A NEW CHAPTER

So today Carter and I are leaving Gabe with a sweet new friend from our church here in Norman, and we are venturing our way up to Edmond for an interview.

About 6 months ago we began the process of adopting a baby. When we started we were in the International program, but a couple months later I had a miscarriage and the Lord used that time in our lives to change some things for us. So a couple months later, we pulled out of the International program and are now trying to decide what Domestic program we want to go with.

Today we have an interview with a very small agency in Edmond and on Thursday evening we have an orientation with a fairly large agency in OKC. We started the process of our home-study about two weeks ago, and are currently trying to complete all of that paperwork. We couldn't be more thrilled about what the Lord is doing in our lives and the new chapter that is opening up for us.

Please pray with us and for us, that the Lord opens and closes doors that are obvious for us to follow and that we are obedient in every step of this journey! Also I would ask you to pray for this baby that is waiting for us, whether it be born already or yet to be born...that he/she would be kept safe from harm and from the reality that this world has become; and pray for the birth mother that the Lord would bless her for making the most difficult decision a mother could ever make and that she would practice good choices while carrying her baby!

I know that that was a lot! I appreciate all of you...and love you!

Pasha - we are having some trouble conceiving and adoption is a DEFINATE possibility. We aren't quite ready yet, but we really feel like even if we have a child of our own we still will want to adopt. Will you keep me posted on what you find out and your experience. I think that's awesome! And you guys will be in my prayers!
