We are up and running!

Hola, we are officially 'in the system' now!  Our online profile is up and running.  This is what it looks like.  I didn't paste the link because I'm sure you don't want to read a VERY lengthy autobiography about us!!!  It details everything from how we met, our home, our neighborhood, our faith, pics of our family, and more.

In addition to our online profile, our booklet profile is finished too! It is 12 pages and it is lovely! We had some help from a friend, Scott Henderson and he did an amazing job! If you need a graphic organizer, I highly suggest that you contact him.  He is fast, efficient and does beautiful work.  His website is

Isn't it purrty??? LOL.  I had 30 copies made and I sent them to the agency today.  We can now be presented to potential birthmoms that call!  For some couples, they are 'matched' within a couple of months and with others, it can take up to two years.  Some couples are called after a baby is born and the birthmom decides to put her baby up for adoption at the hospital.  It all depends on our preferences, the birthmoms preferences, additional birthmother expenses and our home study being completed.

Last but not least, I saw this on Facebook the other day and it really encouraged me.  It reminded me that although my road with infertility has been painful and hard, I know that God has something great planned for our future family.  I hope this encourages you too :)

So, thats where we are at so far! I'm so excited.  Its starting to feel "real".  Until next time...xo

  3. Thanks for recommending your blog. Our situation is indeed VERY similar. Man, those profile books can be pricey, right? Ah - but in the end it's all worth it! Please let us know when your special angel comes home to you!
