I've been reading a lot of adoption blogs lately.
I love (ok, I'm addicted) reading about other families who have adopted or are in the process of adopting like us.
I've noticed something about these blogs though.
It is extremely rare to find much written about the difficult or harder aspects of adoption.
Now, I will be the first to admit that I am guilty of only wanting to put the best pictures up and only portray my children and family (and especially myself) in the most positive light.
The reality of my life, my children, my family, and most especially myself...is that we are far from perfect. There are aspects of our lives that are hard. There are moments that I'd rather forget. There are issues we deal with.
Un-fun and non-romantical parts.
Dog hair on my white pants dag-gone-it moments.
We are only a month and a half into our official adoption journey and I've already learned that there are going to be difficult moments. Not just in the process...but even (especially) after our child(ren) come home.
I don't want this blog to be a romanticized and warm and fuzzified picture of our family and our adoption journey.
I want to be honest.
I want to be transparent.
Even if it means I don't always appear to be perfect.
Even if it means I admit that I have freak-out moments.
I embrace the promise the Lord gives that when I am at my weakest, He is strong.
So. I am committing to being transparent as I blog about our adoption journey. No sugar coating.
and the multitude of in-between moments.
