Well Ladies and Gents (if there are any who read this)...

I guess I should announce the reason for redoing our paperwork...

Am I Showing...
the answer is on my face, not my belly.

"A"arron has been adopted and we have started the process of adopting "B"ella & "C"indy.  We are actually quite shocked at how quick it was to finalize on "A"arron (and yes I will still be calling him by that name on the blog.. just for privacy reasons).    The girls are currently placed as a "Legal Risk Adoptive Placement" - meanning that there are some paperwork and legal things to clear up before we can finalize their adoption (this could take 6-9 months or longer), but they will stay with us .. which is good.

When we started the process of foster parenting.. I would not have guessed that this is where we'd be two years later.  Had you asked me then .. I would have told you "Oh we'll probably have 3-4 placements before we adopt."  I never would've imagined that we'd be adopting our first foster child.. or that that first placement would've been an infant.

And for those of you that are curious.. this is what a Paper Pregnancy looks like:


  1. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this post! I love the news and I love the way you announced it!! CONGRATULATIONS and God bless you all as your continue to grow as a family!!!

  2. Congratulations!!! So exciting!

  3. So glad to see this! I have been following you since the early days on WTE.
    We still have empty arms. Even though we have not given up on natural conception, we are becoming very fond of Foster/Adoption.
    I have gained encouragement from watching your journey. Blessings to you and DH as you continue to be a family.
