So it's been just over a month since we made our big announcement, and I thought it might be a good time to update on where we are with the whole process (so to speak).
We are gathering documents and saving up money for the Home Study that we actually hope and plan to have complete by the end of April/beginning of May. I think we have decided on the company for the Home Study itself, but we are still looking into agencies for our actual Adoption.
We have been drawn to the story of Hannah, and her son Samuel lately. She prayed and prayed for a baby and after she saw Eli at the temple that one day, and he thought she was drunk on wine but she was actually praying to the Lord for a baby, the Lord granted the desires of her heart. Then we know that she actually dedicated her son, Samuel, to the service of the Lord. What a beautiful story.
Similar to Hannah, we've been praying fervently for a baby of our own. Although we don't know the timing, we are so excited to be on the journey together.
