I have been offline for a bit and wanted to touch base so you know I haven't left the planet :) I am planning on adopting a teenager and am going through the stages for that. As you can imagine, it is not without its hiccups, but hopefully I will be welcoming someone into my home by early August. As a mother to a 31-year old daughter, and having gone through the teen years with her, I know there will be bumps along the way, but I am looking forward to the challenge. Teenagers are probably the last age group people look to adopt, but everyone needs a forever family and I wanted to provide some stability to a young lady before she goes out into the world. As a single mom I thought that was something I could handle.
Have a great summer everyone and I will keep you posted on the final outcome of this adventure and how it is all working out in the office with finding a replacement for me while I go on adoption leave and training my new assistant when she arrives in September. The fun just never stops...
