Adoption: Paperwork & Pictures

Posted on

Thank you so much to everyone who took time to write us such encouraging words about our adoption plans.  It means so much to have so many sweet friends out there praying for us!

As long as we’ve been talking about adopting & now planning to adopt, things are just now really getting started it seems.  And now that the ball is finally rolling, everything needs done, like….right now!  So, I have a mountain of agency forms & home study paperwork all over the kitchen table & I’ve spent hours staring at my computer screen trying to put together our adoption profile {if you don’t know what that is, it’s a scrapbook of sorts that birthmothers looks at to get to know prospective adoptive families}.  It’s been a little crazy at our house to say the least.

When I started to go through all of our pictures, looking for ones to use in our profile, I realized we didn’t really have any recent photos of just Caleb & I together, or at least not any decent ones:).  So, we decided while we were somewhat “put-together” for church yesterday, we’d have a quick, self-portrait taking session.  Here’s the best we could do:)…

Actual photographers out there, shield your eyes, I’m sure our self-portraits are painful to look at for anyone who knows what they’re doing!

I’m so sad I overexposed this pic, I love it otherwise!

If you’ve made it this far, thank you, you are very sweet!  Most people probably were thinking only moms & grandmas should have to suffer through looking at such pictures;).

  1. I love hearing about your journey. Someone or someones very near and dear to my heart will be traveling down this road in the near future and it is great to hear someone else’s experiences. You two have so much to give to a child. Looking forward to reading more of your experiences.

  2. I can’t believe it! On my way home from Carrie and Chad’s yesterday, I drove by the road to your old place by Palisade and was thinking about you both; just kind of reminiscing as I drove and thought, “I wonder if they’ve ever considered adoption?” Then I’m scanning through my fb posts tonight and there you are!!!! I will definitely be praying for you guys…God’s plans for our lives are perfect; just keep your eyes on Him. =)

  3. I love adoption! 4 of our grandchildren, and several grand nieces and nephews are adopted. We feel so blessed that God chose them to be part of our family. Will be praying for you.

  4. You did a nice job for taking them yourself! I’m impressed. Let me know if you want me to snap a few. I would do it for you for free. It would be good practice for me. Can’t wait to hear more!
