We have done it! We have applied to adopt...from China! As many of you know, we have gone through the state foster care systems in Arkansas and Illinois, but never had a settled feeling about it. We knew God commanded us to open our home to an orphan, and we are finally down the path He has planned for us! We started our International Home Study on Friday, February 8, 2013. We have an overwhelming amount of paperwork, classes and appointments, but are forging ahead knowing that His great plan is perfect. We are so thankful for all of your support through our many years of prayer, planning, moving, and chasing other avenues for this adoption.
