Several people have asked about our next adoption since I've mentioned it a couple of times lately :) - we are in the research stage right now. We haven't signed with an agency and haven't decided on domestic or international adoption; we just know that we would like to start the process again this year and we may or may not say when these things are underway. We expect that it could take 1-2 years. We are so excited to see God's direction and to begin anticipating another little miracle! We have been so incredibly blessed by our sons and we know they will make great big brothers when the time is right.
As you can imagine (and know if you've known us very long), adoption is a passion for us. Andrew will be on the board of a local organization this year that not only facilitates adoptions but is also consciously seeking to encourage families who might not otherwise consider adoption to do so. We hope and pray that many children will find their forever home and family this year. We also pray that waiting families will soon be united with their children. And we pray that God will bring more adoptive families forward (of all sizes), who are willing to open their hearts and lives to children needing loving families. Adoption is such a blessing to these children – and to their future families! Adoption is not just for "people like us" who do not have biological children - it's so much more.
So that's the news from our family. God is good and has provided for our family in amazing ways to allow us to even begin the process again! We are so grateful!
