February was a good month for us. After weeks of studying Craig passed his Microsoft Certification Test! He also finished up his Capstone Project. Now finished with his Bachelors he was able to set aside his schooling for a season, trading in nights and weekends of endless study for a job promotion and raise and some much needed family and down time. I finished up my last few weeks of on the job training at the JetBlue Center allowing me to transition from working full-time at the center to being able to work part-time in my home office. Now that we were officially “grown-ups” [Keep in mind I we say this every time we transition into another phase of our lives – at this rate we will be young FOREVER!] we decided to upgrade our very outdated appliances.
With more time open Craig was able to devote more time to his church responsibilities and family and we continued to prepare for baby – working to get our online adoption profile ready. Adoption has changed a lot over the years. Instead of going home to wait for a baby we were told to start preparing a plan for finding our baby. I love that we can keep ourselves busy and be an active part in finding the rest of our family instead of just waiting for them to come to us.
