resolve to hope

Most of you that follow this blog know that my friend Jenn and I are organizing the RESOVLE Ohio Family Building Conference in April. For the past seven months or so, this "little" conference has become our second job, to say the least. I don't know if I have ever put so much time, effort and compassion into one single event! This conference has so much meaning for me. It actually is taking place on the second anniversary of my due date. When we first booked the venue, I thought " how in the world am I going to be able to see April 4, 2009 written on everything?" Well, as the months have gone on, I have come to see it as more of a tribute and my way of giving back to a group that helped me get out of a very very sad time in my life.

More detail on our conference can be found at Spread the word, registration is open!

a year gone by

Greg and I just realized today that he came home a year ago tomorrow. Wow, that went fast. It's great he has been home, but in his job once the year mark hits he is available to go again. We've been sitting on pins and needles for the past month or so waiting for the word. I know it is a strong possibility that he will deploy again this summer for six months. People keep asking me what I will do about the adoption if he does go and we get a call. Will I adopt the baby with him overseas, will I turn down a match or will I take us off the list until he gets back? Honestly, I have no clue. I am trying not to think about those decisions until it becomes a reality. I just can't imagine Greg not sharing in the day we finally become parents.
