So here I am. About to start blogging! Too warn you all, I am not a great writer. My spelling is awful. Some times spell check doesn't even know the word I was trying to type. I am all over the place with my thoughts. But I still am going to give it a whirl!!

I have read other blogs that made me think that this is a great way to journal our way thru our adoption journey. Even though it may seem to us that we will never forget all we are going thru right now, years down the road it will be good for us, and more so, good for our daughter to be able to read about this journey. She will be able to read the process, what we have all had to do, and it will be good for her to see how much we love her, even though we don't even know who she is yet.'s a girl!!! We have put in a referral for a baby girl, age 0-18 months. As I just typed that it's a girl, I feel so excited. I want everyone to know about our upcoming daughter. In a different post I will go into more details about why we decided to adopt, how we came to our decision of what gender etc, but this is just an introduction, so I will keep it short!

We actually are pretty sure already of her name that we will call her, but we will keep it a surprise!! I've got to keep you all wanting to come back to read my blog!! We will wait to tell you her name until we know exactly who she is. Plus we will see what her Ethiopian name is, and see if we will use that as her first name, and the name we picked for her 2nd name, or vica versa.

Now when I say we, I am a 31 year old mom and wife. I have been married 10 years to my high school sweetheart. We were married at the age of 20 and 21. I am a massage therapist and farm wife. My name is Krista. My hubby's name is Adam. We had our daughter Jayden Skye in 2003. Actually today is her 1st day of Kindergarden! That's why I have decided to blog now. I have a little extra "me" time, so like I need more to add to my plate of working, cleaning, you know typical mom stuff, I've added blogging. So I dropped J off today. No tears(from me I mean!!) but can't believe our first daughter is in school. She is a true miracle, I will talk more about that in another post, and I am excited for her.

Anyhow that's our little family as it is right now. I will give you more insight into our lives as I keep telling you all about our journey.

Phewf. That wasn't so hard. Actually, it was quite fun and therapeutic. Here's to more blogging.
