Our baby steps toward adoption

It’s official – we’ve gotten the ball rolling on adopting a Venezuelan kid.

A year after this process started kicking around our heads, we’ve made our first tiny step toward actually making it happen. We began the process in Brazil, and it got cut off for the obvious reason that we left the country. Somehow it always seemed like this was the place where it would make sense for us to adopt, and our first meeting really made it feel that way.
