Yes, you read that right, we’re adopting!

If you’ve been following along for awhile you know we have been trying to start our family for nearly 7 years and not had much luck. Adoption is something I have talked about for as long as I can remember but as a couple we had been considering it for a few years now. After trying all sorts of fertility treatment we decided that at the end of the day what we really want is a family and for us that didn’t just mean biological children. We attended an information evening last Summer and then late last year we decided adoption was the way we were going to grow the Batty Bunch!

Behind the scenes this year has been crazy! We have been busy bees doing A LOT of paperwork, having our social worker basically move in and finally passing our approval panel! It’s all moved really quickly and it’s been so so nice to have this time and space to process it together, just us.

So now that we are approved it’s time to wait patiently and find the perfect match!

You lovely lot have been the biggest cheerleaders on our journey to start a family. This is the most important part of our life and as The HOS really is a reflection of my life, loves and travels it would seem odd for this not to live here as well. Being a mum is all I want to do and believe me when I say Pinterest may very well go into melt down with my pinning alone!

We are so excited to enter this next phase of our life as parents and hopefully along the way we can shine a light on the wonderful world of adoption in the UK!
