A Time of Transition and Decisions

Where has the time gone??  Since our last post it has seemed as if time has just been slipping through our fingers.

I promised this blog would not only be about our adoption journey, but our lives as well.  I start with sad news.  Last Friday, my father passed away.  He was 66 years old and I know that he is in heaven with my Mom and no longer has to worry about his health issues.  I know, trust, and believe that God has taken care of him.  During this difficult time, Kim and I were touched by how many people reached out to us with kind words, support and help.  We are truly blessed by knowing all of you!

A hard transition but onto our adoption.  We have narrowed our choices for an agency down to three.  Everyone we have spoken to has been friendly, knowledgeable and professional.  What separates agencies for us has been the references of other adoptive families.  Some agency references never got back with us, some were so-so, and other sang their agency's praises from the roof tops.  We try to take all of this in stride and look through the negatives and positives to see how they would effect us.  For those of you we have reached out to, we are grateful for you for having taken the time to respond to our inquires and questions.

Our goal now is to have an agency by the end of February and start the next steps.  Fundraising has gone fairly well with the bracelets Kim has made.  So far we have sold 20+ and she continues to make new designs.  They would make great Valentines Day gifts guys, hint, hint lol.  Let us know if you are interested.

The girls are in full swing with homeschooling, dance class and American Heritage Girls!  We are so proud of them and the God loving hearts they have.  I can't wait to see what He has in store for them.  Until next time....
