We're Adopting!

Adoption-SymbolI've been holding out from sharing this for quite some time because I wasn't sure of what we could and couldn't say about the adoption process, but I'm happy to be able to share publicly that Lori and I are in the process of adopting internationally!!! I was recently given some guidelines from our adoption agency about the kinds of things we can share and what to avoid, so be on the lookout for some upcoming posts about our story and our progress. I hope you will enjoy the journey with us! Next week I'll give you some of the back-story and then subsequent posts will walk you through some of the steps we've taken in the process and let you know where we are right now. But for now, we simply ask that you rejoice with us, that God is opening the door for us to bring a child into our home in His perfect timing!

Congratulations Nathan to both you and your wife. I can tell the excitement in your posting. I know that this child will be very blessed to have parents such as you and your wife. Look forward to reading about your adventure and addition to the family. God Bless!!

Thanks for the kind words, Bob. I still haven't slowed down enough to post the full story, but I will do that pretty soon. It's been a very "interesting" year getting us to this point. Thanks again for your comments.
