I have created a blog that is dedicated to our adoption profile, that should be a good start. If you read my blog very often, you may have noticed my new addition in the side columns.. You can now link to our LDS Family Services profile, and to our Adoption Blog from here. I spent quite a bit of time on our adoption blog actually, I'm quite pleased with the final product. :o) If you have a few minutes, you should definitely check it out. I also created a FB page for our adoption called Tim n Leah Adopt, so be sure to send me a friend request! And Pass Along Cards... yep, I ordered them. And it felt weird. Like business cards? Well, let's think about this objectively. I'll try to put aside the fact that I'm ordering "marketing materials" for my adoption and think about it logically. Whoever thought of the pass along card idea is a bloody genius, really. Let's say I'm a senior in a high school; I get pregnant and decide to place my child for adoption. If my teacher tells me about some person she knows who is trying to adopt, dont you think I'm more likely to consider that, then some stranger from a website profile? It's like creating a bunch of little personal reference letters. Well...maybe not quite like that... But the point is - even though I think it feels weird to order them for yourself, I totally get the objective. And if we're lucky, maybe ours will reach someone who uses it.
So we're on the list... and now we wait. Anybody have any ideas? Tips? Maybe you know someone who has done all this before and found something particuarly helpful? I'm totally not above spreading myself around to help our chances of getting placed. Hee hee, that's terrible. But you know what? We're not getting any younger!! Well, in any case - we're just so grateful to finally be officially in the running. From here on out, we can take it on faith and know that when the time is right, we will be chosen. It feels great. :o)
