"Mailed It Off" Anniversary!!!

WOW!!! ONE YEAR AGO TODAY we mailed our adoption application off to AGCI!  On Monday, May 3, 2010, our application started the journey from Mississippi to the AGCI office in Oregon! Our adoption journey had "officially" begun!


Here is our family a year ago...


and here we are today...


minus this sweet baby girl!!!

This year has truly been one of the most AMAZING years of my life!!! And I can't wait to see what (and who!) God has in store for us in the coming year!  I love looking back at milestones in this journey! It's fun to remember where you have been, and see how far you've come, and look ahead in HOPE at what the FUTURE holds!

"For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you HOPE and a FUTURE." Jeremiah 29:11

Jeremiah 29:11 is one of my ALL TIME favorite promises from our Lord! You are so right. He really does have plans for all of us even when it all just does not make any bit of sense.

I have to agree, this process is LIFE CHANGING. Our baby has already changed our lives and taught us so much about God's love. To think, we haven't even met and quite possibly; he or she most likely has not been conceived. Shivers....

Happy 1 yr Anniversary!

Our "anniversary" is coming up too on May 17th! Feels like it's been forever ago since we mailed it off, yet feels like yesterday all at the same time. Praying for another great year ahead!

You mailed in your application the same day that our sweet Lydia was born! These girls are destined to be long distance friends :)
