A new journey!

So I have decided to resurrect this blog to update whoever in the world might be reading this that we are adopting again!!!!  That's right our family is expanding!!!

We are so excited to announce that after many months of research and pondering (You must read Jen Hatmaker's series on the ethics of adoption if you haven't already)and researching again we have found an amazing program in the country of Lesotho.  Don't worry I had never heard of Lesotho either.  It is a small landlocked country inside of South Africa!  The government only works with 3 countries and Canada is one of them.  Anyways, I will post more about the process later.

We actually started our home study at the very end of September and finished it up five months later.

I am in the final stages now of collecting paperwork for our dossier to then be sent over to Lesotho and be translated.  Can't wait to say that we are "officially" waiting.

Here is a picture I took months ago in September when we mailed in our application to our agency Sunrise in Vancouver.  I can't believe how long it has been already, it seems like ages ago Holly had stitches in her forehead!
