So, DH and I have discussed and prayed and decided we will start the adoption process. We are going through our DHR in Alabama. We have filled out our application and I'll mail that tomorrow. We have to go through some classes that start the beginning of February. We might look at doing some individual classes because DH works evenings and he might have a hard time making the group classes they have scheduled.

We're looking at adopting siblings, 2 or 3, 9 years old or under preferably just to be closer to our DD's age (is almost 2). I'm SO excited! I know this is a long journey, but just knowing we will be able to give some kids a loving home together warms my heart so much! I can't wait to meet my children. It's so weird to already love them so much when I don't even know them.

Thank you to AlexAiden Mommy for my beautiful siggie!

I really identify with "already love them so much when I don't even know them". I feel the same way about my nephew that we are adopting, even though we haven't even met him. I don't tell people because I'm sure they'd think I'm crazy. But really, I feel like our family is just not complete until he comes home with us!
