With the month of L.O.V.E. coming up I have been thinking that there is nothing that we would love more than to have another little one come join our family. And I am once again feeling motivated to do something toward making an adoption happen, rather than just sitting and waiting for an email to show up in my inbox. January started off fairly glum for me but my nature is predominantly a happy one, thank goodness, and I am feeling hopeful and purposeful and myself again. And even though I have some trepidation about "putting us out there" yet again instead of taking a more laid-back approach to being "found" by a birthmom, I don't want to put off expanding our family since 1. Paul and I would love to have another baby, and 2. we think Clara will be a wonderful big sister.
Our adoption profile just reached 1,000 hits (since last May when it went live after Clara's first birthday) this past week but it only gets a few hits each day on most days. So we think it might be time for another adoption media blitz since our last one was way back in June 2012 when we asked friends and family to share our adoption info via social media outlets. That was super successful in terms of boosting views to our profile, which is the most likely way of getting ourselves noticed by potential birthparents. So if you are reading this, will you please considering doing a quick Facebook status update sharing either the link to our adoption profile: https://itsaboutlove.org/ial/profiles/27699440/ourMessage.jsf AND/OR the link to our adoption blog: http://paulandamyadopt.blogspot.com/. And also, if you are on Pinterest, please consider clicking through to our adoption blog and "pinning" it? You just never know who might see those links.
I hope this doesn't come off sounding desperate, which we aren't, but rather, as proactive, which we are trying to be. We feel like there is a birthmom and a baby out there for us and we want to do what we can to find them. And we SO appreciate your help with that!
