I received some adoption books for Christmas this year. AND I've added a fancy new feature on the blog to show them off. I Love You Like Crazy Cakes and A Mother For Choco are children's books that have been wonderful in introducing the concept of adoption to our beautiful daughter, Livija.
I am currently reading I Wish For You A Beautiful Life. This is a compilation of translated letters that Korean birthmothers have written to their children. An excellent opportunity to see things from the other point of view. Have some tissues available for this one.
I have yet to read, Twenty Things Adopted Kids Wish Their Adopted Parents Knew. I heard it's wonderful in offering the adoptees point of view. I will offer a little review when I finish reading this one.

Thanks for the books. I still have a long list and a lot of reading to do, in preparation for our baby. I guess the long wait, can be beneficial afterall.

It's been awhile! I haven't really had much to update. Still waiting. I did speak with our social worker for the first time in a long time. She was just checking in on us. I, of course bombarded her with a million questions. The most important one being, HOW MUCH LONGER? She believes we should be matched sometime in July. We we're thinking August, so this is good news.
We will be matched when our child is at least 5 months old. Take a minute..... do the math..... our baby has already been or will be born any day now.
