So let the games begin! :) We are very excited and feel like God has orchestrated these steps perfectly. So now it's time for me to get started on our Life Book! While it will be a lot of work, I'm actually excited and think it will be a neat keepsake and walk down memory lane for both Pat and I. More to come soon! :)
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.

Mom, here are the artichokes I was telling you about. You like? For everyone else, these are my new decorating obsession. Saw them first in a high-end decor store that was ridiculously out of my budget. Then lo and behold, I stumbled across these yesterday at Hobby Lobby...color me giddy! :)
So I'm trying to send this from my phone. Blogger says if you just email it, it will post automatically. If this works, I certainly don't have an excuse for being a bad blogger anymore! We'll see... :)
