Adoption Adventure

This is my first blog post ever.

I created this blog several months ago, and have not made a post until now. That’s the story of my life these days. I think about things for a long time before actually getting to do them; I think it has something to do with being a mama to a one year old toddler, going to University, being on the board of a great little non-profit (www.matoto.org) and just generally being a busy body.

However, there are many things I have been thinking about for the last while and I am pleased to announce and celebrate that some of those things are actually happening! For example, I am finally making very cool felt dryer balls (something I’ve wanted to learn for a year, I’ll post about that later), and I have started a running program (months after telling myself I would, I might post about that later too), and the most exciting of all, my husband and I met with an adoption agency today and we are starting an inter-country adoption application! 

Ever since my husband (whom, for the purposes of this blog I’ll call the Mr. Hempleseed) and I met, we’ve talked about adopting children. After we got married, we decided to try to start a family the ‘old fashioned way’, and lo and behold we now have a one year old running around the house. Our little man (whom, for the purposes of this blog, I’ll call Sir Riel…haha…suriel, surreal, get it?) attached to my bosom after a marvelous pregnancy, a glorious labour, and a freakin’ crazy birth. That was just over a year ago now, and while I can’t imagine getting pregnant again (I’ll post on why some time soon), I do want to grow our happy hippy family, so adoption it is!

I won’t say much more for now. After all this is my first. blog. post. ever. I will tell you this: We are putting in our adoption application in the coming few days and on it we have to write our ‘religion and spiritual values’ in a box about the size of four peanuts. I wrote ‘Animism and Pantheism, Not Active’. I dare you to google that.

So, MamaPutu will officially become our adoption adventure blog, interspersed with other musings, such as what it means to be an animist-pantheist. (I just discovered my religion with this funky little test, who knew you could determine your religion with a few multiple choice questions?). Just kidding, I probably won’t talk about animism, pantheism, or any other ism. Okay, maybe some feminism. But probably not. Well, maybe.

If you have read this, you’re a rare bird, and you know what they say about rare birds….

I haven’t the faintest idea what they say about rare birds, so if you know, please tell me.
