After two years of feeling like the Lord told us to be still... Jake and I woke up the day after valentine's (we had a wonderful dinner with some amazing friends) to find ourselves BOTH having so much peace and excitement about adoption. Here's a little pic from v-day just for some visual excitement :)

pappas bros steakhouse!

so we called some agencies and set some interviews and....


We met with Hope Cottage of Dallas and are very excited. We feel a lot of peace about working with this agency. We are pretty full of unexpected emotions as we begin this process; it’s all extremely overwhelming. However, we are mostly encouraged, confident, and excited!
We are attending an Adoption Education Seminar Saturday, March 31st. The next step after the seminar is to complete a Home Study and a bunch of paper work. When all the i’s are dotted and t’s crossed we will officially be a waiting family!
We are SO thankful the Lord is encouraging us and allowing us to finally move in this direction. Yay! We are so confident and know the Lord has a perfect little Piatt baby coming our way.

Please pray for us as we embark this new phase of waiting!!
