Kind of long week

I signed up for the Christian Writers Guild yesterday. And I found a job yesterday that really looks interesting, and got an application in to the people today. We’ll see. I’m looking forward to the holidays, but at the same time I feel like my family is on vacation more than we are home. And it would really be nice to get into a routine with work and school now.

I think it may be a good idea to write on here why I started writing about adoption in the first place. My church has home groups, and those groups are a big part of our life together. The group I had been part of, and loved dearly, had ended because of some difficult circumstances. I was talking to aanother friend at church, and she invited me to their group.

The group turned out to be one I knew several of the couples and so I became pretty comfortable there. It turns out that infertility became a big issue in that group. Several months after I started going to the group, it shrunk down to three couples, , one of the couples being the leaders, and the other two couples had infertility problems. One of the couples was older and was helping the younger couple who was figuring out that they were having problems.

It was a hard time, and I thought a lot about wanting to help them. At that time I was trying to start a new story each day, and adoption became a theme for me… So that’s how everything started.
