Adoption Update

We officially started the adoption process in September. It has definitely been easier so far just because we don't have to get every single piece of paperwork notarized....and in turn, get the notary verified by the county...and in turn, get the county notary notarized by the state. So, the paperwork process has been a cinch!

We turned in our official home study in December, and it was sent to the Alabama DHR at the beginning of January. It is only the first week of February, and our home study is already at CIS in Atlanta. That was quick! We anticipate the CIS approval process to take 3 months, but timelines are always questionable.

Every day we pray for our child/children wherever they are right now. We pray that God will prepare his/her/their hearts to be a part of a forever family. May God give us the patience to wait on His timing and to know that He is in total control.
