Finished the Family Profile
What is a Family Profile you ask? Well it is 27 little questions that will match us with a birth mom... No big deal right? BIG FRIGGIN DEAL IS WHAT I SAY!!! I sat down at the computer at 1:00 and took a deep breath, spent some time in prayer and started writing. My sweet friends who have done this before told me not to "sweat the small stuff". I could drive myself crazy wondering how to phrase something or thinking about what a birth mom might want to see. So I just wrote. 27 questions some 3500 words and 4 hours later I am finished. Sigh of relief anyone? Sort of... This means that I now have 2 more steps to complete before we can being sending out our profile. One is glorious because I have no control over it- certification from the state! I know, those of you who know me well say. "did she just say glorious and out of my control in one sentence"? Yes, I did... Adoption is changing me... And truly I HAVE NO CONTROL (even if I wanted to). We just wait for that to come in the mail! Second is pictures... Molly, you say, seriously? You could find the 80-100 pictures you need between your two blogs! Although think about it, do I want a birth mom reading my "mother of the year monday" posts? I don't think so! Do I want her to see the pics of Andrew's mess (chocolate syrup, flour, eggs and fish oil ring a bell)? Not a chance!!! I do have 132 pics put together with our shiniest smiles and our neatest hair. Here comes the but... BUT I do not have any pics of Bill and I together (since our Wedding in 2001) YIKES!!! Let me tell you I am SUPER excited to go have a photo shoot-BOOO!!! I love my husband for sure, but I am not looking forward to a few hours of getting our pics taken hoping we get 30-40 good ones (yes, that's how many they want of us). Okay, bright side Molly! You will get to spend 2 kid free hours with your husband gazing into each other's eyes. Yea, I'll let you know how it goes!
