A BIG Thank You & Giveaway Winner Announced

I cannot say thank you enough for the abundant amount of support, love and prayers that all of you have bestowed upon our us with our adoption announcement.  

Many of you have provided us with family adoption stories, agency names, websites to visit and names of others who have been through the adoption process.  Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. 

Also, if you know of anyone considering adoption for their child, please let us know.  We've been encouraged to be as open about this as possible because it could potentially put us in contact with a birth mother and ultimately our child. 

Yesterday, we found out that the first part of our home study is scheduled for next Friday, July 6.  The tentative timeline for this is 45-60 days.  I warned the social worker that I move like lightning!  Now, we're officially on our way to becoming parents!  And isn't it amazing how it's all coming together?! 

We look forward to the day when we can introduce our beautiful baby to all of you!  But, in the meantime, we look forward to sharing our adoption journey with you!   
And before I forget, the winner of my 1000 Post Giveaway is: 

#121 Kara

Congratulations!

My heart is SO happy to read the news I just read!! What a blessing it is for you and Fred ... Knox, too! You are going to make a fabulous Mom. My cousins are adopted and my aunt always tells them you're a baby from my heart(versus from her tummy) ... thought that was always a great way of explaining adoption to them! :) Love to you all!

I know of someone who worked at a foot dr's office and was chatting with a patient who asked if she had kids. She said she was unable to get pregnant and wanted to adopt and they patient knew of someone considering adoption and the adoption is supposed to be finalized in July.
