Great news guys (and gals)!! We have completed our home study for both international and domestic adoption. They went great. We are truly blessed to have Becky (our social worker) on our side through the process. She is amazing.
As most probably know, we are not picky as far as where our children will come from. Unfortunately we were forced to choose a country for international, so we have chosen Ethiopia. There were many factors that went into that decision, much of which will make this post way too long :) Thankfully for domestic we are able to leave the door open on ethnicity and gender, so pretty much any little booger He wants to give us is all right with us.
From here, we are going to begin fundraising. We are open to anything so feel free to share any ideas you may have.
God is going to provide what we need. There is no doubt in our hearts. No one can stand in the way of God's plan. We do ask that you keep us in your prayers through the process. It's going to be tough, but with the love and support of our friends and family, we'll make it through to the end.
