You may have missed our quiet announcement, and now I'm excited to share that today we took the first official step in our adoption process. Although we've already spoken with our adoption coordinator, been to an information session at our agency, spoken to several adoptive families, and made several of the preliminary decisions, today is the day that we mailed our application. It's been a long process to get to this point, so getting here is really exciting for us.
Once our eyes are opened, we can’t pretend we don’t know what to do. God, who weighs our hearts and keeps our souls, knows that we know, and holds us responsible to act. ~Proverbs 24:12
I keep coming back to this piece of scripture over and over again. I saw it on an adoption blog about the time we finally realized that we were being led to adopt a child - and it didn't just speak to me, it practically yelled. That was a few months ago, but the work in our hearts started long before that. It's an amazing story I hope to share here one day. For now, we covet your prayers as we continue this extraordinary journey.
