Room for one more !!!

We have been keeping a secret for a few months now, but we are finally ready to share. We are adopting a baby from South Africa!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We are beyond excited to finally share this news! Our file landed in South Africa today so that means we are officially waiting. We were told it would be approximately 15 months for a match, so we still have a while to wait but we are so happy to finally make it official. 

We started in September looking into our options and after a lot of prayer and talk, we decided our next child is in South Africa. We signed up for the program in November and have been working on our file since. Our home study took a long time and we have been waiting on it for a few months now, but it is all done now! 

We have requested an age range of 0-12 months and we are looking forward to either a boy or a girl! Isaac will be a big brother!!! We have been talking to him about brother or sister in Africa and we regularly pray for them. He doesn't really understand but we are trying to start the conversation so it can be a smooth transition for him. We are not only excited to become parents again, but we are ecstatic that Isaac will get to have a sibling. 

Please join us as we pray and wait. The waiting is never easy, but we know that God always has a plan. As we parent Isaac, we are constantly reminded of His goodness and grace. We anticipate as we wait for God's plan to unfold once again. 

That's all for now, I'll write more about the process and why we chose SA next time, but for now I want to post some of the beautiful pictures my friend, Denise took for us! She is always the best and captures the best moments :)
