Here We Go Again...

Are we crazy?

We have just completed our international adoption and have been home with our son for just a few months.  However, another child waits for us!!!  We have known that this child existed for over a year. Actually we have know about them from our first trip to Poland.  Our son has a younger sibling. They have just recently become available for adoption and we are going to bring them home.

We(well I) have always wanted 4 children.  Who knows if that will ever happen but I do know that right now we are going to be a family of 4.  This means lots of things are going to be happening. First, we have to get a bigger house.  Our little 2 bedroom home that we have literally put blood, sweat, and tears into remodeling will not fit a family of 4.  So we are moving!  Second, we are diving back into the paperwork of international adoption.  I feel so much better this time around having already done this before and knowing the process.  Third, we are trying to wrap our head around how we are going to pay for this again. We fundraised so much last time and so many people donated money.  How do you do it all again? There is so much more that is going to happen it all can't be put into writing.

So are we crazy?  Many people I am sure think we are, but this is were God is leading us. That means that this plan is perfect even if it seems crazy.

11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. 12 Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.
Jeremiah 29:11-13 NIV

6 Months Together

In just a few day we will have been reunited for 6 months and home for 3 months.  Wow time flies!  I can not believe how much our little man brightens our lives.  When we have had a bad day at work that simple hug when you come home makes it all go away. 

We truly can not imagine life without him.  We waited so long for him I still sometimes can't believe he is ours.  I have said before that it all has been worth it.
