Paperwork, paperwork! And random thoughts....

We are finishing up our formal application. After that is the homestudy. Then the dossier...LOTS of paperwork!

On to more interesting things. We went to a HUGE fundraiser/yardsale a two weekends ago and got a set of dressers for "Adam's room" I tried to call it "the extra room" but everytime the kids talked about the room they called it "Adam's room" So, I decided not to fight a losing battle...."Adam's room" it is!!

It continues to boggle my mind that we know a lot about Adam and he doesn't even know we exist, at least for now. I pray for him everyday, I wonder what he's doing as the day goes by, I wish I could hug him. Adam is going through his day, not knowing how much we want him in our family!

Have a good weekend! Say a prayer for Adam!

My first foray into blogging!

I started this blog so I can chronicle our journey to adopt Adam. On November 2 our church introduced the program "50 Churches 50 Children". Our church is profiling 5 children for the month of November. Adam is one of those children. Adam is 10 years old and has been in an orphanage in China since he was one day old. Our 6 year old walked up to me, put the flier in my face. Then she pointed to Adam and said, "I want to adopt HIM!" Needless to say, I was floored. Mark and I prayed about it and we both felt led to adopt him. So, we have started the long process to start an international adoption. Please pray for us as we start this journey.
