This is the one thousandth post to this blog.
If I wrote 100 words per post, that’s 100,000 words.
And since I am not known for my brevity: if each post contains an average of 500 words, that’s 500,000 words. All since we began to move our lives to this little border town six years ago this month.
And what a better way to celebrate the one-thousandth post than to say this: We’re adopting!
It’s true. We’re hoping to welcome a little one into our home this year! We started the process here in Thailand in early 2016, and we’ve just been playing it by ear. We’ve completed all the medical exams, background checks, home studies, and nearly all the paperwork. There are just a few details to fall into place before we are officially on the waiting list!
And they gave us the oh-so-helpful information that on the list we could be waiting a few days or up to three years. So, hey!
Once we are placed, we’re required to stay in-country for about two years as everything is finalized.
And beyond that, we don’t know much. We are so excited that God opened our eyes to this opportunity, which we had no idea of just over a year ago. After years of talking about adoption, we’re able to actually take steps and see things forming, which is an incredible answer to prayer.
In a season where so much hope is required, here’s to hoping for one more little gift!
