Extra! Extra! Read all about it!

We picked an agency!  After what seemed like forever...we did it!  We came across Adoption Link, Inc. through a friend at work and decided this was the best fit to start our family.  Once we made the decision to adopt through Adoption Link, Inc., things started moving quickly!

We sent in our initial paperwork, were accepted as clients a few days later...met with the director of Adoption Link, Inc. a few weeks after that and are now in our home study phase!!  We feel so incredibly blessed to have this opportunity and truly feel that this is the best plan for our family at this time.

We have been diligently working through all the necessary home study paperwork and see the light at the end of the tunnel!  We are finished with all the needed documents!  Now we are focusing our attention on completing life books of our life together and it is a joy to see some of the activities of our past through our pictures.  It makes us incredibly excited to add children into future photo memories.

Just this past Friday, my amazing coworkers threw Jake and I a surprise baby shower!  We felt so blessed and humble at the love that was shown to us!  Our nursery is now becoming full of wonderful things for our future little is so fun to look at every time we walk by their room.

We cannot wait for the next step in our adoption journey and can only imagine what is in store for us next!  This process has been wonderful and we are certain it will only get better as we get closer to meeting our birthmother and welcoming our child into our home...
