A New Beginning: An Adoption Update

“Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end.”
Seneca (4 B.C.-65 A.D.)

“Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end.”
Semisonic (Closing Time- 1998)

Andrea and I went out for date night on Saturday. We had dinner at a local Mexican restaurant, and thanks to a really slow server we were able to enjoy a two-hour dinner together. Most of that time was spent talking about the closing of one era of our life and the beginning of a new era. This would, likely, be our final date night in our current family configuration.

If you don’t know- May is adoption month for us. We will be ending life as a family of five and preparing for life as a family of six.

We’ve been waiting for this month to come for some time. There has been the application process and the wait to be matched with a child. Honestly, that process took longer than we could have anticipated. But we are in the process of preparing to leave on a journey of two weeks that is, in reality, a journey for a lifetime.

While we have been slow on updates- whether on the blog or facebook- we are going to do our best to post updates over the next month here and be more active. If you’re interested in following along, follow this page for updates- or one of our Facebook pages so that you can stay current with what is happening. If you’re a praying person, we would love your prayers. If your not a praying person- good vibes are certainly welcome!

May is Adoption Month- and it is almost here!
