John & I got to have lunch with my long-lost roomie Robyn, her husband Mike, and their new baby! We haven’t seen them since our wedding (3 years ago0 and we so excited to find out they were in town this weekend! It was so refreshing! I just love friends that you may go months (or years) without seeing them in person but when you do its like you were never separated. I triple puffy heart them so much and wish they weren’t in Kentucky while we are here!
And we also made a big adoption decision………we have decided to pursue domestic adoption for baby #1 as we are running into alot of roadblocks with international adoption due to age, marriage length & health concerns. So we are hoping that when we are ready for #2 (if we are so fortunate) that we will go back to IA. Last night during our prayer time at church I was pouring my frustrations out about all of the roadblocks and emotions and it was like God reached out and gently reminded that there are no roadblocks for Him and that He had our baby picked out especially for us. I just feel so re-energized. I was feeling so defeated this weekend & ready to throw in the towel but now I’m back on the wagon and ready to get this started! We will be submitting our preliminary application this week! Eek!
