The Cat's Out Of The Bag!

As most of you know we have been trying for the last year or so to adopt children, through LDS Family Services, as well as "Foster to Adopt" through the State of WA.....


Well....


I am happy to announce that we are currently in the middle of adopting two little girls (ages 2 & 3 1/2 yrs old), that we received through LDS FS (though typically they only do infant adoptions). We have known about this situation for quite some time now and it's been so hard to keep our mouths quiet about it, only till we knew more and till it was going to be more of a for sure thing. We've started within the past week or two, to transition the girls into our home. This is a hard thing emotionally, not only for the girls, but for us as well.

This is an exciting time as well as a time of trial, for there is still so much to go through legally. We've appreciated your prayers on our behalf and will count on more until this comes to an end and we can finally call them ours.

We've been so extremely busy lately traveling back and forth meeting with birth mom and visiting with the girls and such; dealing with our case worker & lawyer and being emotionally stressed out to the max!....our minds can't think about anything else but these girls. It will continue to be like this for a while so emailing us with congrats will be greatly appreciated.....but I'm afraid phone calls will bombard us. I will try and keep everyone up to date on my blog as much as possible as well as post some pictures of the girls. You will be amazed at just how much they look like us!
