Adoption

Adoption is something that me and hubby both have decided that we would do one day we said that we would have one of our own (if God allows it) and then hopefully adopt another one.

In Mid April we filled out our paperwork for adoption knowing that it could take up to 2 years so why not go ahead and get the ball rolling to see what happens.

We also filled out an application with Bethany as well at the very beginning of this month because our pastor is on the board at Bethany.

For a little update-Bethany has approved us with everything we turned in and now we just wait and have to attend a meeting to get final approval.

State-We got approved for that as well and got our paperwork today for our 5 classes we have to attend. They will be May 20, 21, 27, 28, and June 2 from 5:30-8:30. The only bad part is its about an hour from our house but well manage.

We are praying that whatever God wants for us that he will help set our path whether it be adoption or one of our own.

If anyone has any experiences with Adoption I would really love to hear it, good or bad. Chads uncle and his wife adopted a little girl and she is precious thats what really got us thinking about the whole adoption idea.

Also, for the baby shower for anyone interested it went ok, it was a short shower so at least I didnt have to sit and think too long about everything.

Your in my thoughts and prayers. Our adoption experience was wonderful. We had a couple bumps in the road, but it all worked out in the end. One year later...we couldn't be happier. I hope your wait isn't too long.
