adoption update video!!!! woo hoo.

this post has been a long time comin' ;) 

and i'm so excited to share the news!!

we are officially moving forward with adoption 

IN A BIG WAY.

after a ton of deliberation, and research, we have chosen a new agency.   

the other agency we were with isn't a bad agency, but this one is 

SUCH A BETTER FIT. 

without going into ALL the details, it just fits our family and our timeline better. 

the finances are spread out into 3 parts vs. all at once

the agency and birth mom will be from Arkansas vs. a birth mom anywhere in the US 
(Arkansas is close to us)  

and several other smaller factors that led us to this decision. 

thanks for all the prayers and thoughts as we made this transition the past couple months. 

so, 

where do we stand now? 

take a look...
thanks to our brilliant friend jeff short for making this video!

and a couple other amazing things happened this week. 

1. we reached our t-shirt pre-sale goal. yippee! 
yes, you can still order shirts here through the end of summer, but we needed the initial pre-sale to order in bulk

2. friday morning we received news that our family is getting an adoption grant! 

thanks for watching friends. 
 
we will keep you updated as we move forward in this exciting process.

I just found you through Buggie & JellyBean and I loved seeing your video! I was so encouraged by your hearts for God and adoption - what a beautiful family already have. We too are adopting and designed shirts, such similarities! We are adopting from S.Korea and are waiting for our travel call and hoping that comes in the next two weeks! I'm definitely going to get one of your shirts! Thanks for opening yourselves up to us!
