A thankful heart

Hi all! Matt and I are overwhelmed by your support and love we have received from all of you! We are so excited about this journey. I must admit we are nervous too...so many what ifs. However, we do feel God is working in our hearts, and we are honestly trusting God as we go through this process. I often wonder..how are we going to pay for this since we have to pay upfront, but I know God will provide and I just have to be faithful. Our message today at church for advent was about hope and knowing that God will provide. I honestly felt God wanted Matt and I to hear that message. Our prayers are now for letting us find a wonderful birth mom, helping us pay for the adoption, and allowing us to trust him throughout the process. We are SO excited. Honestly, I feel like I just told everyone I was pregnant...I think it is the same feeling anyways, since I have nothing to compare! :) We do have our meeting on Thursday, and I am bursting with excitement as we finish our application and start our scrapbook! If anyone has any ideas for what to put in the scrapbook please do let me know...I have some ideas of sections, but I am still trying to figure that out. Also, any gender neutral nursery ideas would be awesome too. My dear friend, Abby thought maybe grey and yellow. I really like idea!

Also I know our comments section is not working right now...not sure why! Matt Troyer is fixing it for me soon! Yeah Matt! If you want to contact via email for now that would be awesome! basket_girl24@yahoo.com

Again, Matt are overwhelmed by support and we are SO thankful for all of you! God has truly blessed with awesome family and friends and I cannot thank you enough. Please keep us in your prayers!

Love you all! :)

Our decision!

Hi there! I have some big news today! Matt and I have decided to adopt a baby. Last night we filled out our application, and will submit it on Thursday! I am so excited, like to the point where I cannot stop smiling! It has been a journey to get us here. We know God is putting us on this plan and cannot wait to be parents! We are adopting from a local company in Indianapolis and will receive our child as a newborn. Literally as I am typing this, I feel my heart pounding with excitement. It is the kind of excitement I felt the day I married Matt wondering what our life will be like! I now wonder who my child will be and what they will look like! I started this blog so I can document the process of adoption for Matt and I, family, friends, and of course our little one! So this the first of many posts to come! I just wanted to share the news!
