I don’t even know how to begin or what to say.

All I know is that God has put this longing in my heart, and in the heart of my husband and my kids. It is inexplainable. But it is real. That there is someone out there that is part of our family and now we just need to bring them HOME.

Some of you know that we have been praying about adoption, some of you know that I am adopted. Most of you know the reality of us having 7 (yes 7) kids already, and that David is (gasp) 50 and that I am a (very YOUNG) 43. Okay and I should mention that we are retired from the military and David works at Starbucks and I stay home and play-I mean-take care of the kids…So what are we doing even thinking about this????

I really don’t have a clue! I just know that it isn’t just me. I dream of this child. Maddy dreams of this child. Ron put a brother on his Christmas list to Santa last year. Kiley went a step further and asked Santa for a baby brother this year….You should have seen his face! :) We talk about this child as a “when” not an “if”.

So how is this going to happen? I don’t know! When is this going to happen? I don’t know! Why am I sharing this with all of you? I really can’t answer that either, but you seem to listen well, have good insights and possible direction for me.

Thanks for listening….

I'mlistening…praying..and excited!

I can't wait to see how this will unfold for you.

We just "adopted" a little boy through Compassion International. He doesn't live in our home…but we are so blessed to be able to do this!

Praying for you!

Thanks Megan! We have 2 Compassion children, too! I should count them in our family :) because they have been a part for a long time. We have loved being a part of their lives and them being a part of ours. Thanks more than you know! :)

Oh Kym, my prayers will be with your family. What a wonderful thing to "know". I am a Mom to two – Syds (15) and Sam (3) and I too have that longing for a child, I knew that someday..since I was a little girl..I would adopt a child…

Keep us posted. Love that God is leading you all down this path.

My prayers will be with you to find the right match for your family. I noticed the first, maybe 2nd time we met how much your children love other children :)It was great to see how they just naturally entertained my little person.
There are lots of opportunities out there for adoption, you just have to be open to the possibilities.
I continue to consider foster to adopt as an option for us. I will have to wait until I am no longer working for CHS before I can be considered for the program.
