YES!!! We Have Started The Adoption Process

As the Blog says, we are hoping for Six... Yes that means we are trying to adopt again!!! We have talked about this for some time now and we have decided to adopt from Vietnam. We are anxious, excited and a little nervous but the joy we have felt these past 2 years with JiaLi have strengthened our desire and resolve to adopt again. All the kids are excited and are looking forward to their new sibling coming home. We have sent in our application, it has been approved and now the mountains of paper work begin. Our social worker has been contacted and is "delighted" to work with us again, "she just knew we would be adopting again, she just figured we would". As we come closer to the process we realize the immense cost of the adoption process. We have decided to look at alternate ways to raise money for the adoption. Our first attempt is the "Thread of Love" concept and web-site, you can see it here just click the link. We grasped a thread of love from China as most of our friends who blog have... The Thread of Love site focuses on Vietnam. We can add any country you may consider just drop us a comment and we will customize for your country of choice!!! Thank you all for your support!!!
