It has been a long time since we’ve been able to write something. So an update is well overdue. We’ve been busy around the house (redecorated the garden), with the baby nursery and everything that’s needed for that.
Like clothes from my brother. They were going to clean up and wanted to give it to us, they’re looking forward to a new addition to the family. More emotional for us are the toys we received from our nieces. They would love a niece or nephew and want to share their toys.
We also have been busy and the baby nursery which we think is currently completely ready. The mural is completely finished with one small exception. We want to stay open about the adoption from the start. We would like to make the mural of the place of birth of your child a point with an arrow pointing towards our country. So that the little one knows from the beginning, that it also has a mother in the USA.
We have been on holiday to Greece to make new memories. We would love to bring a child with us to have fun in the beautiful blue seas of Greece. We have been to the isle of Rhodes for a week to enjoy the nice weather and food. We learned a lot about the Greek culture and visited a monastery on an island nearby named Symi. Our goal however was to relax, take a break from our lives and look back at the now 7 years we are trying to expand our family.We came to the conclusion that although the adoption process is hard on everyone involved, we think the path we took is the best.
