Matt here, again.
For some crazy reason 3 people asked me this week if we were going to adopt another kid. Two of three said, "isn't it about time for you and Angel to adopt another?" They were serious. It made me think about the last 5 years, really the last 6. We started considering adoption in 2002 when Angel had a miscarriage. We got pregnant with Hudson in April '02, and started interviewing agencies then. We also started the dreaded fundraising.
So, since 2002 until now we have either been preparing for an adoption, going to get a child, or bonding with the new child (granted, you never truly stop bonding).
No wonder co-workers who I've been working with over the last 6 years keep wondering when we are going to get our next child. I mean come one, aren't we all waiting to hear if Brad and Angelina are going to adopt or have another bio child!? Isabel and Jacob are conditioned that if daddy doesn't give them a kiss good night, then they can't fall asleep. Like Isabel and Jacob, my co-workers are conditioned that about every 2 years I will inform them that we are adopting.
A close friend of mine asked me about a month ago if we were done, and I said emphatically, "YES." He quickly stated that was the first time he'd ever heard me say that. Even after Eva, I wouldn't say we were done (guess I was right on that one because 2 years later we brought Nia home).
So, why are the Pregont's done adopting? Stay tuned for this week's blog topic of why we are done adopting.
