Changing weather

We received our first profile.  It was a very exciting time for us (me especially).  It really continues to amaze me - how quickly this whole process can happen.  

We read through it multiple times and discussed a lot.  We had conversations and meetings.  We took the whole weekend to decide how we were going to proceed.  When it came down to it, this profile just didn't seem perfect for us.  We will patiently await other profiles.  I really didn't think the first profile would be "the one" anyway.  

On a side note, I am having a real itch to be pregnant again!  It must be the time of year.  The smell in the air.  Trying to not let this cloud my judgement.  I am so thankful to have Phil by my side - helping me along.

A second side note.  Next spring, I am going to plant pumpkins.  Once October hits, I'm going to have a fall festival with all the neighbor kids.  I'm going to bake cupcake pies, there will be games, we will make caramel apples, and the kids will each get to pick a pumpkin from the garden and bring it home to carve.

It's always been a dream of mine to own a pumpkin patch - who says it can't be in a city backyard?!

It's kind of funny how things work.  Phil and I have been talking about this process for nearly two years.  I started my blog a couple months ago and showed it to people who were interested in reading about my life.  

Today.  Today of all days.  I decided today would be a good day to make it public.  To post it on social media.  To let all people read about this personal experience that our family is going through.

Today I received my first profile.  A profile to look through.  To look through to see if I would be interested in carrying someone's baby. 

Today I am excited.  Excited to go home and talk to Phil.  Excited to leave the profile with him while I'm at a meeting at church.  Excited to hear his thoughts when I get home.


"All we need..."

I got an email this morning saying the agency has all they need.  Now, I continue to wait to be matched - I know the perfect Intended Parents are out there for me.  I'm feeling excited!
