the plan


Over the last couple of months I've talked to multiple agencies, looked at a million sites, considered multiple countries, done a lot of soul searching, and we have come down to only this: China.  And not just China, but special needs.  
  We are hoping to get a little girl, no older than 3.  To say that we are excited is an understatement!  My husband and I literally get giddy when we talk about it.  Our oldest two children are excited, however, they have high expectations.  For example, my 4yr old would prefer that we get a boy with leaves on his ankles ~ thank you creators of The Odd Life of Timothy Green! :)
In all seriousness, the kids are super excited!
So this week our task is to fill out our agency application, select special needs that we feel we are equipped to handle, and itemize our assets.  That last part will be the most difficult!  We have a lot of "stuff"!  Wish me luck with that one! 

If you know of any families out there going through the same stages as my family that have a blog, link me up with them! I'm sure that I'll be able to use the encouragement through out this journey, and will love having someone to talk to who knows exactly what I'm feeling.  

Let the journey begin!!!!!
