Moving forward with adoption...

Happy New Year!

As you can see by the title, we decided to move forward with adoption. It took me a while to get to this point, but God gave me a peace that I cant describe about it.  We are both excited and ready to build our family through adoption.  I cant believe that we've been trying since 2008 and this year we will celebrate 10 years of marriage. It blows my mind. Nevertheless, I know God's timing is perfect and He has a perfect plan for us.




During the month of January, we met with several agencies and finally decided on one the last weekend of the month.  They are amazing at what they do.  I have learned so much about the adoption process and now I consider myself and expert on domestic newborn adoption LOL.  There is SO much to consider when choosing an agency/lawyer/facilitator.  This past Friday we signed our papers and turned in our first payment (yikes), so we are officially "in the system".  YAY! Now we move onto more paperwork, background checks and our home study.



So here we go...on our adoption journey!!! As you may or may not know, the costs of adopting a baby is outrageous (average cost between $25,000-35,000)! If you are able to help donate towards the costs of our adoption, please feel free to do so by clicking the 'paypal' button.  Each person who donates will be listed on a picture frame and put in our babies room :)

Thank you for all your love and support! Until next time...xo
