Three months & no post!
Is it really three months since the last entry?! How time flies when you’re having fun waiting around for something to happen.
Actually, the last three months have gone surprisingly quickly. Lots of hanging out with friends and having fun, plus a trip up to Santa Cruz for a friend’s wedding. Nothing new to report on the adoption front – been shown to a couple of expectant moms, but (obviously) not picked, and have decided to go with an attorney up in San Francisco. We need to get around to making an appointment with them, & planning a trip up there for a long weekend.
We wanted to work with an attorney that our adoption agency knew and trusted. They recommended three to us, only one of which was in LA. We had a look at the local one’s web site, but it made us very uncomfortable. It made it sound like they really push expectant women into signing away their parental rights. Nothing at all was mentioned about having any other choices, let alone what they’d do to support someone making those choices. So, we’re going with one of the ones based further away, but who sound like they’re very supportive, and help guide expectant parents to make the choice that’s right for them. More on that once we’ve got some more details/been to see them.
