Another Q & A!

I came across a few questions that I didn't answer in my last Q&A and I think they're really important and deserve an answer.

Q: Will you be a stay at home mom?
A: Yes! There's nothing I would rather do! I consider myself very lucky that I do work from home and that I have a loving husband that works outside the home to support us!

Q: Do you have any family traditions you hope to carry on?
A: Yes. We do an alternating routine with holidays but we hope to start a new one when we find our little one. We want both of our families to come to us and have everyone spend time all together.

Q: Do you have any weekly/monthly family get togethers, date nights etc. ?
A: We live about two hours in opposite directions of extended family so we try to get together with them at least once or twice a month. We do try to have a date night every week. Cody is a die-hard Arkansas fan so he watches his football on Saturdays, so we try to do dinner out at least once a week and maybe a movie. But we make it a point to have dinner together every night. We think its really important to have that time just to see how we are and talk about our days.

Q: Do you have family/friends near you?
A: Yes! We have lots of friends that are 5-30 min away. My immediate family is about 2 hours away but when we do find our child I know they will be up all the time!! We do have Cody's family in town so they will be around constantly. Needless to say there will be lots of love for this child!

Q: What would adopting a child mean to you? (This is a VERY good question)
A: Adopting a child to us, means more than just completing our family. It fills our hearts with a new love that we get to experience. It's a new journey for us as a family. We will be responsible for a life and how they turn out. It means late nights, dirty diapers, temper tantrums, fights, homework, sports, smiles, hugs, kisses, and lots of love! And we couldn't be more excited about it!! We have lots of love to give and there won't be a day that goes by that that child won't know that she/he is loved!! We can't wait to start this new journey!!!
