One year later.

This past weekend, marked one year of being in the adoption process. One year ago I thought we would be further along then we are now, but there is a reason for us being at the spot we are. One year ago we thought we were going to adopt maybe two kids, no older than 5 years old! One year ago we were at an informational meeting with Children's Home Society. So, here we are one year later, adopting with Bethany, waiting on immigration approval to adopt 4 kids, ages 0-14!
This year has had a true mix of adoption blessings and hardships. But, the truth is, this path is the one we're meant to walk down. And, any hardships we've faced our small to what our children have been going through this past year. We just try to keep that in mind and keep praying for them. Hopefully this time next year they'll be home with us.

Blog address change

Hey everyone! Just wanted to let you know that I changed the blogspot address for our adoption blog. Heidi kindly asked me this morning if the address (Ed and Amanda plus 4) was a take on Jon and Kate plus 8. Gross - it's not. But, with that crazy family in the news all the time I didn't want anyone thinking I was emulating them, so I decided to change it to plain old lebertadoption.blogspot.com

Besides, that name leaves us open to whatever kind of adoption God has in mind for us - no matter the number.

Thanks for finding us again!
