January? That can't be right? We haven't posted since January? Whoops.
Actually, I'm not all that torn up about it. We have about 1 1/2 regular readers of our blog, so there aren't depressed and broken hoards waiting out in the blogosphere waiting on pins and needles for us to post again.
The truth is, we haven't had anything particularly exciting to share. We've just been living. Trying to keep 3 kiddos alive and well. Working. Baking. Watching season 2 of Mr. Selfridge. Sleeping when we can, which never seems to be quite enough. So, your average, (awesome!) American lives. I'm happy. I'm more than that. I'm satisfied and content. I'm fulfilled. I am blessed by my wonderful family.
So, why again, are we going to do something crazy? It feels crazy. It feels overwhelming. And stressful. And right.
Laura and I have decided to grow our family once again, and this time we plan to adopt.
So, we are officially announcing to the world that we are in the beginning stages of the adoption process. We don't know the child yet, but we are praying for her. We don't know when she will be ours, but we are preparing for her. We are terrified. And excited. And doing our best to follow God's leading plan in our lives.
Stayed tuned. We'll try and update you regularly. One reason I feel compelled to share is that while it seems that we only know people who know people who have adopted, we don't actually know anyone in our circle of acquaintances and friends that has adopted. Thus, if you are thinking, considering, or even wondering about the process - well, you know us, so let us be a resource (albeit totally untested) for you.
That's all for now. You may continue about your business.
