BIG and EXCITING News!!!!

Photography by Life in Low Apertureย 

Since April, my hubs and I have been on a beautiful journey. ย Through lots of prayer, seeking wisdom from others, and more prayer, we have decided to adopt from the Democratic Republic of Congo!

We are so excited these days we can hardly contain ourselves! ย You may be thinking, “Since APRIL?” Yes, since April. While we shared our decision with our families immediately, we waited a little longer to tell our close friends and church family. ย We decided that it was time to share our exciting news with the world this week! HA!

You also may be wondering where we are in the process. We are currently waiting on a referral, which means we are waiting to be matched with a child. We gave very general specifications mainly because- 1. If we were pregnant, we wouldn’t get to choose a gender and 2. We have no biological children yet. ย We also are just trusting that the Lord will pick out a child JUST for us that fits our family perfectly!

My whole TpT journey has centered about our desire to adopt. ย I became at TpT seller after following Amy Lemon’s story. She was always encouraging and was the first to say, “Don’t be afraid. ย Do it. It is a blessing.” We have faithfully saved every penny, but it wasn’t until last Spring that the Lord was showing us WHY! God is just so good, isn’t he?!?!

I’m sure there is a lot more to share and say! For now, I just wanted to share our fabulous news!! ย If you feel led to, we would love for you to join us through prayer on our journey!

I hope you have a fabulous weekend!! ๐Ÿ™‚
