After much hesitation, we have decided to "go public" with a very personal (and wonderful) piece of our life. Our reservations stem from a number of reasons, solely selfish and mainly being out of fear. More specifically, fear of negative reactions from others and fear of not having all the answers to all of the questions. Those fears aside, we also have this overwhelming confidence from the Lord, and therefore, we are compelled to share this wonderfully blessed journey with you.
The truth is that this story of our life, is not ours, it belongs to the Lord. And it is extremely comforting to know that our faithful Lord has every detail carefully planned out. With that being said (ready, get excited!) the Lord has led us to pursue adoption! For some time we have been praying and considering options for our family and we have decided to begin with adoption as our first choice. We are thrilled that the Lord has opened this door with this opportunity for growth in our family!
We've begun the lengthy process through a foster adoption program. There are a number of unknowns as far as a timeline, but the Lord has given us peace with the unknown. And honestly, the mystery of it all has been one of the most thrilling things about the whole process (I do looove surprises (well, the good kind)). Anyway, we are extremely hopeful and expectant. Since late February when we stepped out and began this journey, it has been nothing but a big blessing. The Lord has often reminded us of his provision through it all, as well as his clear direction for it. This whole process is still very new for us and everyday we can hardly believe we're really in it. It's an incredible blessing.
So now we hope to share the many details of this adventure with any listening ear. That means I'm hoping to document the process on here as we have news to share. The blog will most likely shift to include more of our personal life (specifically this adoption journey) in the mix with our various vintage finds and decorating projects.
