200! It's like "300" only without the sweaty gladiators with painted on abs...
Over the last few weeks I've been contacted by two lesbian couples who stumbled upon the blog while searching out information on agencies that could assist them in adopting a baby. One couple is in Queen Creek Arizona about 15 or so miles from us, and the other is in Wisconsin. We're actually becoming good friends with our AZ neighbors and had them over for brunch last weekend. Unfortunately we were out of the traditional lesbian staples of Grape Nuts and pork rinds, but they seemed to enjoy Gregg's waffles and eggs anyway.
This week another blog friend, Michelle and Nick from Michelle's Path, are awaiting the birth of their soon to be adopted son, half brother to their cute little girl Kayla who they adopted in 2008. The girls over at Baby Blueprint are finally pregnant, and some of our other blog friends are dealing with new contacts or TTC challenges.
I guess what I wanted to post today is that this blog started almost two years ago when we made the decision to begin our adoption not having any idea what to expect or anyone to turn to for advice. We felt pretty alone, and it was scary at the beginning.
Now here we are on Those Two Daddies 200th post and we've come full circle. We're about to finalize the adoption of a little girl who completely owns our hearts; feeling a love I never ever thought possible, love so strong just thinking about her brings a tear to my eye. We're part of a circle of friends and families that share the bond of having children, trying to have them in a multitude of ways, or just thinking about it and deciding to make the leap. Somehow we know what we're doing (or fake it well; half the stuff we did we made up as we went along!) and it's our turn to help others. I'm so glad for everyone that has shared comments and posts with us and who actually read the drivel I've posted the other 199 times. Some of you even came back after reading a post and didn't leave shaking your head over bad jokes. Glad to know you all, and glad to be part of the circle. You guys rock!
