One Year Ago today....

....We drove to Houston to meet with our adoption agency, for the first time. Jason and I pulled up to NEW LIFE and I felt like I was going to throw up...I was so nervous. Jason and I sat in the parking lot and he prayed over this journey that we were beginning.

Our meeting went wonderfully...Jason and I had so many light bulb moments sitting in Cindy's office. We were there for several hours and when we left we felt more educated in the area of adoption and we knew we were making the right decision by using New Life.

I remember leaving the agency and crying, my heart already yearning to receive a child. Little did I know...I wasn't ready to receive a child then. God has had to do a lot of breaking and molding on my heart, that's why the "wait" is such a learning experience. But I wouldn't trade it for the world.

After our meeting with the agency we began ALL of our paper work...I worked so hard to get all of it done REALLY FAST.

And well....we are done with everything we need to be done with...and we are just waiting on the call. A call that will forever change our lives. A call that will tell us we have been chosen.

So, today marks ONE YEAR.

What a sweet day to remember.

I too felt like I was going to throw up when we first pulled up to our adoption agency...Isn't it funny "having" a baby through adoption, you have to "try out", give every detail of your life and your marriage and your spiritual walk...some people just have sex to have kids!

Sorry, hope that wasn't too much! I just think it's amazing, this adoption thing...I am so honored that God brought us here. I wouldn't have it any other way!

We are praying for you and I love how you appreciate this waiting time knowing that God is doing great things...we just have to look around and see Him moving!

Thanks for the update!

I am not sure why there's a "b" there after my note.

I'm retarded!
