Home Study

We will be meeting our adoption practitioner for the first time on Tuesday. It will officially start the adoption process for us. I know that it will be a long roller coaster ride, but I am anxious to get it started. I'm also freaking out as well!! It's so so so scary to think that this woman holds the key to our child in her hands. Talk about pressure. Of course, anyone who's ever met me knows that I'm meant to be a mom...but sometimes that makes it even more stressful. When I interview for teaching jobs I always leave in tears...I love to teach...I love everything about it, but the stress of knowing that one principal who barely knows me gets to decide if I can be in a classroom is just too overwhelming for me! How much worse will it be with this lady deciding if I can have a child or not!?!?!?! I hope and pray that it's not too hard to bear.

It's such a comfort to know that there are so many people who are praying for us as we go through this process. God is good, and He will give us strength...I am praying that He provides constant reminders of that during the stressful times ahead.

Hey B ... I came across your blog from Caley's. I will be praying for you on this journey. You and Mark are going to be a blessing to some very lucky children! You will be a killer (and hot) mama. Love you.

P.S. I know you've been stalking my blog ... admit it.

B! I want you and Mark to know that Andy and I are praying for you every step of the way. I can't wait til the day you say your child is coming home. You and Mark are going to make amazing parents! You're very brave to be sharing your journey with us all, thank you.
