Randy and I have decided to seek help from an adoption agency. So we got the big packet in the mail today. :-) It was like getting the notebook for the homestudy all over again. But I think this one will be more fun--there are pages full of questions about what we like, don't like, what we believe, how we deal with everything from traditions to discipline. I kinda feel like we already answered these questions, but it will be fun to go back through them again, I'm sure.
We decided to move to working with an agency because we just didn't feel like we could network enough for ourselves the way we were going. It would be great if I didn't have to go back to work, but teaching calls me, and I have to answer her siren song. :-) So wish us luck! We are going to be working with Adoption & Beyond, out of Overland Park, Kansas. They completed our homestudy for us, and were there for us through our first private adoption as well. If we can make a match without them, it would save us a ton of money, and I think it would also be a great way to make a connection with a birthmom. So keep your fingers crossed, and your prayers going up, that we will find the birthfamily that was meant to be part of our family. I pray every night that God will bring us together some how. I know that He will. He is so good!
