It's Really Happening!!!

Two weeks ago I mailed in our home study application.

First, I looked both ways (to make sure no one else was around).

Then I hugged the envelope tight,

Did a little happy dance,

And whispered a quick prayer

Before sliding it into the mail slot.

One week later we got a call from the agency.
When could they meet with us for our initial interview?

I almost have to pinch myself to make sure I'm not dreaming.

It's really happening!!!

We have officially stepped onto the road towards our first international adoption!!!


On this journey

I know there will be plenty of ups and downs...


Twists and turns...


Hurdles and roadblocks.


But I also know that God already knows the end from the beginning.

He knows the path.

He will guide and we will follow...

Until...

Finally...

We will reach the end and meet the child He has chosen for us.
