Brief Update

Well, it’s hard to blog through this stage of the adoption. Those of you who have been through it probably know what I’m talking about. We’re in the middle of filling out TONS of papers and meeting with the best social worker in the whole world. (Her presence has really been a gift.)

Rebecca now has a part-time job that is allowing her to slowly make money to help pay for fees. We are hoping this will provide enough hours to cover our third agency fee, due in about 40 days. Then, after the home study is complete, we will start to apply for grants.

We’re looking into doing some foster parenting until the adoption is complete. Since our wait time is projected to be 18 months, we are thinking we might at least be able to help a child or two during that time. Hosting an exchange student has also crossed our minds.

Thanks for your continuing prayers. Several of you have asked how things were progressing, and that’s nice to hear. It’s a long process. We are thankful to have you on the team with us!


About This Blog

Welcome to our family’s adoption journey. As you read, you will see us stumble and take wrong paths. You will see our hopes surge and fall. You will see the gaps in our humanity, and how our God realigns us to His purposes over and again. We think the messiness of this process is important. Sometimes walking with God isn’t a neat, linear package that can be summarized in bullet points. More often, life ebbs and flows around our plans, while God works His sovereign wonders from it all. We are learning so much through this journey. And we are super excited about our new son. If you’d like to join us, we’d love to have you along for the ride.
