Anyone In The Raleigh Area?!?!?

Well, we got a few things set up at the house in Holly Springs, NC.  Our moving truck will be here in VA Monday the 13th and then we will have our bigger pieces of furniture at the new place.  I picked up some Craigslist finds for MK's room, a desk, dresser, and nightstand.  I'm planning to sand it all down and paint it a cool purple color that she picked out.  I want her to feel like she has a fun room to hang out in.

The new house is H-U-G-E!!!  We're just renting it for a year, and then we plan to buy something once we learn the area better and see where we want to live.  So far, I LOVE Holly Springs.  Everyone is kind, helpful, and just over all it has a home-like feel.

So if any of you are in the Raleigh area, please send a comment with your e-mail.  I have to approve all comments, so I will e-mail you then delete the comment so it's not public.

Just wanted you to know I really enjoyed reading about your time growing and learning with your daughters. I am so glad that they found a home with parents like you. We are in the middle of the adoption process. We have considered fostering but we don't feel quite ready. Thanks for sharing, i appreciate the time you ahve taken to educate other people who are dealing with similiar issues!! Keep up the good work!!

I ran across your blog while searching for blogs of people doing Foster Care Adoption and specifically interracial adoption. So glad to find you!

We are currently in the visitation/transition stage of a pre-adoptive placement of two children. This is our first foster/adoption experience and it will be an interracial adoption. We live in the Raleigh area (Knightdale) and would love to be in contact with other families who understand the process!
