If you did, you can proceed! ;)


This will be the first time I am posting about "our JOURNEY" on my blog. I have talked about how we WANT to, but today marks the first day we are going to talk about it!

Adoption.

A word that is near and dear to my heart. A word that means SO MUCH to my husband. 



christmas 2011

When I was 7 or 8 I began to talk about how I was going to  adopt when I got married.  I didn't think about praying for the man in my life to have that longing... I just knew it was something I was going to do with my husband. He was in it no matter what. 
When Zach and I were engaged I began to tell him my ideas. 
He wasn't excited. He said he never thought about adopting.  I was on the HIGH CLOUDS OF LOVE/ENGAGEMENT,  so I didn't think anything of it. 
We got married, knew we wanted kids earlier than the "Normal American" waiting time. 
We found out we were pregnant with Tristan on January 1st, 2009. 
Tristan took our hearts instantly. He was the cutest thing I had ever seen. 
Zach's heart began to heal every time he would hold Tristan. WE call him our JOY, because after everything we have been through this past 2-3 years. He has brought so much JOY in our lives. We laugh until we cry with what he is saying/doing. 

We announced we were pregnant with Livia at Tristan's 1st Birthday Party.
She was a gift straight from the beginning. I knew in my gut she was a girl.
When she came into our world... Zach's heart leaped as he saw her for the 1st time.
It was VERY emotional. 
Tristan- Our 1st born son. OUR JOY. A gift from Him.
Livia- Our 1st DAUGHTER. A gift. Our treasure. 

Zach's heart began to heal while raising these two beautiful kids. 
Liv is almost at the 9 month mark. Tristan is 28 months. 


Our dear friend, Amanda, who just recently joined BLOGGER. Go FOLLOW HER! 
spoke at church in November. It was "ORPHAN SUNDAY"...
She is a VOICE to this generation about orphans & foster care! 

Here she is with her beautiful family.
Oh & masculine. 
:)

She is our ANGEL. She is helping us & guiding us along our JOURNEY.
We love her so much. So, head over and FOLLOW her blog. 
She's an UP AND COMING blogger.




Today we went & got prints done. Yes, I had to go to the Sheriff's office & get printed. 
we had to go around "back" to the jail to get printed.
Superman said to me...
"This is a place I bet you never, ever thought you would be walking into."

But every step was worth it. 
:) 

Our family has a lot of love. I am excited to be on this journey. 
God knows.
