A new beginning...

Step one of our adoption process has been completed as of this evening!! Our meeting exceeded our expectations, and we left feeling even more confirmation over this decision than what we went in with. Now that we are loaded with tons of information, we are ready to start our application and get ready for our home study.

I'm not ready to reveal details of the route we are taking here on my blog, but as we get further into the process I will. There is still a lot to pray over, and God still has the reigns here, so jumping the gun and revealing those details is probably not the wisest decision. We have a long road ahead, so we appreciate the prayers and support more than we can say!

We just want God's will for this adoption. We will love whatever child He blesses us with. Please continue to pray, specifically for finances, our emotions, and especially for the birth parent(s) of our future child, even though we have no idea who it will be. Pray for protection over their heart(s) as they make one of the most difficult, yet most beautiful and selfless decisions of their life.

Our adoption specialist gave us this verse tonight as encouragement and challenge:

"Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.". James 1:27 (NIV)
