Announcing......

We've got some BIG news to share.  It's something that God put on my heart a LONG time ago and we've seriously prayed and thought about it for awhile.  If you've read my blog at all, you know I have a heart for this and probably knew it was coming sooner or later, well I've probably put you in suspense long enough from my Facebook status.  SO, our BIG ANNOUNCEMENT IS............

ok here it is:

We have started pursuing adopting a little 8 month old boy!  eeeeekkk! :)

We've been praying about the timing and when to start pursuing it and the opportunity was literally laid in our lap.  Just like God to do that, huh? 

I'm asking that you pray for us as we start this journey.  There are a lot of ups and downs with adoption, as I've seen first hand.  God's got a plan and we're honored to be apart of it.

  1. Congratulations on this decision! God bless you all in this journey. I've heard there are quite a few hoops to jump through for adoption, so hopefully it will be smooth sailing! We'll be praying for you! :)

  8. Taking a child, He set him before them, and taking him in His arms, He said to them, "Whoever receives one child like this in My Name receives Me; and whoever receives Me does not receive Me, but Him who sent Me. Mark 9:36-37

    I can't think of a better family God can trust with this little life. Hoping to meet him soon.
