the waiting can be difficult, and handling difficult days (such as holidays.) I think it's great that AAI created the blog. Everyone in the adoption process can use some extra support!

We're adopting through AAI, too, but I didn't know about the blog. Very cool!

It's something really new...I think they've only had it online for a couple weeks.

Great article, Wendy. I am so proud of you! I'm guessing they picked you to write one of their first posts as they have enjoyed reading your blog as much as the rest of us have.

I'm glad you can look back and see how far you have come. I know I'd be lost without you.

I'm still working on a marathon email to you. Get ready for a book. (-;

What e great article! I think it is awesome that your agency is encouraging families to connect with others through the web. I think many people are hesitant, for whatever reason, to join a support group in person, but this allows them to get support without having to attend meetings. I hope this takes off for them and proves to be a big help for them.

That's a great posting you did on the adoption blog. I continue to pray that your wait isn't much longer.

Congrats on your upcoming adoption! My husband & I got our approval in January, so it's been 6 months of waiting for us too. We live in Reseda, CA and have chosen domestic adoption also. Our agency is Vista Del Mar. I got your blog off the Adoptive Families group off of Facebook. So glad I did. It's comforting to read others in the same situation. It's an emotional roller coaster but will be SO worth it when we hold our little baby!!

I'm 43 years and have had 3 miscarriages. Such painful things to go through. We are so excited about our adoption though!!

I would love for you to read our blog also.


Please let's keep in touch. I'm here if you ever need to talk.

I'm trying to start a support group for adoptive parents in my area. If you have any other ideas or suggestions keep them coming!

is my email and find me on Facebook
