We're Adopting! :)

So for those of you who don't know yet, I sent out an email last week annoucing our big news that we're adopting! Here is an excerpt from the email:

In other exciting news, we have started the adoption process! This is something we have been praying about for awhile, and feel this is the direction the Lord is leading us right now. We have applied with a domestic agency in Arkansas and are in the early stages of the approval paperwork process. Once that and a few other things are completed, we will be added to a list of prospective families for birth mothers to choose from. They say the average wait time is 2 years, but since there isn't technically a "waiting list", the time frame can vary greatly. That being said, we are also praying and believing that God would direct us completely in this process, and are open to whatever He may bring our way. I have several friends who have adopted children by hearing of an opportunity through a mutual friend. We know that God already knows our baby and when/how we will be connected, so please join us in praying for direction and wisdom during this process, as well as any additional opportunities that may present themselves for a private adoption.
