Adoption, Our Story and the Wait

There’s been a few unpublished versions of this post. Many starting paragraphs keyed in and deleted. An adoption story begun, and then abandoned. A draft waiting for it’s turn. I know this isn’t the usual fun DIY, but I ask you to bear with me. Our Story I never really knew how to begin. Our […]
