not yet...

We haven't told our girls yet. I had to bite my tongue this morning on the way to the bus when Kazia was asking me for another baby, well, more like convincing me. It isn't the first time I've heard this. Kazia and Neve have been asking for a while now, but I tell them it's up to God. (that's my cop out)

They've heard the word 'adoption' many times throughout the past couple of years. It has meshed into our regular vocabulary - so much so, I once caught Kazia playing Polly Pockets who were adopting. My heart smiled, even though at the time she didn't quite get the concept.

But I just don't feel the timing is *right* yet. Partly I feel it is somewhat torturous to include the kids in our sometimes seemingly never-ending journey...
and I don't feel like answering the "are we there yet?" question every day.
I want them to understand when we do explain it to them (though I do sense Kazia is getting closer to that point).

Simply, I want it to be closer to fruition.

I am looking forward to telling them. :)

And sometimes I can't wait.

Ah HA! I came here before to comment, but couldn't get it to work.

We told our kids about our adoption plans right from the start, but only because they're old enough that they had to be interviewed for the Home Study. It's a really, really long wait for kids! (Not to mention their parents.)

So cute about the Polly Pockets. I remember playing "adoption" with my dolls when I was little. Who knew it would lead to this?! :)
