"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11

Well, we just finished our Waiting Child webinar.  I was excited about it all day long, it was all I could think about.  Finally we would be actively doing something toward our adoption plan.  Amy and I have done quite a bit of research on our own so there wasn't a lot of terribly new information provided to us, but there was some stuff we had not yet thought about.  Plus we will be receiving a lot of information in the coming days that will correspond to the Waiting Child program.  The best thing to come from it was the definite feeling placed upon both of our hearts that this is indeed what God has planned for us.  When it was over, Amy and I pretty much looked at each other and nodded - yes!

Amy is actually filling out the application online as I write this.  I'm not sure exactly what the next steps to follow will be since neither of us are 30 yet, the age China requires all adoptive parents to be.  But it is for sure the next step for us in pursuing this blessed addition to our family.  The main thing that we will need to do is to decide what special needs we are open to including in our application.  After that???  

Ok, so I paused from writing this to help Amy fill out our application!  It is fully submitted and we should be hearing more in a few days from someone from Great Wall China Adoption, the agency we have chosen to work with.  We will see what then lies ahead once we know more.  We know there is still a long road ahead of us, but it will be easy to travel together now knowing that this is right for us.  

All is well, and confirmed now, here in Drosche Land!
