I'm taking a HUGE deep breath. I just got off the phone with the Illinois Department of Children and Families. We are going to Adopt! Oh my goodness. We have been married for almost 5 years and for whatever reasons, we haven't been able to get pregnant. I know that God is in control of this.
We have, of course had Hubby's 3 children, live with us for our first 3 years of marriage. (Full time) Since they went to live with mom, we have spent time getting to know one another in a much different way.
I have realized this one thing about myself. I can't be the type of woman, to just work and putter around. It all seems so aimless to me. I don't mean to offend anyone, if this is your lifestyle. I personally, just can't do it. I long for a child of my very own. And an adopted child, would fill that void. I have so much love to give.
Please pray as we begin this journey!! Pray that God will place us, with the child or children he wants us to love and encourage and share His love with. We are looking to adopt through the system. We had considered private adoption, but I think this maybe the best way to go. So many children need soooo much love.
In Christ Love,
