December already?? This year seems to have flown by. It seems like we were just discussing adoption and all of the details.

Today it seems that many have the question, Why would you adopt now? Well...not that I feel I must justify the question with any other answer than: because we want to. BUT...we feel like we were called to adopt. We decided many years ago that adoption was an option that we would pursue when the time was "right". At this time in ours lives we have a child getting ready to graduate from High School another one has entered High School and our youngest is 9. And we are so thankful that they all agree that the time is right to add to our family through adoption.

Last December we were looking at possibly trying to get 2 little ones from foster care. We discussed this option with the kids and they were ready to bring them home. Unfotunately, this fell through. The kids were very sad and concerned for these 2 youngsters. They worried about whether they would have a Christmas or not. I feel so blessed to have children who feel empathy for others. We knew then that we were ready to start the adoption process. We prayed and prayed and prayed about every detail. We feel God has lead us to a wonderful agency and to the country from which we are adopting.

We are very thankful and feel very blessed that we are able to adopt. We are looking forward to having another little one running around.

Lately, it seems that the adoption process is moving very slow. Through all of this we remain hopeful that God will bring our baby boy to us soon. We have Faith that God is in control of our adoption and that gives us peace.

We continue to ask for prayers as we continue "the wait".

We pray that you all have a Blessed Christmas!

Don and Tina
