We are officially done with paperwork to be approved to adopt!
Our original goal was to be approved by the end of 2012 and then the holidays threw us off with trying to get things done, but we still managed to get everything done a couple weeks into the new year! So I'm happy with that. :)
Now comes the "waiting"... Our profile is online for expectant parents to view. Anyone considering placing their baby for adoption and take a fancy to us can contact our caseworker. That's when the fun begins! We'll probably get to meet lots of fabulous girls who chose life over abortion, even when they found themselves in a very difficult situation. It's very interesting to me to hear their stories and my heart aches for every one of them as they struggle with life-changing decisions... sometimes at a very, very young age.
Feel free to share our blog and/or our profile page with anyone you know who is considering adoption. You really never know who will see us as the right family, or where our child will come from... we could be flying to any state in the U.S. to meet some of these girls! We look forward to sharing our stories and seeing if we're a perfect fit to answer each other's prayers.
So scary, but so exciting. :)
