75 Months of Anticipation

I've taken down the "Waiting to Adopt" ticker from the sidebar of my blog.


My Facebook Status explains why:

After over six years of waiting to adopt again including three different agencies and nine foster children (seven of whom have come and gone), THIS WEEK WE WERE ABLE TO ADOPT TWO OF OUR FOSTER CHILDREN (siblings) who have been in our care for over a year and a half, which means, among other things, that they are no longer our foster children but simply OUR CHILDREN! And I can finally show pictures of their faces now!
"Trust God and believe in good things to come." - Jeffrey R Holland


Our recent adoption brings with it some updated stats: 9:11:2.

9 refers to the number of years we've been doing foster care.
12 refers to the number of children we've fostered.
2 refers to the number of foster children we've been able to adopt.
