Eight is NOT Enough!

So, I figure you might have guessed from the previous post with our blog button....we are expecting "twins"!! We are so excited! The country where Luke(this will be his new name!) is from, allows the adoption of two unrelated children if they reside in the same orphanage. Luke and Irina are not biological siblings, but they have been together since they were babies. Irina is just 2 months younger than Luke. As we prayed for direction, both my husband and I felt certain that the Lord was asking us to also bring home this precious little girl. We are so thrilled (okay, and honestly a little fearful at the thought of the challenge of having preschool aged twins).

Things are moving along with our process, although never as fast as one would like. Our home study is complete, and we are waiting for our immigration preapproval. We are working at gathering all the paperwork for our dossier (groan...I do NOT like paperwork) and we have to get some grant applications done ASAP. We knew stepping out on this journey that the Lord was going to have provide the funds in some miraculous ways, and now we need some additional funds for our sweet daughter. I promise I'm going to try to be much better at updating this blog than in the past!

Such awesome news, Amy!! I'm grabbing your new button and I'm looking forward to following your blog. I think you guys should move here to FL where I'm fairly certain we don't have a legal limit to the # of adopted kiddos per family. We could be neighbors :)
