I am bursting at the seams about....

Soooooooooo... after trying to keep this a secret long enough, I am about to burst at the seams, I just can't hold it in anymore....

We are ecstatic to announce....


Yes! God is so good! OK, so here's the low down,

  • We are gathering stage- gathering all info for the huge application, doing fingerprints, gathering references and just every.single.detail about our lives to get down on paper.
  • I will write about our adoption journey because Lord knows I've been reading every article, blog post, and snippet on adoption I can get my eyes on, so I want to share our journey for others! 
  • We ask that you pray for us, that God guides us every step of the way. Pray that our child, wherever he or she may be in the world, knows love is coming. Just any prayers you can think of for this journey we are on and for us, they are most welcome. 
  • This will take A WHILE, so just keep those prayers coming and I will update you as soon as I can!
EKK! I'm going to go dance around now. Enjoy your day!

P.S., A DIY tutorial on how to make your own egg announcement is coming soon! AND- if you'd like to support our adoption process- check out my Etsy shop, all proceeds go to the cost of adoption!

  3. Congratulations! As someone that just got through all that paperwork, I can tell you that at times, it's super overwhelming. Just take a step back, a deep breath, and dive back into it when you're ready. We just finished our home study and our profile goes live to Birth Parents tomorrow morning. If you have questions or just need to vent on the process, I'm here. I am so excited for you to start this journey. So far for us, it's been amazing and eye opening but now the really hard part starts....the waiting! Congratulations exciting!
