3 Girls and 1 Boy?
So...we have begun a new journey in our family. We have decided to start the adoption process to add another child to our family.
With three young girls of our own, some might think we are crazy. And maybe we are. But I don't think so.
We truly love being parents. We adore the three children God has blessed our lives with. And we long for another in our family.
So the research has begun. We want to adopt domestically, and we would like to adopt a baby boy. We have found agencies that have accepted us, but they want all their fees up front, so that isn't an option. We are looking at the foster system, a majority of their adoption process is free, so that might be the way to go, but we would have alot of boundaries in the foster system, because we don't want to bring a child into our home, if he isn't going to stay forever, it would be too damaging to our girls.
So as you can see, we are all over the place. We know in our hearts that another child will be brought into our family. When, how, and where, is the unknown.
But with our faith, we know it will be when it is right. We know that we will be ready, and we know that it will be God's plan. Not ours.
