We are thrilled to announce that we're adopting from UGANDA!!!

While this may come as a surprise for some people, most of you have known for quite some time of our desires to start a family.  We've been praying, and feel that this is where God is leading us.

We are just at the beginning stages of the process, and don't have too many details at this time, but our hope is that as we walk this journey, you will walk alongside of us.

We have mixed emotions - that of excitement and joy, as well as anticipation, nervousness, and longing!!  We know that God is preparing our child in Uganda and we are excited to bring this child into our family - a child that needs a mother and a father to love them, to encourage them, and to comfort them. Parents to kiss them, bathe them, shelter them, and pray for them. Someone to tell them that they have worth, that they belong to a family... that they are loved!!

There are so many orphans in this world and our hearts break at the increasing numbers each day.

It's exciting that God is giving us this opportunity to change the life of 1 child (maybe 2!)

We don't know the name or even the sex of our child - but we will be waiting patiently for him or her to come home to us.

THANKS for sharing in our excitement! Please be praying for us and take the time to read our blog!

April & Chris
