Sitll working on clearing out our old bedroom and trying to find a place to put it all in the new room. I didn't realise I had collected so much junk. Been cleaning the walls in the old room and doing touch up paint work. Hopefully some time next week I'll be able to start getting the border put up around the room. and get the dressers set up than it will look more like a nursery.

I lurk. I am Erin. We are starting the international adoption process, most likely Korea.
I look forward to reading the new posts but don't have much to ad since we are so new to the adoption process.

Wow! Stay at home dad, huh? I think my dh would be a great SAHD (though I have no desire to go back to work). How is that working out for y'all?

Erin welcome to the group, at this point we are here to support each other and answer questions. and share experiences. So don't feel that you don't have much to ad. I myself am relatively new to this adoption process myself.

So far so good! He's loving it! It's only temporary, he starts school again in January and then he'll be a part time SAHD...but the little ones are very happy!

Aww, thanks. We have our first adoption meeting tonight and I think it is the agency that we will go with if we choose Korea. I will let you know how it goes.

I'm here, today I posted My Adoption Story in the November DDC, in case anyone is interested in checking it out. It's what lead me to the road of adopting. I'll state it's long, and emotional but it's all real for me.

Sorry I haven't been around much. I've stopped hosting all my boards and stopped posting much in general. I've been having some hormonal issues with several glands... one of which is a high cortisol level (stress hormone). Normal is 7 to 25. At last check, mine was 34. I was told to take a vacation and drop everything I can from my life before we start TTC next month. Too much cortisol affects lung development. I'll probably be back sometime, but for now, I lurk when I get a chance. That's it.

Awwww, I'm sorry you're having trouble, I hope you can de-stress and take it easy for a while. Good luck TTC! Come back when you can and let us know how you're doing.
