Wednesday, March 10, 2010


March 10, 2010 will go down in history as the day we "officially" started the ball rolling for adoption. Today we mailed our home study application and wired our first large sum to the adoption agency! As I wrote the number at the bank, it seemed like quite a bit of money, but I didn't even hesitate because I kept thinking this child is worth it! Any child would be! I wanted to take a picture to mark this day, but guess what? I can't find the camera. Imagine that?

Our close friends the OLearys are nearly at the end of the American side of the journey and they crossed a HUGE milestone today! God's given us a great gift by allowing us to walk alongside such precious friends. We are using the same two agencies they chose as well.

Thank you all for praying! One of my friends who adopted from Guatemala chose this verse for her adoption - "If it seems slow, do not despair, for these things will surely come to pass. Just be patient! They will not be overdue a single day." Habakkuk 2:3

Because I'd hoped to get all of this in the mail a few weeks ago, this promise seems fitting for today. Today, March 10th was God's chosen day for us to officially begin.

Hold on, precious little one, we're working toward coming to YOU!
