Things... progress

I've been meaning to write and update and then just keep not doing it. Not having access to anything other than email when I'm at work does limit my output a lot. And when I'm home, I'm mostly over on Tumblr, writing or playing a game. Plus you know, family time since we have a teenager in the house.

As far as adoption goes, it's slow - we've turned in the vast majority of the paperwork, which is mostly all repeat paperwork. But, since H comes from a different agency than the one we foster through they need their own set of everything. That said, the way our families have sort of embraced H has been really nice. We feel most day like she belongs to us already, and I think she does too. We took her around on Thanksgiving and she met more of each family and did really well everywhere. She's just good teenager and we're lucky to have her.

In fact, we had family pictures with Matt's parents and sister this past week and H was in them, she even took a picture on her own with Matt's parents and it's just... super sweet. There's a great picture of the three of us as well that is getting printed on a giant canvas so we can hang it in our house. I also got Christmas cards printed with the picture yesterday and will get them sent out this week.

If you feel so inclined, I put my name down on this year's holiday love meme here.

Even with the good stuff going on - like having H with us, or my job getting extended for the next three months (this is very good), or being proud of some of the writing I've done lately - I still am struggling a bit with old anxieties and insecurities that are resurfacing after a long time away. So a little love goes a long way for me right now.

I'm not gonna put it somewhere anon and all:

I am so glad I got to be friends with you. You are the most caring person I have ever had the privilege in knowing or calling my friend. You have a good heart.
