We finally heard that our dossier has been accepted in Honduras...
& we received our first waiting list number!!!

We are officially #76!

When I read the email, I was completely overwhelmed!  It finally felt "real" that we were adopting...
I literally felt pregnant, all over again.

Sadly, our kiddos were out of town & we had to wait a whole week to tell them.  We wanted to do it in person & not over the phone.

So, I did what any normal pregnant lady would do... I got on Pinterest.

I reviewed other adoption blogs, read more about Honduras, & searched the internet for photos of Honduran children.  Wondering at each glance... "Will her hair be that long?  Will her eyes be that beautiful?  How old will she be?  Will she have dimples...??"

So many questions & feelings....

For now though... we have a number.
And that number represents a life.

Thanks be to God.

5th Grade + Forever

I literally don’t have many memories before him.  
We’ve known each other since 5th grade.
10 years old.
The age that our daughter is now.
We were kids… babies, really.

Today we celebrate 13 years.
And, in our 27 years together… 
I’ve realized I could never live life without him.

Happy Anniversary, my love.
