I need your advice. As has been mentioned, one of the things I’m most looking forward to about 2009 is adopting our first child. Just last night I spent some time on our adoption profile (a collection of photos and text about ourselves) for birth mothers to look at. We were supposed to meet today for our first home study interview, but the adoption social worker is home with a sinus infection. All that to say, we are definitely moving towards adoption. Exciting stuff.
Our lives will obviously change dramatically once we become parents. This is where I need the advice of those signs of life readers who are parents and book-lovers. You know how much I enjoy reading and can foresee the amount of reading dropping significantly once parenthood begins. I get that. But here’s my question: How did you maintain some amount of reading once parenthood began? Were there times/days/places that allowed you to read a few pages here and there?
I’m OK with the massive changes parenthood will bring (at least I think I am!), but I do look forward to hearing how fellow bibliophiles have made this transition.
