And just like that…

We are done with all three homestudies… umm.. I’m sorry, do what?

Yes, you heard correctly. Our profiles will be in by Dec. 24 and our social worker will start showing our profile to birthmothers.

I told some of my co-workers today that it’s gettin’ real. Like it could actually happen. We have had a list a mile long and have just been so focused on that, and it’s been all about checking things off. Now, we can actually be chosen! Ah! I  have crazy butterflies in my tummy knowing that we are getting closer and closer to our baby.


My heart could seriously explode.

Thanks again for all the prayers prayed tonight and everyday for us. We are so grateful for each of you.

I’ll leave you with the picture on the last page of our profile.

and just like that

I know, well played.


tomorrow, tomorrow… I love ya..


Oh, how I love Annie! One of my favorite movies of all time. 

Speaking of tomorrow… I never updated, but we did had to cancel our 2nd home-study because of schedule conflict and it is rescheduled for tomorrow. {One more step! YAY!}

We will be turning in our autobiographies and just chatting it up in our individual interviews.

We also will get to look at some examples of profiles, which I’m sooo pumped to see. After Thanksgiving and our adoption photo shoot, I plan to get started on ours. I am definitely looking forward to it, because of I love creating things of that nature, but I’m also a little apprehensive about it. I mean, hellooo!!.. this is what the birthmothers will look at while they are in the process of choosing their child’s forever family. Whoa. That will blow your mind. Okay, I’m crying.

I am just so in love with the Lord and in awe of His ultimate and amazing plan for our family. I can’t say it enough, He is faithful.

That’s it for tonight, friends. Much love and Happy Thanksgiving!
