Friday Favorite: An Adoption Map

adoption mapI think most of you know that we’re in the crazy process of adopting from DR Congo.

It’s hard enough for me to wrap my mind around everything, let alone my four-year old son.

Let’s just say, he’s not getting a brother or sister the “normal” way. He can’t see Mommy’s tummy growing. The whole idea of his sibling being on a continent called Africa far far away is not an easy thing for his young brain to wrap around. And the waiting. Oh, the waiting.

So when I saw this Adoption Map idea posted by Cheryl Troxel, another mama adopting from DR Congo, I fell in love.

Brogan and I made one of our own on Monday.

He already explained to his Grandma Gayle and Papa Kirby that when he puts the heart in the middle, that means Mommy and Daddy are on their way home with his little brother or sister.

We can’t wait to add more pieces to the puzzle!

What’s your Friday favorite of the week?

    Aww, bless you guys! And your son is soo precious! Wishing you many blessings and many pleasant surprises in this adoption process.

    My personal friday favorite is a song that I found yesterday on Dani’s website. I think it’s so romantic. I saw the movie it was played in and I thought back then that it was lovely but listening to it in full.. man, I played it like 10 times yesterday.

    Last one in the playlist butI played some of the other songs in the list and I intend to listen to it all. There’s some good songs in there.

      I’m looking at this and I’m wondering if we were supposed to share something… If not, sorry. πŸ™‚ (Guess I was a bit too eager.)
