Adoption...

It's time to finally release this news to the public... 

We are adopting!  

It's something that we have talked about for a long time now, but have decided that now is the time.  We completed our homestudy on Friday, which should be 100% finished by the middle of February.  We have an agency picked out, but are not opposed to going with a private adoption.  The social worker that was here on Friday encouraged us to spread the word that we are adopting.  She said you never know when something might land in your lap.  So we have decided to put it out there.  For the time being, we are moving forward with an agency, but financially we would love to have God place a private adoption on our hearts.  He knows what is best.  For now we wait...
I know a lot of people ask what we are looking for....
Honestly, we have no desires.  We are open to whoever God sends our way.  Madalyn is praying for a baby boy...breakfast, lunch, dinner, bedtime... lol.  She will admit that she will love him or her no matter what.  She sure is committed to praying though!  
Please pray with us as we continue down this road and keep us in mind if you happen to hear of someone in need!

So Exciting! Praying for you guys and we will keep our ears out. Are you allowed to contact Crisis centers? Just a thought. There is one here in Gowanda.
