Well, we have turned in the online portion of our formal application!! We are planning to turn in the rest of the paperwork this afternoon to complete the formal application which will officially start our adoption process! I am so excited! There are so many unknowns to come, but also, so much to look forward to! Andrew and I appreciate the support from our family and friends as we begin this journey. Please pray for a smooth process with as few bumps in the road as possible. Also pray for understanding and the ability to deal with any bumps that may come our way. I really feel like there is a child out there, who is probably already conceived, and maybe even already born, who is meant to be our child. I read this quote in the paper a few weeks ago from a parent who has recently adopted. She said, "In our hearts, he was always ours. We simply needed to take him home." This was so touching to me because we feel this way also and it's the perfect way to put our desire to go through this process. I am excited to be able to start posting more blogs soon to keep you all in the loop with where we are along the way.
