On the off chance someone we don't know is reading this, here's the synopsis: Sarah and I met, moved in together, got a dog, got married, and decided to adopt a child. Now you're caught up.
Thanks to some very generous friends and family, we raised about $8,900 toward our adoption costs at the wedding, and now we're ready to get started trying to build the Higginworth family.
We really don't know what we're doing yet, so we decided that a little blog would be a fun way to chronicle the journey and to show everyone how we are putting that money to use.
We're just getting started though, so you'll have to stay tuned. Coming up: we chat with the friends of ours who are also adoptive parents, call the contacts our friends have introduced to us, research the adoption agencies, and figure out what critters are eating our tomatoes in the garden.
We will keep sharing the story as we make our decisions and take our next steps. See you soon!
