Labor day Meme

This one is all about your labors....as in delivery...as in having children. Being as all of our kids were adopted...this should be fun :)



How long were your labors?

#1 & #2- Congrats! Its Twins! Only 2 1/2 years apart....forget hours baby...we are talking about months.....10 months of dossier prep, translations, and immigration all followed by 10 months the Haitian side paperwork, translations, and immigration.

#3- 30 days dossier prep, translations, and immigration followed by 4 months of the Haitian side paperwork, translations, and immigration (yeah we learned from our mistakes the 1st time)



How did you know you were in labor?
Labor = work...obviously you have never put a dossier together........

Where did you deliver?
not too many moms can say this one...."At the Airport"

Drugs?
yes please

C-section?
You bet...we flew in the coach section both times

Who delivered?
#1 & #2- I delivered them myself thankyouverymuch

#3- decided to take the easy way out *cough cough* and let Lori do it....


If you would like to join in head over to Shannon's and leave your post!

Great meme! I'm so glad that the adoptive moms are participating too. I have a friend who's been "labouring" for years now and we all pray she'll deliver soon.

So great! Such a sense of humor in it all! We are currently rounding our dossier for an Ethiopian adoption. It's fun to see your answers!

You are so cute!
I was just thinking yesterday about how LONG a road it is to adopt. Kudos to you for going into adoption labor THREE times!

Beautiful stories! I think adoptive moms have a way longer, much harder "9 month" wait. And I can only imagine the reward is that much sweeter, for parents and children. My husband adopted my first born, I love to see other families come together this way. Be blessed! ~Whitney
