The Army (big A, always big A) has an acronym that is my new favorite. Overcome By Events (OBE) is a military term for a situation wherein the initial solution to a problem is rendered useless by unexpected events, raising a need for a different solution.

When I first started blogging, I thought this would be a nice documentation of our adoption process for our child when s/he comes home. Nine months, four weeks and one day later, I am finding little to write about our adoption process. Friends ask why I don't write as often as I used to. How many ways can you say, "We're still waiting. Things are moving slow."? However, I am enjoying keeping the blog and writing about the experiences of everyday life. So I think I will continue to expand my posts beyond thoughts about the adoption. I hope y'all don't mind.
