As many of you know, the past 6 months we have thought a lot about our future family. Being advised by our geneticist not to have any more children, we have spent many hours praying and thinking about what we should do. We feel like our Heavenly Father has directed us to adoption, and we are so very excited! When we began the process, we were planning on all the paperwork taking awhile, but amazingly we have been able to finish it all in only about 2 months. We have to finish up a few things (putting together our family photo collage and a home visit by our caseworker) and then we are ready...at least on paper. We cannot believe how quickly we've been able to get everything ready, but I honestly feel we have been guided through the process. It is all very exciting and, actually, quite spiritual. We are grateful for this opportunity that we have to add to our family through adoption. And there is no doubt in my mind that Samantha will be a great little big sister!
