I do not envy people with office jobs!

I have just spent my second full day in a leather office chair, around a conference table, watching slides go by rather slowly and listening to various people talk and talk some more. I have been away from my twin girls both days and am ready to be a mom again.

I am exhausted. Both mentally and physically. Thankfully, it's the weekend.

To put it plainly, these classes are part of our journey towards adoption. They are required for international adoption. For a few years now, both Jacob and I have been praying and seeking God’s will for our family. We have wanted to adopt for some time and it seems that God is working alongside us and directing us as we work towards that goal. And we are really excited about this!

I’m sure this will feel like such a tease, but for now that is all that I have to share. We don’t have any particulars in place, no specific child we have chosen, not even where we will be adopting from has been decided.

We will share more as we know more.

For now, we covet your prayers for us as a family. Your prayers mean a lot and we look forward to sharing more soon.

Very excited for you guys! Its funny I just resigned from my full time job in April, and the first few months I really missed being in the office.. but now I can't imagine going back. But for you this will be worth it when you are holding a little one in your arms! :)
