Our Adoption Journey

November 24, 2014

As I sit here typing this…there is a baby fast asleep in my swaddle shirt.

A baby.

WHAT?!?!?!

We are obviously still in disbelief but it’s been two weeks since Miss Josephine Rose entered this world.

Two weeks in which we have basically lived in a Zombie-like  sleepless state. Two weeks filled with the h.a.r.d.e.s.t. things we have ever done. Two weeks brimming with joy and hope.

And unless we sit down to document the journey here, it will likely be lost in our imaginations forever since our memories deprived of sleep haven’t been proving too reliable.

EEEEEEEEEEK!

We are so excited about the upcoming adoption!!! :)

Both of us express this enthusiasm in different ways though….

Have you seen Home Alone? Remember when the mom calls 911 about leaving her son at home? They keep passing her back and forth, describing her as “hyper on (line) two?” 

That’s me.

I’ve washed, dried, folded, and organized all my cloth diapers by color. I’ve dusted every visible and non-visible surface of the house. I ironed a curtain with one wrinkle. I vacuum constantly and wipe down the kitchen counters at least three dozen times a day. Then when I have nothing left to clean, I pick a fight with Jonathan just to stay mentally preoccupied.

NEW

Welcome back to the new and improved True Good and Beautiful!

We are so very excited to introduce not only a new look but fresh content meant to help you thrive in what matters most.

It all began a few months back after realizing just how many people are hanging out with us in our corner of the inter-webs. We never started the blog to “draw a crowd”  but by God’s grace it’s been happening.

Many of you graciously reached out and expressed how much our blog means to you or has helped you through a difficult time. It’s truly been a privilege to share our lives with you and have you share your lives with us in return.We absolutely LOVE connecting with all you readers out there!

Three Years Ago Today…

Today is the Feast Day of St. John Paul II….but it’s also our Third Wedding Anniversary! :)

We’ve grown a lot in the past three years and I can honestly say the Sacrament of Holy Matrimony is making us better versions of ourselves with each day that passes.

With that, let’s take a peek at that day it all began…

Welcome to this week’s edition of the Little Happies, the happiest little link up around! :)

It’s been a busy week and a half around the Teixeira home. This past Friday and Saturday we completed our adoption training classes…meaning we’re approved to adopt and officially just WAITING for Baby Girl’s grand appearance into this world. We still have a good amount to get done around the house before her arrival but the time can’t pass quickly enough!

With that, let’s check out some recent Little Happies.

It’s your last chance to join in the adoption puzzle fun! :)

Back in August we successfully met our phase one goal with a 9-day push! Woohoo!

At that point, we needed $13,000 to submit payment to both adoption agencies (Colorado and California). We exceeded that goal with all of your help and couldn’t be filled with more gratitude.

So, what’s the puzzle look like today?

DSC04335A whole lot more progress from last time you saw it, due to donations that rolled in past the nine day push.
