Many of you have asked where we are in the adoption process right now. Well, we are currently working on our homestudy. Since our adoption agency, All God's Children International, is based out of Oregon, we had to choose a local agency to do our home study. We chose Bethany Christian Services and are so happy with them as well!

Our goal is to have everything finished on our part and have started our homestudy interviews (they conduct 3) by the end of April.
So that's what's been going on with us in the adoption world lately!
