Another year gone!

We'll it is hard to believe that it is already the end of the year! Christmas has come and gone I have to say it really never seemed like it was Christmas time! Usually I have all of my shopping done and presents wrapped by the first weekend of December! That did not happen this year! I did not decorate like I normally do either, Lindsey was lucky that we even put up the tree ! We had a beautiful Christmas. Lindsey, as always racked up with everything she wanted and more! I also was surprised with a Apple Laptop and a Sonny camcorder! 
Adam's dad got to Memphis late Christmas night and will be here until Monday! I fell really guilty, I have been sick the whole time he has been in town and I have not felt like doing much of anything! 

We have now been waiting for a month! Just one Month! It is hard to think that we could have to wait another year! All I can do is pray it is not that long. I know God has a plan and I do find comfort knowing he is in control.

So The Wait Begins Again !

This is a journal for our baby Burbules. We want our baby to be able to know how much love was in our hearts for him or her and the different roads we traveled to have him or her in our arms! We are so excited with the anticipation of us being able to receive a call any day that we have been chosen. As some of you already know we have been trying to give Lindsey a brother or sister now for a very long time. We started thinking about adopting last March and by May we were signed with an Agency with there VN program. It started out with just a 9 month wait and by the time our Home Study was completed the wait had gone to 18 to 24 months. Also we were aware of problems according in the program and I was concerned that the program may close once again. It was truly one of the most painful decisions I have ever had to make in my life. However; I knew in my heart it was the best for our family. I know that God has a plan for myself and my family. God has lead us back here to the states. I have handed everything over to him and our baby will be in our home with us when the time is right!

We changed agencies and we are now with Bethany Christian Adoption Agency! Our portfolio was ready to show to birth patent's on Nov 29.2007. The birth parents will pick us out for their child's forever family! The agency says it could be 2 weeks to 2 years. I have been working hard on getting everything ready in our home. With Christmas right around the corner I really belived that the wait would be a little easer but it seems that it is all I am able to think about!!!

To all I am wishing you a merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!
