I just wanted to post to thank everyone for visiting my blog! I recently posted about it on my Facebook page, and the support and encouragement I received was wonderful. :)
I also wanted to point out my new tickers on the right side of the screen. I have one that is counting the amount of money in our adoption savings account. People ask me all the time how much it costs to adopt, and my answer is usually: A LOT! (unless someone is doing foster-to-adopt or adopting legally free children from the foster care system, in which case it is free or comes with minimal costs). In all honesty, we will pay about $23,000 in agency and legal fees in order to complete our adoption. We have been so blessed by God since we started on the adoption path - both Tyler and I have new jobs, which are going a long way to helping our savings account grow. We are so thankful for those jobs, and I can't wait to see what God does next as we move forward with our adoption.
The second ticker tracks how many of the 14 books our agency recommends/requires I have read. Tyler isn't reading all the books that I am, but he is about to start his first book. Hopefully that will get the gears moving and he will explore more books on his own.
I hope that you will continue to read our blog. We only ask that you send your thoughts and prayers our way - we still have a long way to go in this journey, and we couldn't get through it without the support of our families and friends.
