3 Weeks until Tom goes off to Bootcamp

We are getting down to the wire now. Tom feels pretty prepared to go off to boot camp. I am feeling easier about it too. I will miss him terribly but I am already working on feeling up my days to keep busy. I will still Nanny 2 days a week. I will hopefully also get a part time waitressing job. I interviewed and the atmosphere of the place is great so I am hopeful that I will hear back a positive this week. I also plan on learning Spanish or at least starting to learn while he is gone. I have the Pimsleur Spanish phase 1 to try. I will see how good the course is before committing to more money for it. I have always wanted to learn a foreign language though so I am pretty excited.

Tom plans on working for about 2 more weeks then we will go visit family before he leaves. We are looking at this as a very positive step forward in our life. I will be reaching out to friends and family while he is away to help when I get lonely and miss him. Thankfully we will get to write each other and he will get a few phone calls while away.

Wishing to Adopt

I created this wish at WishUponaHero. Please read and share with as many people as you can. I truly believe the more this wish spreads the better our chances of adopting are.

We would very much like to adopt a healthy baby. I am putting this wish up in hopes someone will be able to fulfill our dreams of having a family. I am unable to have children due to medical issues. We believe we would be great parents who know that children are a blessing. If you are someone or know someone who is thinking of putting a baby up for adoption I hope you will consider us.

My husband is joining the Navy so we will have a fairly stable and secure life. I am going back to college to be a social worker. We are both nice, loving and stable people with so much love in our hearts for the baby who will eventually come to us. We are hoping to adopt a healthy baby and that is really all we care about. Boy or girl doesn't matter, we will love either.

We are also listing with an agency Angel Adoption next year but fees for agencies are expensive. We have set up a GoFundMe page to raise the fees for adoption. here is the link so you can also help us accomplish our goal of raising $5000 for the initial payment to Angel Adoption. We have raised $100 of the fee so far. Please share this wish because we feel the more people it reaches the better our chance of adopting.

Thank you for reading,
Johanna & Tom Spalding
