Motherhood ~ the quest continues

“I want us to adopt a child.”

Hub made this declaration last weekend.

I looked at him with all seriousness and replied, “And with everything remaining constant, how do you propose we make this happen?”

He has a plan.

It doesn’t involve anything remaining constant (financially).

I was impressed.

Life kept us busy this past week and so we didn’t do much talking, let alone talking about adopting.

That is, until yesterday over lunch.

He brought it up again.

As in, “We need to start saving for the adoption.”

I’m not really sure how to take all this “talk.”

We’ve survived two failed adoption attempts; I’m a little shy about trying this a third time.

Not to mention friends in our age group are celebrating children graduating from college, getting married, having children of their own.

My name’s not Sarah and he’s not Abraham.

Although if the third time really is “the charm,”  maybe we should consider a name change. 😉

  1. Lisa,Go for it. Found your blog from the fabulous dailymile. We have 3 adopted children and 3 biological. Long story but we had a failed attempt after having 2 little ones in our home for 2 years. Do not give up hope. Email me if you need more info or input. Have a good evening, Cindi
