I just had to share-

I was being pretty quiet about my adopting research because I figured my husband would be 100% against the idea. I finally fessed up last night and we had a very good (and very long!) talk about my hopes for an adoption.. Cost, how I would like to go about it, etc. After our talk he said "I'm not ready yet, but that is not a no"

Fast forward to today.. Somehow the subject came up again earlier and he asked "would we be able to pick our adopted child's name??" I was so excited because he was expressing interest. AND just a min. ago I was telling him more about the research I was doing and he said "I am more open to the idea now that I know more about it..."

YAY! What a huge step for us! I am so happy

That is awesome that he is open to talking about it! And way to go with not pushing him, but allowing him to find his own way into it too!

Thank you to AlexAiden Mommy for my beautiful siggie!
