I know, I know — two months is a long time between blog posts! But we’ve been busy, for a very good reason (or ten). In short, here’s what we did in those two months:
Traveled to Atlanta for a business trip. Traveled to Nebraska to help our friends move. Helped run a weekend beach retreat for 150 high school students. Traveled to New York City for a business trip. Worked behind the scenes on a whole bunch of business ideas. Shot a bunch of portrait sessions. And . . . completed our adoption dossier and home study.

We announced on social media back on January 1 that we’re adopting from Korea, and that’s when we added a pop-up to our website about how this year’s photography jobs are funding the adoption — but I realized the adoption news never quite made it to the blog! To say it’s been time-consuming (and attention-consuming!) would be an understatement. The very next step in this process is getting matched with our child. And that could happen in a matter of weeks! We’re excited, and just a little overwhelmed. So we’ve also been busy starting to get a bedroom ready for a toddler, learning about parenting after adoption, and somehow trying to soak in the news that, before the end of the year, there will most likely be another walking, talking person in our house.
