And This is Where it Begins...Again!

In January of this year we sent our heart back to Latvia in the form of four beautiful children we had hosted for a month. Our one and only thought was how to get them back into our home as fast as possible. We filled out an application and were ready to mail it in when we received word that our four did not want to be adopted. As our dreams crashed down around us, we tucked our application away in an almost forgotten corner of the house. Life returned to normal and our dream died down to a mere flicker of a flame.

November is National Adoption Awareness Month and the time when many adoption agencies drop their application fees. Not really having a definite plan, we decided to take advantage of a $200 savings, dust off our application, and mail it in. Today, we received this ...

It is the first packet in a series of packets to get the ball rolling towards adoption.

Do we know where we are going with it?

No. Nope. Not at all.

We are heading down an open road, trusting that God will lead us exactly where He wants us to go.

Let the paperwork begin!!!
