We are approved X TWO

Today we received the email we have been waiting for. We have been officially approved by Gladney to adopt! We had our homestudy about five weeks ago and it went really well. Andrea was very sweet. I really wasn't as nervous as I thought I would be. It was no big deal, which is what I had heard. So, now we must continue to work on our dossier. We hope to be on the waiting list by mid to late October.

So, now for the big announcement.... WE ARE ADOPTING SIBLINGS! We had been going back and forth trying to decide what would be best for our family. We decided that adopting siblings would be best for our children and family as a whole. We have been approved to adopt two children under the age of four, however we have requested that they be under the age of three. We are very excited about this decision. We know it will be a huge adjustment, but it will come with so many blessings.

That is all for now. I hope everyone has a great Labor Day Weekend.
