This is the place where we are have documented the road we have walked in order to adopt our four children from Brazil and the road we are now on as a family. We are keenly aware that adopting is not just a process we've chosen to go through, but part of God's plan for us and for our children. May He be glorified through the process and through our family!

Frenzied Pace

Life here is moving at a frenzied pace as we prepare all the last-minute (hallelujah!) details for traveling to Brazil.  Packing, shopping, fingerprinting, paperwork for our jobs, paperwork for the adoption, paperwork for medical insurance, cleaning, organizing, visiting with friends we won't see for a while.  There are loose ends everywhere and we're doing our best to tie them all up... or pass them off to others who might be able to.  Then in the middle of all that, we get an email from our agency that sweeps us off our feet and reminds us what's really, actually going on here:

Just to share!!!  I got a e-mail saying that the kids are all excited,  
all they talk about is their "MOM and DAD."
