I am excited to enter the first post in what promises to be an exciting, emotional, beautiful adventure. I am a wife and mom of three amazing boys. As a family, we are praying for the child (or children) who we are yet to be united with, as a "forever family".
The seed of adoption was planted in our hearts a while ago, but due to our busy lives and all the "unknowns" we initially decided to put it on the back burner indefinitely. That was, until we felt clearly called by the Holy Spirit to act! Part of that prompting happened after we attended a movie premiere at Mt. Vernon with Newt Gingrich about the movie "Nine Days that Changed the World". It is about Pope John Paul II's historic visit to Poland in 1979. After that, events began to happen that we felt were clearly orchestrated by the Lord, and His plan for our family.
We are now in the beginning stages and it is becoming real! It's exciting and overwhelming at the same time. It's been such a blessing to connect with other families, read blogs and observe the beautiful stories that have inspired us already. I am in the process of compiling a blog roll and getting my bearings. We are anticipating having "joy in the journey" as we inch closer to our child (or children)!:)
Going private soon.....
