Type of adoption (agency, foster, private, open, closed, etc): Anything, I'm still in the research process. I'd like to either go through a private/open or agency/open adoption but I'm totally open to other kinds of adoption.
Where you are in the process: Still doing research, I'm trying to get some money set aside right now because I know Adoption is expensive.

Thank you to the wonderful ladies who mad the blinkies!

"The Lord compensates the faithful for every loss. That which is taken away from those who love the Lord will be added unto them in His own way. While it may not come at the time we desire, the faithful will know that every tear today will eventually be returned a hundredfold with tears of rejoicing and gratitude..... These experiences, while often difficult to bear at the time, are percisely the kinds of experiences that stretch our understanding, build our character and increase our compassion for others."

That's about where I am, except we've decided on private/open. I'd LOVE to talk some more. PM me or add me on FB (let me know who you are): Augie Grabenstein

What state are you in? I see that you have "My heart belongs in Washington DC." Are you close by?

Bio kiddos and ages: Brandon is 8 and Edward is 5 (6 in July)
Adopted kiddos, current age, and age at adoption: Twin girls, Emma and Ellie are 8 weeks old and placement occurred when they were three days old.
