Our First Purchase

When you're pregnant it's easy to compile a list of all of the things you need for a baby, have a shower and start buying things.   I guess if we were adopting an infant the same process would apply.  But we have a very broad age range and we want the kid(s) to  be able to pick out their furnishings so that makes it a lot harder.   Instead I have been mentally compiling a list of all the things we are going to need:

  • Furniture
  • Linens
  • Books
  • Games & toys
  • Bike & helmet
  • Swing set
  • X-box 
OK not all of these are necessities but many of these items are going to be needed quickly.  We have been putting money aside each month to cover the cost of the big items that will be needed since we have to wait. This waiting is hard so I was super excited this weekend when we were in Santa Fe and made the first purchase for our future child(ren).    We plan on putting a photo of us/our house in this and giving it to them prior to placement to prepare with the transition.

OMG! You can't start a post about your adoption journey with "When you're pregnant..." I got excited and confused!

You don't have a XBox?!?!

What a lovely idea to have a photo of both you and your home.
