We are Moving!

We are so excited to move and see all that God has for us next, but I can't help but think of all the memories this house holds. If these walls could talk, they would have so much to say. Some of their words would probably surprise you, some would make you cry, some would make you laugh hysterically, and some would make you think deeply. Life has happened here. I thank God for providing us with this place that we have called home for the past 7 years and for teaching us so much about ourselves and each other while we have been here. I'm so thankful for all of the friends and family that have entered and shared memories with us. 

 When we started the adoption process, we never would have guessed that it would have taken this long. We worried that moving could impact our adoption, so we tried to wait. As we prayed and sought God about next steps, we felt confident in selling the house. We trusted that in God's time the house would sell, and the adoption would not be put on hold. Right now, we are on the house hunt for a place in Missouri. Please pray that we find a place and that the transfer of all our documents will go smoothly. We will have to redo all our paperwork for the state of Missouri, and we will be working with a new social worker. Though this will be a lot of work and more money, this process has taught me not to fear and think of the worst case scenarios, but to continue to live.  Although I am waiting for something, I can't stop living. For us and our future family, we feel we are making the right step. Thank you for your continued prayers and support.
