Here We Go Again!

A few days ago we started the preliminary application process with the Dept. of Social Services to adopt again. We knew we wanted to start the process again at the beginning of the year and we felt we should look at different means of adoptin other than the agency we had used with Tess. The thought of doing all that paperwork again, the strain of waiting for the finalization, and just the stress that comes with adoption are not appealing at all but we know in the end it is all worth it. We would like to adopt a little boy and, wanting Tess the be the oldest, we would want to adopt a child under the age of one. We have not really talked about race as much this go around, but when I close my eyes and "see" my family in the future I envision a wonderful testimony of God bringing to himself every tribe, tongue & whatever that fleshes out to be in the form of a little be it! We covet again your prayers, for as many of you know, this was not an easy journey last time. But God is faithful and He is always working for our good! We will keep you posted.


  1. We will be praying! That is so exciting! I hope you guys are doing well and enjoying your church and community. Miss you all!

  2. we'll be praying for tess' little brother. thanks for your words of encouragement today. he's so much happier in the evening if he's had good naps that day. he just tends to be a little stubborn about naps sometimes. either way, he's still my little sweetie. i'm sure you feel the same way about your tess.
