We're Approved!

The whole home study process is awkward! It seems so unnatural and yes unfair that we have to go through all of the little hoops to become parents. Don't get me wrong . . . I understand why we have to go through the process and wouldn't have it any other way.

I feel so blessed EVERY day that Jadon is in our lives. I still look at him 4 1/2 years later and can't believe that someone very special chose us to raise him. That person was an angel that God chose to carry our son for us and we are eternally grateful!

Now we wait for Holland #2 and are comforted with the fact that God is protecting that child the same way he protected Jadon. It is awesome to know that I can give it up to God (although I have to admit it is not always easy) when I worry about "what ifs".

Anyway . . . for now we have the letter . . . the letter that tells us we are approved! That is reassuring and exciting! Now we let everything happen in God's timing!


  1. Yippy! So happy ... although you kinda expected from the whole Cherokee Nation phone call. :)
