So Latte and I had a good talk on Friday night. I’m sorry about the silence and short updates lately, I’ve needed to do some internal processing. I gave her the IRASS and we talked about it and she decided that she’s not okay with the idea of us fostering a kidlet for whom reunification was possible. So, that leaves adoption of an older child whose parental rights have already been terminated, domestic private adoption or something eloquently named “sperm baby” as our options. Oddly she slipped back to talking about adopting a little one out of foster care on Sunday. I really need to keep reminding her that it’s very unlikely that we will be able to get a legally free child under three without major problems out of the foster care system. But at least she’s somewhat thinking about other options.
On the plus side, we talked a bit more about how we’d like to handle a biokid (hospital birth, how much medical intervention, etc). That’s good, I think that decisions are best made when all facets of each option are explored.
Also- it warmed up to 12 or so yesterday so I donned long underwear and took Puppy to the dog park. She had a blast.
PS – Today I start Stage 3 of the thirty day shred. I tried to do it last night but
I was too sober it was too late (about 10 pm). Is it bad that I love working out after about 1/2 a drink? Not enough to be drunk, but with a bit less of an edge.
