We’re On Our Way … It’s National Adoption Day

November 20, 2010 at 9:00 am 5 comments

Well blog readers,

It’s time. I’ve been holding off with the news for a few months. I think we’ve needed time to soak it all in, to really let it sink in that our lives will dramatically be changing. But with a day such as today, National Adoption Day, we’ve decided to REALLY go public!

Yep, we’re adopting.

Our process is in full-force and we’ve begun heading down this strange road called parenthood. We’ve chosen to work with a large national agency that’s actually headquartered near us and pursue a domestic adoption. The kiddo will come from one of the 50 US states, and we’ll most likely bring home the baby from the hospital.

We’re pretty excited, and like I said, still getting used to the whole idea. We’ve enjoyed the lifestyle of young marrieds for so long, but knew that God was calling us to turn the page, and enter a new chapter. We’re also excited at the thought of integrating a new race into our family; as we’ve requested a transracial adoption.

So there it is! What a day to celebrate! While the blog will still say health and colon focused (don’t worry, poo stories are not going away), we’ll definitely keep you updated with our process!
