Finishing up our home-study #2


We are finishing up home-study #2. 

The process was very similar to the first time around. LOTS of paperwork and LOTS of gathering documents. 

The good news is that a sweet little boy calls us "mama" and "dada" and fills our days with joy. Every form was worth it for the blessing of our sweet Lucas!!!

So after physicals for all three of us, CPR training, getting the cat's shots updated, and reference letters from friends, pastors, and employers (you know who you are...many thanks!!!) our home-study is almost done!!! Woot woot!

We now need to create a new profile book and pay our Program #1 fee (eeeek...definitely a leap of faith) and we will be an official "waiting family" with our agency. 

To everyone who has walked with us on this journey, we love you and are so grateful. Thank you so much for your prayers!

If you know anyone considering adoption for their baby, please share our information with them.


  1. So exciting, you guys!! Praying for you!!

  2. Wow! That seems to be going so quickly. We started our home study last December, and our report is still a work in progress. (So glad that yours is going quickly, if a little jealous.)

  3. Wow, you two move fast! Prayers for peace throughout this process.

  4. Praying for you guys on your journey to #2!

  5. I am a birth grandmother. Our daughter gave up her child for adoption 17 years ago. He has a wonderful family and is doing great. Our daughter gets a cd of pictures of him and his family every January. It is such a joy to see how he has grown. Good luck on find a mother willing to surrender her child to your love and care.

    1. Thank you so much for sharing! What a beautiful story. God is so good. Thank you for your kind words.
