It's all getting very real...

Things have definitely moved into high gear. I have been working with Reece's Rainbow and the adoption agency for the last week or so. I honestly believe I've found my daughter. Because nothing is completely official yet, I am not really at liberty to post too much information about her. I will definitely post a picture and some info as soon as I can. I know that you will all fall in love with her as quickly as I have.

The next step for me is to begin my home study as soon as possible. I will be researching options and agencies tonight and calling lots of places tomorrow. Once that is started, I can officially commit to my daughter and start working on details and paperwork.

I'm very excited about this next step in my life. I originally decided I wouldn't talk to too many people about it until things were more definite but I just can't wait. So many things are coming together really quickly. I want to keep everyone who is interested updated on my progress. I also want a place where I can look back some day and see it all come together.

I've had lots of offers to help and babysit. The biggest thing I need right now is prayer. Pray that things will work out smoothly and quickly, as they have so far.

Check back often for more information as I can post it.

    We love the whole idea- so many children that need someone to love & care for them and you are so experienced & willing- and another child will have the opportunity to grow up in a Christian home!! God is Good, All the Time- no matter how quickly this does or doesn't become a reality. So very exciting- keep us posted!!

  3. Definitely praying for you and so excited to have another niece!

  4. Wow, this is exciting! Can't wait for God to finish this story.

  5. Wow! How exciting!! I am so happy for you and this precious little girl! Will be praying!
