Well, we just sent an email to all of our family and closest friends explaining God’s call for our family to adopt. Mark and I sat here for a few minutes, hesitating to actually hit send. It’s a strange, but certainly gratifying, situation to post something so publicly that we’ve discussed so privately for the past few years. It may seem strange, but some of our thoughts and emotions in that email are extremely personal, so it was hard to let it go. There’s a lot of people now to hold us accountable to God’s call and to support us in this journey. And what a journey it will be! Hard to believe there is a little life out there somewhere that God intended just for us. My prayer right now is that our email is received with an abundance of excitement from those that mean the most to us. We can also use all the prayers we can get now and throughout this process!!!
