After talking about it for quite some time and weighing the pros and cons, dh and I have decided to adopt a child! We are adopting from right here in Russia. We do want a boy, preferably 2-4. We talked to the director of an orphanage and we can go and visit on Monday. She did warn us that like international adoption, domestic adoption is just as long and challenging. But we feel this is the best route to go, especially since I don't ever want to be pregnant again. I will keep you ladies updated throughout the process.

Yes, we have already chosen our son! He is 16 months old! A complete prince haha. The first thing we did was get a lawyer and then we visited an orphanage in our city. I guess the adoption process isn't too different from that in the States.

OK, seriously, I go away for a while and I get so confused. OK, so I see this one in your siggy too I believe? But what about the pregnancy ticker?
