Aren't we cute?
The middle picture is one that we sent with our application to our adoption agency a couple of months ago. It is one of the pictures I presume they have been praying over as they considered the "on paper" Merrifields. On March 23rd we will go in for a pre-screening interview to see if we are "accepted" by our agency to move forward in the process.
Our plan, God willing, is to be matched with an "emancipated" child here in Washington State. This is called "foster/adopt", which is not becoming a foster parent but rather adopting out of the foster care system.
I am having a hard time mentally going to the place where I admit that "my" child may be alive and around somewhere...so why not just come on out and say it on a blog! :) Phew... and, closely following is the "Oh, Lord..."
There's just SO much to consider and PRAY about with this!!!!
