Here we go again...

We are in the process of completing our application to begin another adoption.  It mostly exciting, but it also makes me a little nervous and overwhelmed.  Nervous because there are so many other people hoping to adopt, and as I let that nervousness overwhelm me I can't help but wonder, how in the world will we be chosen again?  But at the same time I am hopeful and excited because I know it can happen.  Our little boy fit into our family just perfectly, so I have confidence that when the time is right, the right baby will be placed with us.

So now, I better get work on our application.  Thankfully we don't have to fill out as much paperwork as before, but it is still a process.  I will let you know when our application goes live.  It is probably still a few weeks out because we need to have another home visit, get reference letters sent in, and do a few other things.  But it is exciting that things are moving in the right direction.


  1. How exciting! I was so surprised at how quickly you got chosen last time and how smoothly it all went. May it be so again!

    And happy birthday to El Guapo!

  2. That's so wonderful! We are experiencing the same nervousness and hopefulness. Good luck to you on your next leg of the adoption journey!

  3. wow!!! so happy you are going again!!

  4. VERY EXCITING! A little brother or sister for El Guapo sounds great! I will look forward to following you along as you gear up to adopt a second child. Yeah!
