From Tiffany's Perspective.....

I just read some of Dustin's blogs and I decided that they are getting a little less exciting everytime so I thought I would post one. I think we have some different thoughts about different things that are happening and we tend to focus on different things. Our homestudy was very interesting. Before it was completed we had to complete over 10 hours of online classes. We did really well until the last class and then we got a terrible case of Senioritis. We couldn't focus and it took us days to finish that one class. I realize that this will all be worth it, and that it will be nothing in hindsite, but it was the first time I felt unworthy of parenthood - like I was being tested and failing. Maybe that's how my students feel when I give them a major assignment three weeks before they graduate from high school. Consider it lesson learned. :)

Our adoption counselor sent us our homestudy to read over the other day, which is pretty much a summary of our entire lives, and all aspects of our lives. It was interesting stuff to read as a third person, and to hear her perspective on things. I thought it was pretty accurate, especially the part about me having a great sense of humor and charming. :) Of course, that all went out the window when she had to comment on our physical appearance and she said something about us both seeming to be in "great shape." She must have been ignoring the back muscle I pulled the other day pulling weeds....yet another indication that I am no longer in my mid to early twenties.

Anyway, I can't write much more since I spent so much time making fun of Dustin for being a "blogger." I guess we'll continue to keep you posted.

One day in the not-too-distant future, the homestudy will be a vague memory and you'll be up to your ears in parenting. And then you'll blink, and your kid(s) will be in college.

That's what happened to me, anyway. It's hard to believe how fast it goes.

And I should have introduced myself - I'm the adoptive mom of two Korean teens, one in college, one in high school.

I'm stalking your blog and I'm a little disappointed in your lack of posts lately :)
