The Journey Begins

Adoption is a rollercoaster ride. It's full of emotion on all ends, its full of what ifs, and suprizes. We've been through it before, we're ready... We're strapped in for the ride. Will you ride with us?

This journey we are on has started out fast paced, and promises to be an adventure. A mear 17 days ago Matthew and I decided we were ready to persue adoption for our second child. 7 Days ago we submitted our profile to our facilitator and asked to be shown to 3 potential birth mothers. 5 days ago we found out we were MATCHED! We are expecting a baby... August 21st is when he or she is expected to arrive.

WOW... God is so good, and we can't thank him enough for all he has done for us. 5 months from now our son or daughter will be here, in our arms. WOW.

The ride is just begining. We have an emense amout of things to get done before then. We have backround checks that need to be sent out and received back, our home study needs to be completed and sent off, plenty of things around here need to be done and we need to fundraise. I created a ChipIn event incase anyone wants to donate money toward the expenses we are facing in the next several months, just look on the right side of this page and you will see a link to it. If you want to donate, THANK YOU... either way, what we ask for is your prayers for our family, for our process, for our baby and for our baby's Birth Mother. I will keep you posted on the events as the come up... so check back soon!
