The Journey Starts Now!

I am sure you all know the verse "Trust in the Lord with all of your heart and lean no on your own understanding, but acknowledge Him in all your ways, and HE will direct your paths." This verse has been made real in my life this last week. As many of you know, Erick and I have been led to seek adoption through foster care. But the Lord has decided to open another door at this time and we feel that we are being led to begin the adoption process for a domestic adoption. We are still going to be foster parents.

The reason we didn't first seek the adoption route was because of financial reasons, but like I said God has opened a door and we are going to walk through it. We are going to be having our first homestudy this Wednesday! The agency that we are going with says that this process may take 6-10 months!

So I will fill you in on when we get our Foster babies, and as the process of adopting our own baby comes as well!

Pray for us,
Jen and Erick
