Dear Birth Parent


So the update is....YES! This is the ideal agency for us. We felt extremely comfortable and are super excited to be turning in our application later this week. They asked us to start working on a scrapbook and "dear birth parent" letter that they will present to each birth family that we match....I don't even know where to begin...my heart is flooded with emotions and run-on sentences, oh and 8 years worth of photos. I'm just trying to sort through it all.


Hobby Lobby is having an amazing sale on all their scrapbook supplies....which this time, I didn't hesitate to buy the album I've been coveting for the past year, with no real excuse to buy it...until now...it's beautiful....black and aqua damask...


So now I'm happily looking through all our photos on our computer...remembering when Jude was born....the stories....trips...experiences...and thinking that someday...hopefully soon....my son or daughter's birthmother will be holding this album...turning the pages...seeing just a glimpse into our lives....... and choosing us.

Wow, that is seriously amazing. I am so happy for you! That is such a great idea for the agency to have you make a scrapbook and I'm sure you will do a wonderful job. It seems like they are very concentrated on making it a personal experience rather than the mystery it is for many people. Definately post some pictures of your book in the making- I'd love to see what you come up with. :D

Once again, congrats and I wish you the best!
