As the homestudy process is drawing to a close, the reality that we could soon be parents is sinking in. Most likely we won’t get a lot of warning when we’re matched with a baby- maybe a week, maybe a month… either way we realize we’d better start getting ready now!

One on hand we’re ready. Being parents is something we’ve wanted for a very long time. On the other hand, possibly the bigger hand, we have no idea what we’re getting ourselves into! Life is about to drastically change and it feels totally surreal. Beyond needing to gather things like diapers and baby clothes, we’re starting to consider things like how our schedules will shift, how our sleep will lessen, and how sharing one car might suddenly get a bit trickier. All in  all, though, we hear from the experts (people with kids) that the life upheaval is well worth it. Guess we better get busy on that baby room mural!
