Party Girl? Why Yes I Am!
The short version. I'm a single (divorced actually) mom-to-be who chose to build my family through an adoption from China. In 2006, the wait was about 12-18 mths from the time your dossier landed in China until they matched you with a baby. Unfortunately, after I joined the line it got slower... and slower and slower. I've been waiting 46 months. Yes, you heard right. Almost 4 years just waiting to become a mom! And I don't expect a referral until late this year or early next. Until I meet my daughter I keep myself busy being the super cool fun aunt to 6 nieces and nephews and the mommy to one very spoiled little Pomeranian.
Most of the really deep stuff about me you can find over in my sidebar under the section "The History of Krista". Everything from why I decided to become a single mom by choice, to why I chose adoption as the way to get there, to the story about how I almost died...but didn't, and the seriously hysterical story of how I delivered my sister's baby in her bathtub. Go ahead I know you want to read that one. LOL!
And if you scroll down the sidebar a little bit you can even meet my sister and her 5 children or my future sis-in-law or check out my very talented brother's photography hobby.
Occasionally I share funny stories about my job as a police detective. But sometimes I talk about the heartbreak of the career I've chosen. Mostly I just blather on about whatever floats my boat on that particular day.
So if you find something interesting here, dig around in the archives, get to know me a little and follow along as I continue on this journey to my daughter. Don't forget to leave me a comment cuz I'd love to meet ya, too. :)
And make sure to stop by the 5 Minutes For Mom blog to get in on the 2010 Ultimate Blog Party. It's a chance to meet new bloggers and possibly win some fabulous prizes. I'd love to win the Grand Prize- a Toshiba laptop! Can you believe I'm a blogger that STILL doesn't own a laptop? Ridiculous, I know.
My other top prize picks are the $150 shopping spree from Pedal Cars and Retro Collectibles or A Rocking Horse to Love cuz in spite of my daughter's overflowing closet she doesn't really have very many toys yet. And I'm totally digging the $450 Human Touch Foot and Calf Massager cuz it looks fabulous. They also have a lot of gift cards I'd love to win including ones to Target, Amazon, Restaurant.com, Disney Store, etc. Check it out. There's a lot of really cool stuff!
