So here is a question for all the parents out there. Before you became parents, did you ever feel 100% ready for what was to come?
I ask because I am getting closer and closer with each day to becoming a parent. As of tuesday we are officially in our home study process and while I am super excited about that (more than I can even express) I am also getting more nervous as well.
As I was reflecting on this I realized I am probably in the same boat as every other parent ever. Sure the way we are building a family might be a bit different, but what parent ever feels completely ready for the responsibilities that await them.
I know that this is the path that we are being led to go down and I am going down the path quite willingly, but I am surprised by the nerves that are presenting themselves in me as we continue to get closer to the point of refferal. We still have a ways (the entire home study) to go, but we are closer now then when we started this process only 2 months and 1 day ago! (Well, started the paperwork part of the process)
Basically at this point I am 90% super excited and 20% super nervous about the whole thing! I know, I know, that adds up to 110% not 100% but I feel as if I am about to burst so I think more than 100% is reasonable 🙂
