Our Adoption Story

Two of our three blessings came through adoption.  We both talked about adopting before we even dated seriously.  It was just something God had laid on our hearts separately. We had been trying for a couple of years to get pregnant so we decided to go ahead with our adoption plans.  My great aunt, Mimi was a foster parent and it had inspired me to want to do that one day.  We started our training classes through the state in 2010 and by July was placed with two adorable kids (a 3 yr. old boy and 11 mo. old girl).  Here they are.  Aren't they super cute?!?!

It has been a long road.  2 1/2 years of maybes and should be soon.  This anxious mama was so overjoyed when I heard the day our babes would be officially ours would be 11.20.12

I'm pretty sure this date is just as ingrained in my inner being like Scott's and my first date, our wedding, the day I met our two oldest children, the day I found out I was pregnant and the day our latest blessing was born.

Hi, I'm visiting from Kellys Korner!! I am #60 on her list. Congratulations on the adoption!! Your children are beautiful. We foster to adopted, and it was over a 2 yr process until the adoption was final. It is such an emotional roller coaster! They came into our home at 4 yrs and almost 1, similar ages as yours!! They are now 6.5 and 3. We live in Arkansas. Getting ready to foster again. :-) http://www.davidandheidifamily.blogspot.com/
