So Brian and I are extremely excited to announce that we are adopting a baby boy from Ethiopia!! We have been praying about this for months now, and really feel that this is God's will for our family. Brian and I have always known we were going to adopt. My two fabulous nieces came to us through adoption and I cannot tell you what a blessing they have been to us!
So for us, it wasn't a matter of if, but when. And we know that this is the time. I have NEVER felt more at peace about a decision in my entire life. I know and trust that God has our family already designed for us and our son is in Africa! This does not mean that we will or will not have biological children in the future. We are just giving all that to God. We are in the very beginning stages at this point and are trying to get to the point were we can send in our paperwork to Gladney next week. I am taking off work tomorrow afternoon to get as much done as possible. We know that the journey ahead of us is long. In our phone orientation last week we learned that the process is taking about 18 months. But we trust that the timing will be perfect to pair us with our baby! Please pray for us as we begin this journey!
