"Adoption...Not a second choice, a fallback option, or because you can't have "your own". But wholly believing you are seeking to bring home the very child God created with you and your home in mind, fully equipping you to be the very parent He created you to be." Anonymous
Yesterday was the beginning of November and also the start of National Adoption Month! You may remember that just two years ago we were finishing our fundraising and paperwork to turn everything in to our agency after Thanksgiving (the application fee was waived because of National Adoption Month) and we did it! Thanks to a lot of you loyal friends and family! We completed the homestudy, a month later we were active, then after another month we got matched and about a month later met our son! What a whirlwind! Now our sweet boy is 19.5 months old and growing in so many ways each day!
I am going to make a few posts this month about adoption, different types, resources for funding, etc. But I thought I would start out with a little bit of our story in case you didn't already know. :) Always feel free to ask any me any questions you may have either in a comment on social media, on my blog or email me!
