There are a lot of changes taking place in our lifes right now and I am asking for prayer. We pray that the Lord will give us strength through the tough times, wisdom to make the right decisions, and peace so we dont freak out, haha!
We have decided to wait for the right time to send in our application, we don't want to be overwhelmed and not be able to enjoy the process! We want to be rested and energized ( a vacation would help) during the lengthy process!
This is a little sad for us because we are so extremely ready to be parents but we don't want to be stressed parents either! That's why we want it to be God's timing and not ours! We want to bring the baby into a peaceful home, active yet peaceful!
We are still raising money and maybe when the time comes for all of our payments we will have the money ready and waiting, instead of us stressing for it to come in!
Thanks for your love and support through this transition in our lives!
We love you all and will keep you updated!

Well, we have finally contacted our references and they have all agreed to help!
So, now we just need to make sure our finances are in order and look as best as they can on paper before we fill out our application! Which we plan on doing today!
Hopefully this week we will actually sit down and fill out that application!
Keep the bottles coming :)

Yes I've been lacking in the blog area of my life!
I don't want to put much that doesn't have to do with the adoption and we are still waiting to get our references in order before we apply!
But, with the bottle fundraiser we have raised over $600!
Thank you everyone who has filled a bottle, is filling a bottle, wants to fill a bottle or have just donated money!
It's been a blessing and will help lift the financial burden of getting our baby and starting our little family! :)
I've gotten a little ahead of the game and have pretty much picked out everything i want for his room! I'm not going to register til we get accepted but it wont take long since i know what i want! hehe!
I will prob paint his room soon...1. becasue I'm ready to decorate and 2. because it just looks nasty un painted! hehe!
