Don’t Tell My Son That He’s “Lucky”

This post is a part of our Orphan Awareness Month series in November 2014 to advocate, educate, and spark discussion about topics relating to adoption and orphan care.  To check out the other posts in the OAM series, click here.   I’ve always loved fairy tales.  Although I was much more interested in climbing trees […]

The Last Two Days: High to Low …

We decided to chronicle our adoption experience in blog-form because 1) we wanted a record of it, 2) writing is how I process all The Feelings, 3) we wanted to honestly portray an adoption experience for anyone else considering or pursing adoption.  I am so glad we chose to do it!  It has been more […]

Updates & Prayer Requests

Update: The good news is that the document we have been waiting on from the Embassy in Warsaw (the Article 5) is finished. The bad news is that we haven’t gotten it yet because our attorney, bless her heart, fell off a ladder and broke her nose and got pretty banged up. Needless to say, […]

Imaginary Espresso

Baby Stuff!

For our readers that don’t follow our Facebook page, here are the updates we received yesterday: Unfortunately, we haven’t received our approval yet. Our attorney found out that two of the three people needed to give the final stamp of approval are currently on vacation. Bummer! However, the attorney was told that we can definitely […]

All At Once

Well, yesterday was another whirlwind day!  We are learning that the adoption process typically feels like A) nothing is happening at all, or B) everything is happening at once.  The “B” days are usually few and far between, so we are thrilled when they come around.  Yesterday was definitely a “B” day. From the get […]

The Game Changer.

Guys.  This has probably been the single most insane week we have had in our adoption.  And because God has a hilarious sense of humor, He scheduled this series of crazy during the week before VBS – the largest event of the year at our church, which I plan and oversee.  Thank goodness for a […]
