Something exciting is happening!

I apologize for the delay in updating the blog.  We have been busy doing the great "paper chase" that is apart of the home study process.  Things have been moving pretty well in that direction, and we are pleased with our progress to date.

We are people of faith.  I state that because we believe our call to adopt is part of God's larger plan for us.  We are not doing this because it is trendy or makes us cool (we are already pretty awesome!), we are doing it because we believe that to whom much is given, much is expected.  Sometimes though we get a picture in our mind of how things are going to go and you start to expect the pieces to fall into place, and THEN WHAP!!  God pulls out His divine 2x4 and hits you right upside the old noggin.  That doesn't happen to you??  Must just be me, LOL.

I write that because we have identified and committed to the sibling group we will be adopting!!  It wasn't how we thought it would go, but we know it His plan that we adopt these kids.  We are so excited to have them be apart of our family and we know that their presence will be a blessing in ways we can't even begin to imagine.  It will not be easy, but nothing ever worth having is. 

In the coming months we will finish up our HS and start to build our dossier.  Once we have HS approval we will begin to share a little more about the kids and the process.  In the meantime we are continuing to fund raise by selling the bracelets Kim makes - Mother's Day is May 12th!! - and look for other ways to help raise funds.

We look forward to sharing more in the future.

Until next time....
