We Have Some News…

Maison Everett Adoption AnnouncementIt’s been awhile, I know! Nearly two months have passed since we boarded our flight home from Tel Aviv. There’s been so much going on that I haven’t had time to sit and write. But now that we are more settled, I have some really exciting news I’ve been wanting to share with you…
Maison Everett Adoption Announcement
And we couldn’t be more excited about it! Greg and I used to talk about adoption when we were dating and always knew it would be part of our story – just not this soon. After experiencing two losses over the last year, we individually started to consider adoption as a way to grow our family. Short conversations turned into longer ones, and before we knew it we were both on the same page with all of it. It’s truly been incredible to see the way the Lord has prepared our hearts both individually and as a family. While we remain hopeful that I will birth more babies one day, we agree that if adoption is going to be part of our story, there is no reason to wait until we are finished having biological children. And so our adoption journey begins! 

We are in the beginning phases right now, which mainly consists of talking with adoption consultants and starting to work on our profile book. It will be a long journey over the next several months…in some ways, I imagine, similar to pregnancy! I know it will be emotional and trying, and we don’t enter it lightly. We trust in the Lord’s goodness and His plans. I’ve been really encouraged by other blogs where adoptive mamas have shared their stories, so I will try to do the same. Thank you to everyone who has already shared their excitement with us – we appreciate the prayers and support more than you know!

    That is fantastic news. We adopted and although it is scary it turned out to be the best thing I have ever done. She was a gift to me then and still is now.
