We are ADOPTING!

"Those who were not my people I will call 'my people', and her who was not my beloved I will call my 'beloved.'" 
{Romans 9:25}
That's our next child's verse that God has given us for them. I love it, because it is a promise for the people of God. It reminds me that I was once very far off from knowing who God was, but he now calls me his beloved. I was once not part of God's family, now I am. Our next child will be called our 'beloved' and it will be part of our family, equal to us. Traylor will be it's last name. It will be 'my people'.

I just wanted to write a post about our adoption process, just to explain how this is going to work. Basically, I have decided to update any and all information regarding our adoption on our family blog. Even though, I support two wonderful families here, that I have been completely slack about highlighting lately on this blog, it just makes more sense to keep all the adoption information in one place, and since our families mainly read that blog, it's the better choice for updates regarding our adoption process and keeping friends and family informed.

I tell you all of this for a couple reasons. One is that you may want to read about our adoption and keep in the loop.

If that is the case, you probably want to subscribe to our family blog by clicking that link and scrolling down to enter your email address or add it to your reader, if you don't read it already. I post a lot more about our family over there and it's your typical "baby" blog. I post updates about our son, our weekends together, and now our adoption. It's been following our family since it started 3 years ago.

Another reason why you may want to know is that in 1 and 1/2 years (hopefully sooner!) all of a sudden a new face is going to pop up and you may go...uh what? They adopted? I just don't want that to be a complete shocker to you! haha!

So, if you officially want to stay in the loop you can read this post about our excitement starting it all, and then a more recent "where we are at on this journey post".

With all that said, please join us as we start a journey that is unlike any we have ever gone on before!
Thanks!
Oh, and pray it's a girl, so I can make cute girl outfits to show off to you. That would be fun. haha!
