“…once our eyes are opened, we can't pretend we don't know what to do. God, who weighs our hearts and keeps our souls, knows that we know, and holds us responsible to act.”
~Proverbs 24:12

What Size Shoes (Will) She Wear?

If one didn't think we were studying up already, we sure have started now!

It took us a while to realize we are meant to adopt; it took us longer to figure out from where we should adopt; and it took us even longer to decide on a placement agency to help us with the adoption process.

However, now that the ball is rolling and we're up to our knees in paperwork, we're reading up on some of the ins and outs of parenting adopted children and, well... parenting in general. We found this cute book on Amazon, which was free thanks to Swagbucks! "Adopting a Toddler: What Size Shoes Does She Wear?" by Denise Harris Hoppenhauer. (Our child will most likely be between 11 and 36 months when we bring him/her home.)

I have a list of several more books that look interesting: "The Russian Word for Snow," "I Love You Rituals," "What I Want My Adoptived Child to Know," "Playful Parenting," etc. The list is endless, really. Something a nerdy book-lover such as myself gets all excited about! Even if they don't turn out to be helpful, at least it's something to keep us busy as we wait until we can bring our child home!
