**This was the post I wrote on the boys' blog a few days ago announcing the end of that blog - it imported here with the rest of that blog and I'm leaving it. Meant to Be (this blog) will remain open and I will continue to write here! Thanks to all of you that followed the boys' blog - it's been a pleasure!)**
I've been contemplating this blog for quite awhile. I simply don't have the time to keep this blog up and over time I've included my writings about the kids and our life and the cute things they say and do over at Meant To Be. But I've kept this blog because I love that our journey to becoming a family is chronicled here. And this blog was such an encouragment to us when we spent so many weeks in Kazakhstan going through one of the most emotional and wonderful journeys of our life.
And so it is with alot of thought and some sadness that I conclude this blog. I will be merging the posts into our other blog very soon and closing this one. It's time. We are so thankful for the amazing way God has blessed us.
