Great Support Groups

     Well like we said before the ball is rolling.  We have all the paperwork sent in that we need as of this point in time, I am sure there will be much more to come.  This week was a great week. We met with several groups that really have helped us lay the groundwork for both the fundraising that we need to get done and the support we need mentally and emotionally.  We had an idea that this process would be stressful and at times overwhelming but I think that was an understatement.  To our family that is what makes this such a special time for us.  Our family as well as many of our close friends are working very hard to make our dream a reality.  When this whole process is said and done and our family is together we will look back at all the blood sweat and tears that were put into this and appreciate every second of the time spent.  In advance we would like to thank everyone and anyone who has helped us out, THANK YOU!

Get the ball rolling

Yesterday was a very exciting day for us. We were blessed with the money for our homestudy and oh how I teared up! I've know from the start of this that it is Gods will and that He will provide but experiencing it and seeing it unfold is simply amazing!
I contacted our homestudy agency this morning and let them know that we are going to be sending the payment and the rest of the paperwork needed at this time their way. She reassured me that we will be on the books very soon (like a week!) Now it is time to gear up for more paperwork...and I thought buying a house or a car was alot of papers,phew,this seems to be more than that and we are just in the beginning!!! Its all very exciting yet stressfull at the same time, but totally worth it! Please continue to keep us in your prayers and keep spreading the word, Thanks =)

International Adoption

Well I thought since we are def in the process of trying to adopt sweet little Samuel I should start a blog for just that!

Over the past month it has become obvious that we are being led to adopt. I came across Samuel while I was doing my daily read on our spina bifida support group page and just fell in love. Since having our youngest who also has spina bifida, we have adapted well and our girls have also. I feel that every child should have the chance to thrive and we want to give Sam that chance. The thought of him not having a forever family breaks my heart. We want to be his forever family!

The fundraising for this little guy is in the works and we are so excited to see what God has in store for us
