Beginning.

When you first start to tell people that you plan on adopting (through fostering or the many other ways) have you noticed how many people try to give you someone else's baby that they have no business offering you? Or how everyone suddenly is an adoption coordinator that "has a friend that knows someone..." who maybe wants to give their baby up for adoption?

We had that happen a lot when we first started.

And NONE of it even came close to having us meet a child that we would ever have the opportunity to adopt.

It isn't until the paper work starts flying that you have any reason to believe that you may get to parent a child, well, at least that is true in most cases. I think I have seen one or two exceptions, but we have not been those exceptions.

So, today, our paper work started flying.

Which means those kids might just be ours.

You never know, but I am excited to figure it out.


(their adoption worker contacted our adoption worker asking for our home study and is sending us the child assessment so we can decide if we are officially interested)

Im praying for God's perfect timing, for your sanity, and for those darlings to find their way into the forever home they need the most.

I lost count on how many people tried to connect us with someone about to have a baby that was "considering" adoption. I learned to smile, politely, and respond with, "We trust God, completely, for our family." I am thankful that none of those situations panned out. We'd have 15 children by now and no room for those that need us most!

We had 8 possibilities come up while we were in the paperwork stage. None turned out to be our children.

So glad things are moving along!! Praying all goes according to His plan.
