It's official! Our house is on the market and we already have a showing scheduled for Friday! Of course, we realize this could take awhile so we are not getting too excited, yet. We spent the entire weekend cleaning, organizing, and decluttering. My parents were a TREMENDOUS help! Our house looks amazing thanks to them! Now we just need to figure out how to maintain our clean and organized house with a wild two year old who enjoys destroying the house in under 2 minutes. So, we busted our hineys over the weekend and now we wait......

Adoption news...or really, lack of news. We are currently reevaluating our choice of agency. We have not been getting the warm fuzzies from them and we also received some negative feedback from someone on an adoption forum. Granted, that is one person's experience, but we have already been starting to feel a little uneasy about our choice. So, we're thinking our gut feeling may be pointing us in another direction. This feels all too familiar because this is exactly how pea's adoption journey started. And, it worked out perfectly. So, we are going to be calling a couple of the other agencies that were on our initial list and then make a decision. And so it begins!

yay. congrats on getting the house on the market. I remember when I did that 6 years ago. it's not as bad as we worry it up to be. and regarding the agency, sounds like you are going with your intuition and that is always the right way to go in feelings of the heart.

Good luck with your house!

And I'm sorry about how you feel about the adoption agency. Definitely go with your gut though, it's never wrong. I see what you mean though, I felt uneasy about both our adoptions at first. I think it's just the unknown. A lot of help I am, huh?

Yay! Congrats!!

Hmmm, it makes me wonder if your baby is going to be found through another agency! I think God leads us in different directions to get us to where we need to be. Praying for you guys!

Good luck on selling your house!

I would totally follow your gut on agencies and take your time. I've been a big advocate of waiting for the most ethical agency since we went though ours (and watched friends who didn't wait for the right agency). It seems to be a possible night and day difference with a lot at stake! Can't wait to see Pea's sibling!!

Sounds like you are making a good choice in the agency search.

Good luck w/the house on the market w/ a wild 2 year old. I have been doing it for almost a year and it's not easy!!!

Keep us posted!!
