Firstly, I wanted to say thank you to everyone who left lovely comments on the post about my children’s progress. Like I said, I don’t scrapbook and for quite a while I’ve wondered what to do with this blog, I’m still not sure where it will end up, but I’d like to use it to record some of the many joys we have as a family. Also, I don’t have many people to share my children’s lives with on a day to day basis, so it was lovely to read all your kind and encouraging comments! Thank you!
I have a post swirling around about our frugal and fun summer plans, but today I wanted to share a funny comment.
Adoption Social Worker: “So when are you ready to start the adoption process again?”
Me: Immense laughter
In all serious, I will adopt again. My heart is with children who are HIV+, children with medical needs who are waiting, children most would never open their arms to. Children who do not have a basic human right – a family. Yes, I’m not quite ready yet, more importantly, we’re not quite ready yet. The finances would need to be lifted, a lot. But maybe this is the goal I need to help me plan, keep joyful on this frugal journey and keep motivated towards saving. My mantra has always been that I wanted to choose to live simply, so others could simply live. This was a very tough year financially (adoption fees, alternative schooling, child-care) maybe next year saving will be more possible. Maybe. Of course, I need to fix my car first
