She's getting a sibling or two...

Well sort of.

Enough to draw you all in though.  Ha!  But glad you're here. 

We decided that it was high time to start diving into what our hearts always wanted to do.  And now that we have the ability to try, we're trying.  Trying to foster and adopt that is.

We're still very much at the beginning of the process.  But the decision has already caused our family to make drastic decisions.  But we're ready, or at least as ready as we'll ever be.  And we know that this will include sacrifice.  Lots and lots of sacrifice.  But that is what dying to live means anyway, right? So here goes.  We're all in.  Together.  And we might possibly take you all on the ride this will be.
