Preparing for Brother

Now that we are through the holidays and into the new year, we’re shifting gears into a new phase of our lives. Paperwork has been officially submitted, and we begin our adoption classes this weekend. After that, it’s home study time.

We haven’t really made any changes around here to get ready just yet, but the girls are constantly preparing for their new sibling. They talk about what he might be like. They ask where he’ll sleep and make plans for his room. Our 7-year-old calls him “Brother” as if that’s his real name.

“Where will Brother sleep when he moves here, Mommy?”

“Do you think Brother would like this?”

“I made this picture for Brother at school.”

I’m preparing in my own way, too. I can’t stay off the Adopt US Kids site. I’m following more adoption resources on Facebook and Twitter. I’ve even created a Pinterest board for boy stuff. I know it will be a whole, new world, and I can’t stop imagining it.

We have a long road ahead of us, and there will be plenty of challenges along the way. But, it’s a little like pregnancy that way — and the dreams are all about the good stuff. I can picture a sweet little boy. I can imagine the girls loving on a little brother. I just can’t see what’s next just yet.

And, we’ve been down that road before…
