Adoption Application Submitted

Pin It
Hubs and I just finished filling out our adoption application. We have picked Christian World Adoption for our agency. Tears were shed and prayers whispered. This was such a powerful and emotional act for me. We are really moving forward. After so many years of knowing that God wants me to adopt and now it is coming to fruition.

I am asking for prayer. I am a huge believer in God's amazing grace through the outcry of His people. Prayer for our baby out there in the world. That she (or he) will be safe, cared for, and well fed while she waits to come home to us. Prayers for patience for Hubs and I. Prayers for reliance on God for the funds to finance this process. For open hearts from surrounding family and friends as we bring home a beautiful baby to our family. Thank you all so much for stepping up to be prayer warriors for my family. It means so much more than you will ever know.



  1. Oh wow!!! Prayed for your family. Please keep us posted. I can't wait to hear about it all. How long does it generally take? Where will she/he be coming from?

  2. Thanks so much for the prayer Angela! It generally takes about a year. Hopefully it will be a girl. I am in desperate need of tu-tu's and pink around here. We are adopting from Ethiopia :D I am SO excited. I tear up just thinking about her. I cant wait to put my arms around that little person.

  3. I hope the process doesn't take too long and that your baby joins you soon. Curious too, where will your baby be coming from? Visiting from the weekend bloghop!

  6. Oh Amy, I am so glad you linked up so I could read this. This adoption process you are embarking on is so wonderful and I am praying for this little baby as I write. I pray all your requests over her/him and pray that God begins working on that little heart even now. And pray for you as you wait.

  7. You had me shedding some tears here! What an amazingly wonderful time for your family. My prayers are being offered. Thanks for sharing such an exciting time with us!

  8. I am new to your blog, visiting from On Your Heart Tuesdays. I will add your name to my prayer list. What an amazing adventure you are on and am so thankful you are sharing it.

  9. I think I would be dying of anticipation...I hope you get a little girl too (I am all too aware of the longing for pink and tutus). You deserve all of that joy!
