I want to move away from posts about my hysterectomy and focus more on adoption.
Believe it or not, I have had periods of time during the adoption wait where I was very zen about it. Right now is not one of those times. I know it's a combination of the holidays and the recovery from surgery that are making the anxiety worse. After 17 months of waiting, I am afraid nobody will ever choose us.
So, rather than focus on the wait, I decided to do a series of posts reviewing the adoption themed children's books that I have bought for our future child.
I have been collecting children's books since college and the baby already has a bookshelf full of books in his/her nursery. Over the past 17 months I have also added some that are adoption themed. I was not able to find very many in our local bookstores, so I ended up buying them online. It was hard to make decisions on them based on a cover picture and brief description. I figured other people may have run into the same problem, so some more information from me about the books I have already purchased may be helpful.
I feel like this is a great way to move my writing in a positive direction and may be helpful to others as well as healthy for me.
