Our New Adventure

We are going to be parents!!!! That’s right everyone! We are so beyond excited to share our good news with you… BaCall and I are adopting!!!! We wanted to share a little bit of our journey with you. We decided in January that the Lord was calling us to adopt. Now if you’ve known me for any length of time, you probably already know that adoption has been on my heart for my whole adult life. BaCall and I were ecstatic to hear God saying now is the time! We are adopting through the foster care system, which means we have spent the last 6 months taking several classes, doing stacks of paperwork, background checks, medical exams, home study interviews, and more. On June 1st we had our last interview!!!! This means that all of our part is done. Now we wait for a report to be written on all of the information that has been gathered on us. Once the report is written and we approve it, we will wait for our approval or certification. Then we wait for children to be placed with us. Lots of waiting… We can’t wait to have our sweet kiddos in our arms!!! I will be posting more detailed information on our adoption journey through the fost/adopt system for all of you interested in learning more.
