We are excited to share with you all that we have started the adoption process for baby #2!
Many of you prayed for us while we went through the process the first time and rejoiced with us when we brought Jaxon home. Only a few months after Jaxon’s adoption, people started asking if we would adopt again. At that time, we honestly were not sure. We felt God’s guidance through each step of our first adoption – leading us to open adoption and to our agency. We felt His direction through it all and we wanted Him to direct our steps through any future children. We’ve continued to pray for more children, even asking God to allow me to become pregnant, and once again we feel Him leading us to adoption.
We have had our initial meeting with the agency and began the mountain of paperwork. We will attend a training the first week of December and have already started planning fundraisers. At this time, we would covet your prayers over this adoption.
We would specifically love prayer for:
- Through each step we place our trust and hope in the Lord. We experienced the loss of a child through our first adoption, so there is some anxiousness with beginning again.
- Jaxon as we are walking him through this process. It has been a beautiful way to talk about how God brought our family together.
- Our future baby and the birthparents. That through whatever circumstances led them to consider adoption, the Lord would provide peace and comfort to their hearts as they make that decision.
