Our family has recently entered yet another new beginning. In the last few weeks, Bryan and I have begun the process to adopt a baby!
As I’ve shared about processing through our infertility and miscarriages, we realized one thing did not change: we still wanted to have a family. Surprisingly, as I grieved our past wounds, it was actually a dual process that slowly readied me for something new, something different.
We’re going through a local agency to adopt a newborn. We’re really excited! We’re getting starting on our paperwork and classes. So here are a few things I want to share with you, dear reader!
- Please be praying!! Be praying for us, our soon-to-be baby and especially our birth parents. These birth parents have a lot going on to have brought them to this place. Please be praying we can show them deep love and support, no matter what choice they make.
- As we go through the process, it is really important to us to respect our birthparents’ privacy. Because of that, I’m not going to share details here. I’ll share some about our experience but it’ll probably be vague too. Sorry readers! I apologize in advance, but our birthparents and baby’s privacy is way too important.
- Also, in trying to be a good steward of my time, it saddens me to realize that I need to lessen my blog posting :( Since the beginning of the year, my goal has been 4-5 times a week. That hasn’t always been the case, but it’s been fairly frequent. I think over the next few months it’ll be more like 2 times a week. I may do more very short posts or quick pictures. Thanks in advance for your patience as I figure this out!
Thanks so much for your love, support and prayers for us throughout the past 4 years and I know it will only continue. It is so joyful beginning the next step with such overwhelming support all around us. Thank you!!!
