The Spirit of Magnolia

An infertility / adoption / pregnancy blog. After 3 MCs and IF testing (with no diagnosis) we shifted our focus to adoption. After being matched we discovered we were pregnant. After telling our agency about the pregnancy our match was severed. This is the story of our journey to parenthood.

Those 3 little words are music to my ears!

Yep - its true - our social worker has approved us!
We're on to the next stage.....
... writing our "Dear Birthmother" letter....

UGH - this is a toughy!
I thought that the Self-Study was hard. I was wrong ... so wrong ...
How do you draft a letter to someone you know absolutely nothing about asking to parent their child?
(any suggestions would be appreciated!)

Ive purchased a bunch of books on the topic but its still so hard!
My DH has already finished one draft but its a bit too sterile for my liking. We're going to dive into it again today with the hopes of finishing it today (lofty goal).

I even went to Archivers to get some fun paper to scan in and crop for accents. I think designing the letter will be a blast!

Wish us luck!
