Who would choose us?
So here we go, starting a blog. I am many things, but blogger has never been on my bucket list. When we adopted our son, it just...happened. Or rather, it was pretty quick from our perspective because we were initially approached 40 days before he was born. His birth mother is a friend and relative of ours, (and an angel, and more courageous than anyone I know, and SO supportive and incredible) and suffice it to say that we didn't really pursue adoption initially, though it had been on our minds for a long time. When we initially talked about it, it seemed so intimidating. I remember saying "Matt, you are a musician, I am a teacher, that's basically the bottom of the income ladder. Who would choose us?"
