On Our Way...

For those who didn't already know, Chad and I were finally officially approved for adoption. I get lots of questions about what happens next and how long it takes and there is not really a simple answer for that. We are trying to adopt through LDS Family Services and with this agency, the birth parents pick a placement. So in short, the wait could be 2 month or 2 decades! It just depends. The most important thing our caseworker has told us is to spread the word. Most adoptions these days come from someone who know someone. That's where all of our friends and family come in. We would be more then delighted if everyone could help us spread the word! We have created "pass-along" cards with our blog, email, and way to access our profile through LDSFS. We have sent them out with our Christmas cards this year and if you did not receive a card and would like to, or need some more pass-along cards, feel free to let us know. We hope and pray that the more people that support us in this, the sooner we will be blessed with our little one.

We have also decided to start a new blog since this blog is not always dedicated to just our adoption news. Our cousin-in-law, Anna, has been wonderful and helped us create a cute background and button for our new blog. You can view our blog Here! There is a button that you can access and add on your own blog and website if you want too! I'm not sure what will happen with this blog, chances are I'll still add things here or there so don't delete it yet! Thanks everyone for all of your support and we wish everyone a wonderful holiday season!
