Our little boy Caleb doesn't need to be told twice when Daddy tells him to go "put on your boots"! He doesn't know where he's going, doesn't know how long it'll take or how much it will cost; All he knows is Daddy asked him to go spend quality time with him and that's all it takes for him to obey. We have heard the same request from our heavenly Father concerning adoption. We are embarking on this adoption adventure with Him not knowing the where and how; All we know is God wants to spend quality time with us and teach us who He is on a deeper level.

One year later

I know, I know, It's been way too long since my last post. Please forgive me :/

Since the last time I blogged, a lot has happened. First I have worked on the look of our blog. It is still in remodeling mode but a few new things are up and running. I have added some pages, most of them being descriptions and links to our different fundraisers (cakes, Rada cutlery, ChipIn). Click on their individual tabs above to see what I'm talking about. We also have a new blog address that is much easier to remember:

It's been a full year since we embarked on this adventure. All year long we have gathered necesssary paperwork and signatures. For whatever reason it took us longer than most adoptive families, but we believe God's timing is perfect. Maybe God has allowed this slow and steady pace just so our friends from church, Jonathan & Tiffany Stewart, would be able to catch up to us and maybe travel with us? That would be such a huge blessing to be there with them. We'll see...
To read more on our friend's adoption :

Minus 3 signatures and a few family pics, our dossier is ready to be sent out. We are pretty excited about that. It's all the more real now that our paperchase is coming to an end. It means we will meet our son very soon through what we call referral (4-6 months). A referral includes a brief description and a picture of the little guy. We pray our family is the best match for him.
