I love revisiting some of the old posts on the blog. It is amazing to see how far this process has come and how near to our hearts Ethiopia was when we felt called to pioneer our way to Nepal. I’m grateful for the opportunity to write and keep track of so many of the thoughts and emotions we have been through as a family. I know other adoption bloggers have helped me through the questions and doubts of this journey. I hope to someday help someone else who has adoption on their heart and wonders if he or she can do it. I say do what you feel is right and do all you can with no regrets. We are given all that we need when we need it… don’t ever forget that. So below is a post from last September 2008. Funny how things can change and we really do have so little power.
Written September 2008:
After nearly two years of discussion, prayer and more
discussion it is with tremendous joy in our hearts that we announce our intentions as a family to adopt a precious child from the beautiful country of Nepal!
To some of you this may come as a complete surprise, although most of you are aware that adoption has been heavy on our minds and hearts for some time now. We feel very fortunate to now be working with the very agency that we first contacted nearly 18 months ago when were were merely inquiring about the process and/or the country options. All God’s Children is a remarkable agency with a heartwarming story of how personal adoption shaped their family and lead them to help others choose adoption.
