From Blachly to Burundi and back...

Tomorrow I will do a photo dump on here and catch you up via snap shots on life as of late, but for now I'll catch you up on our most exciting news...

We're in the (beginning of the very long) process of adopting! We've begun our international adoption journey to Burundi and we are beyond excited. The process is 2+ years so we've got a lot ahead of us, but we're prayerfully taking steps forward in faith and we're just so impressed with our amazing God and His faithfulness to us and how He is leading us one step in faith at a time through this already.

I'm the terrified type of excited about it all, which I think is a good place to be. My heart is full as we press in on the desires God has placed in us a long time ago, but there's something fresh and scary about actually jumping in with both feet and telling people you are!

Prayers for our family (and for our sweet child, that God already knows by name) as we forge through uncharted territory are greatly appreciated - thanks, friends.

go ahead - laugh

You might think I'd be embarrassed that when I realized something we needed to do was scheduled for 4:30pm PST I asked my husband, "So what time is that for us?" and he just gave me a blank stare and said, "4:30pm."

But since I have no shame left, I share it on my blog with all of you...obviously.

It's okay to laugh. My husband did.
