I’ve been a bad blogger. Work has been crazy with training and projects and home has been busy with family visiting and then getting ready for E’s parties this weekend.
He’s turning 2! Tomorrow! How crazy and amazing is that?
The Rainbow Families Conference went well. We were getting some pressure from folks about adopting again. It’s interesting that doctors, social workers and such are pushing us. This is a good thing, I think. I had to warn my friend at the agency not to send any pictures of waiting kids. I know I’d crumble.
Guatemala is a question mark still. I sense they are trying to comply with the Hague Convention but the deadline is looming. In 2006 there were 5,024 adoption cases in Guatemala and of that number 4,757 went to the US. That’s a staggering number. I hope they get their procedures worked out and that placements can continue.
E is incredible. He’s becoming this person with wants and needs and a sense of humor. He makes jokes now, trying to get us to laugh at silly things or laughing along. At the conference I tried to explain to a parent-to-be how becoming a Dad is like watching your life explode and then the pieces come back together in this wonderful new way and the puzzle is even bigger than you imagined.
Wrapping presents tonight, getting ready for the big day!
