An Exciting Time!

It has been awhile since I have written anything about our adoption journey, but that is all about to change!

Why? Because we have officially signed with an adoption agency!! I have already been working on paperwork all night long. We know the journey ahead may be a long one, but we are so excited to see what God has in store for our family!

Please continue to pray for our journey, for the birthmother who will choose us, and for the sweet baby that will join our family. I will keep you updated...I promise!

PS: As some of you know, I wrote back in August about an adoption opportunity that came to us but did not work out. I am happy to report that the sweet baby boy we were to adopt was born healthy and happy last week. He and his mother are doing wonderfully, and she is on the road to building a better life for herself and her sons. As hard as it was to realize that we were not going to be that sweet baby boy's parents, I am so thankful that God brought his mother into our lives, even for a brief time. I thank you for praying for this family, and I ask that you please continue to do so!
