Adoption ... It's a _______!
It's a ... NEW COUNTRY! If you have been following Lark & Bloom for very long you may have come across some posts about adoption. You can read through them right here to get caught up.
This December marks four years since we started the process of trying to adopt. We began with Uganda, then moved to Ghana. Two weeks ago we learned that our agency is now closing their Ghana program.
Jady & I went back to the drawing board and asked ourselves the hard question. Do we still want to adopt? The answer was overwhelmingly yes.
Nights were spent scouring programs both internationally and here in the United States. We considered every option...again. One program and agency stood out. We talked to them on the phone, got our questions answered, prayed a lot and made our decision.
We are adopting two children from Burundi!
In a lot of ways we are back at square one, but our hearts are very peaceful and excited to be moving forward. Unlike the two previous countries we were working with, Burundi is not dealing with government setbacks when it comes to adoptions.
So, we are filling out the paperwork and the ball is moving forward. If all goes smoothly we could bring our children home as early as this summer.
Lark & Bloom really isn't a personal blog, so I am going to limit the number of posts I put up about adoption on here. I have however started a new blog, The Six Griffins, which will keep you updated on our adoption situation.

As always, I appreciate your prayers and thoughts as we keep working to bring our kids home. Your support and encouragement has been overwhelming in this process. The biggest thanks to each of you!
