Adoption and employment

So, we've heard back from our contacts in Ross's birth country. All systems are a go! Next stop.... Home Study! We have about half of the funds that we need to get started, so we're gonna plan a couple fundraisers. I'm thinking about doing a fundraiser night at our local Chick-fil-A. I like how they play worship music in there and it would be a great atmosphere for our church family to gather. Hopefully we would have a good turn out. Fellowship night style! 

We have an updated photo of him. He's looking so much older to me... I don't wanna miss out on any more of his growing! His caretakers described him as "tender" and "sweet". I love to hear that. I'm praying that the Lord blesses him while he waits for us. 

Check this out... I didn't notice this so much till after we got this photo. We always joked that our ballerina had the same face shape as Josh's side of the family. The jawline and chin in particular. See how pronounced his chin and cheeks are? Now look at this photo of ballerina.

See what I mean about the jawline/chin shape? Very much alike. It's funny eh? Also, check this out:

What do we notice about this photo of Josh's mom? Yes! Same jawline. I love it! 

Even lil' hipster has it... although his is much chubbier.... I love my kid's faces!

So anyway, I'll continue to keep you updated as we trek along this adventure the Lord has called us into.

Also on the horizon, I will begin training for what is to be my new business venture. Now..... I know it's not your average job... but I'm super jazzed about it. 

In about 5 weeks, I will be a certified Placenta Encapsulation Specialist. For more information on what the Placenta has to offer new mothers, go here. I will also be able to provide new mothers with Placenta prints like this one.

I think these are supremely beautiful. So... if you know a soon to be new mom who would like to know more about how her placenta can help her with post birth healing, postpartum depression, milk supply, and energy, point her my way. 

Well... that's about all for now. I hope ya'll have a super blessed weekend. Stay dry, stay safe, and above all, stay joyful!
