I'm a single woman who had just turned 30 at the time this journal was created. I've thought about adopting as a single woman for years, and over the last few months, those thoughts have changed from "maybe someday" to something that is a reality for me, a concrete plan to begin the adoption process two years from now. (Further details of this transition and reasons for this time frame will be discussed in the journal itself.)
This journal is one of the ways I am using these two years to prepare myself for the adoption process and for single parenting. I will be joining related communities, blogging about research and my personal exploration, and hopefully forming supportive relationships with other people who are impacted in some way by adoption.
