to the team! Congratulations on starting your adoption journey. We have all been there, know how frustrating, emotional, and wonderful it all is, and are here to support you through adoption and weight loss! I look forward to getting to know you!
Hi all, After 10+ years of false hopes and setbacks, my husband and I are finally starting our adoption journey. We are trying to adopt a baby girl from Ethiopia. We started our home study in November, but it was only completed a week ago. We are SO eager to finally get started. Considering what is happening in Ethiopia, I did not want to visit the country of my daughter's birth as an overweight American. I feel that would be the ultimate insult to the country that is giving me the most precious gift. I want to be healthier for myself and my growing family. I was excited to see that other people shared the same motivation. I managed to lose about 25 lbs in 2006 through portion control and very little exercise. However, with the stress of graduate school, internship, and a residency, I am now heavier than ever and looking for a change.
