New Adventure

Scott is starting his new career in just 3 days! He will be a high school social science teacher. Although this means more stability and comfort for our family, it also means we cannot travel for long periods of time at the drop of a hat.

My husband and I are starting a new adventure. We love our children in Poland, but realize there is no possibility of a future.  They will be loved forever and prayed for often.  We have seem to have hit every possible road block on our quest for a family! Our hearts are still wide open to adoption, but we are focusing closer to home.

This is a new leaf in our life. We are pursuing infant adoption through LDS Adoptions. This could take a few years, but we have waited that long already. We have learned to cherish each and every moment with each other and each child that we are blessed to come in contact with. We are grateful for all the support we have received from friends and loved ones.  Thanks to all the women at church that let me hold your sweet babies.

Looking back, I thought it could all be planned out and put to a time schedule. I do not consider myself to be controlling or demanding, but I do like life to be predictable and for things to progress at a certain rate. Life is unpredictable, and no one I know has a crystal ball. I have checked!

You can help us out. If you hear of someone who is pregnant and considering adoption, you can refer them to this blog.  We will soon put a profile in itsaboutlove.org. I will let you know when it is up and posted.  Thank you as always! We love and appreciate you!
