Reggae Got Soul –huh?

What’s with the title? It was the song we were listening to when we started the blog. The randomness seemed somehow appropriate. I’m not much of a reggae fan and only have passing interest in ska. Rebecca’s a Bob Marley fan, but that’s about as deep as the fandom goes in the household.

We decided to set up a blog for 3 reasons:

1. First and foremost to communicate to friends and family about our “journey” through the adoption process. Particularly as we enter the later stages which include referral and travel to China. I put journey in quotes because I always envisioned going someplace during a journey. In this case, journey is defined as staying at home and getting bombed regularly while time passes. You gotta do something while you wait, but that doesn’t seem very journey-like.

2. This is supposed to help answer the questions that friends and family might have that they might not otherwise ask. The adoption process has taught us that we are extremely private people and generally radiate “don’t ask, don’t tell” type privacy vibes. So rather than try and communicate to everyone personally, we figured we’d try posting everything we want to reveal on a blog open to anyone who is willing to search for and read it. Ironic and, in its own way, funny in a strange way.

3. Our social worker and a lot of people who have gone through the adoption process all recommend keeping a journal of the process. Something about keeping a record for the future and being therapeutic. Whatever.

So here’s what you can expect from our blog in the next few months. Random musings, aimless babbling, postings of an incoherent nature and….photos and updates from our anticipated trip to China.

Anyway, thanks to Fredrick “Toots” Hibbert for the inspiration. Toots and the Maytals, “Reggae Got Soul” from the Album “True Love.”
