Crystal ball

Not sure how to approach this one or how it will transpire. We have had nice long chats with lots of adoption agencies who have been willing to answer any and every question under the sun but we may well need to deal with an actual lawyer as well. It seems that - just to talk to us - he wants a chunk of change. Compared to the rest of what it's costing us, it is really change, but it just seems a little unhelpful. And we may well not have a choice as he seems to be the only one who can work with other agencies in this way.

However other aspects of my future are a little clearer to me. Tomorrow I have a small birthday meal after a birthday haircut and highlights and before a slightly more (I hope) well-attended birthday drinks. On Saturday I have the joy of accompanying 8 Brownies to meet up with 82 other Brownies for a World Thinking Day celebration, followed by a night out with the lovely Mr Spouse.

And this evening I have a brief session relaxing in front of the TV (my Lenten discipline is to limit myself to an hour a day of TV; so far this evening I have tidied and dusted what will hopefully be our baby's room, in place of some of the TV, go me!), and a quick reminder to Mr Spouse that birthdays require CAKE.

Should I be saying 'Happy Birthday'? I hope you have a fab day - it's such a good time of the year for a birthday!

It's a shame about the lawyer - it seems so unfair that there is yet someone else who wants piece of money from you before you can become parents.

Ugh. Lawyers. Ppbbbt. It sucks when you're feeling like your family making is a business.

Hope the birthday is a happy one.

Happy birthday to you!

Ugh. I'm sorry you may need to get an attorney as well as deal with an agency.

One step at a time, right?

Hope you're enjoying your TV time. :-)
