Well…. we are done!

After many months (many is relative)  we have everything that our adoption agency needs from us turned in!!! Our social worker came to our house and did our last bit and now everything is in her hands. She said it would take her about a month to get our homestudy done. We should be hearing from her around the first of July to start the “official” waiting process!! We are soooooooooo excited and ready for this baby! I can’t believe everything is done and it is officially out of our hands. It feels like we crossed over the top of a huge mountain and we can see the promise land!!

It is great to have this month to sit back and relax and enjoy our time together. These could be the last couple of months we have by ourselves for a long time. I feel really good right now. Not to anxious or impatient. I am really relaxed and dreaming about this baby. Who knows if it will be a boy or a girl? We were really hoping it would be a boy in the beginning (and still) but I think we are getting a little more excited about the idea of a girl. Who knows!

I have our baby bed, mattress, stroller/car seat, pack n play, bouncer and some other really great gifts! I LOVE all of them! I love looking at them and can’t wait to put a baby in each of them! We love all of you for the support, love, gifts and prayers you have given to us. This is really becoming a reality and we can’t wait to share this journey with you all. My heart is in love with adoption. I am in love with becoming a mom!!

    In your post “something is missing” you said that you felt 8 months pregnant….I totally understand and it’s not silly at all! We adopted our precious Hannah Joy from China two years ago and for 16 months she grew in my heart….she was MINE when they placed her in my arms and it’s been the greatest thing we’ve ever done! I am so happy for you guys and pray that God’s will be done in your lives. May He bless you and your soon to be family of three! :0)

    Love, Kim P.

    I have no idea how I found your blog but I’m here and I know it’s God. We too have always thought we’d adopt. We just didn’t know when or God’s plan. I have a 2 year old son and have struggled for almost 15 months now to get pregnant. Even through that, we just didn’t feel like God was saying it was time…but now we do. We’ve both been convicted of it recently and we feel it is time. To be honest though, the whole process scares me. You should have my email since it had to be provided. I’d love any advice (including who you are adopting through) you can give.
