Smile for a While and Let's be Jolly

So here we are waiting for Finster's arrival. Or contact by his birth momma. Or something like that.

To me this is kind of a time of transition; a time when one journey ended (eww paperwork!) and another began. A comment was left on my last post by Jason, someone new to the blogosphere and the adoption world. He said he read my entire blog start to finish (poor bastard, but then again he lives in the South, so it's not like there's anything else to do...{Note to self: That's mean, better make sure to delete that comment before publishing this post.}) Jason and his partner Chad are just starting their trek to adoption and are using the same agency (IAC) that we are. It made me think back to March of last year when Gregg and I started out. We felt like we were the only ones doing this. And then I met all my blog friends, and my Gay Dad's Group friends, and other adopting / adopted already friends. I had so many questions and was so nervous about the process. But all the great support you guys all gave whether through comments or just by reading your adventures made me feel just that much better. And I feel like we're all going through different stages of the same kind of adventure together. Some are adopting, some are doing IVF, surrogacy is alive and well, Holly and Becky are into Abercrombie & Fitch (not sure what that has to do with babies but whatever) and some are adding siblings to already completed additions to their families. So I hope the story of our journey so far can lend some comfort to Jason and Chad as they begin their adoption adventure.

Jason started his blog yesterday, and I encourage all of you to pop over and give him some good words...I know it helped me! (Now wasn't there something I was supposed to delete? Oh well.)
