We have kept busy in the last year and a half! In March 2013, Faith came into our lives. In July 2013, she became “officially” ours. We celebrated her first Halloween, her first Christmas & New Years, first Easter, and finally, her first Birthday! Then, in May 2014, we sold our first home where we celebrated all of those firsts and moved to a larger home in a new town. (A bittersweet stepping stone.) We said goodbye to our sweet cat, Murphy. We left Faith’s first daycare which we loved and started in-home daycare with a nanny whom Faith absolutely adores.
We are totally in love with Faith. She has brought so much joy to our lives. She is the funniest, sassiest, cutest, and stubbornest, little person I know. Faith entering our lives has tested our marriage, brought us closer, tested our patience, and brought out characteristics in both Tony and I that we never knew existed. Through all of the challenges, ups, downs, twists, and turns, hearing that little voice say, “Mommy” and “Daddy” will light up a dark day and give you that extra boost of energy when you don’t think you have any more.
We are excited to announce that we are starting the adoption process all over again! Our home study is underway and we are excited to welcome another child into our family. I will be trying to keep the blog updated (thought that has proven a bit more challenging with Faith…) and I hope to have a few guest blogs from Tony… (hint.. hint…) We will keep family updated and post pictures here as well.
So, if you know of anyone who is thinking about creating an adoption plan for their unborn (or already born) child, please contact us. We have created a phone number and email address specifically for adoption. If they would like more information and would prefer to contact an agency first, we will be working with Adoptions of Wisconsin as well. I will include the contact information below.
We’re excited to start the journey again! Please join us again
