On March 13, my husband (John) and I were selected to become the parents of 9-year-old DJ. Ever since, we’ve been on cloud nine. This is almost the end of a very long, exciting, and difficult process to adopt our first child.
Now that the euphoria has started to abate just a little, I find that I have about a gazillion questions ranging from how to decorate his room to how much should we be saving for college every month.
Lucky for me, I have a whole host of friends & family–some with children, some without–who have foolishly offered to help me on this wild & wacky path called parenthood. But how to harness all of that collective knowledge? Well, a blog, of course! Thus begins what I’m tentatively calling MargaretAdopts to journal my transition into being a new mom and to gather the collective wisdom of friends–new and old.
My plan is to post a wide variety of questions and observations about parenting and then sit back and let the advice pour in! Hopefully this will be a place where folks can post their own experiences and questions, too.
