We have big news.


Friends, it is with great excitement Brett, the girls, and I want to share that we're adopting!

Long before Brett and I even met as young adults, the seed of adoption was planted in both of our hearts.  Once married, it was no surprise at all when we began to discuss building a family, adoption included.  We might not have known how or when or where, but we knew adoption would be woven into our family story. 
Fast forward to a couple of years ago…through scripture, prayer, and various other avenues we felt the call of adoption getting louder and stronger, yet still the time wasn't quite right. We just had that feeling to hold on and wait.  And so we did, continuing to cover this chapter of our story in prayer. 

Last July, something clicked.  Brett and I both absolutely knew it was time.  We attended our first meeting with Bethany Christian Services and have been steadily working on paperwork, book reading, online courses, and home studies ever since.  I am happy to say we are almost officially (like so close) to being a "waiting family."  And then we do just that.  We pray for our baby, our birth mom, and to be matched at just the right time.  We don't know if it will be one month or one year. 

In the meantime, we're delighted to share our news with you!
We are beyond excited to see what God has in store for us this year.
