I am so happy to say that we got an email from Taiwan lastnight.....and we were approved to adopt from His Hands Taiwan! I can't even express what a divine appointment this is! Jason and I decided that we wanted to change agencies back in Dec......we just were not sure where to start. And then we came across His Hands and I saw a blog that caught my attention on the HH page. As a teacher, I really enjoy reading other people's stories! I sent this sweet girl that looked to be somewhere close to my age a request on fb, and we have so much in common! We are both teachers, love the Lord, and our b'day's are even on the same day...lol! Anyway.....it ended up that she helps out at the home we applied to adopt from (now tell me that's not the Lord at work)! We got our approval letter, but are not sure where we are on the waiting list! We should find out in the next few weeks.......GOD IS JUST SO GOOD! I'm so excited that I feel like this post isn't making much sense.......! We are so blessed to work with such a precious ministry! We plan to apply for immigration on Monday! So...let the fundraising begin:) LOVE U ALL!

At one time I would say that someone who gives up their own child is selfish.....boy was I wrong. These women are choosing LIFE! NOT ABORTION!!!!! Taiwan has more abortions than live births and unwed mothers are frowned upon and usually abandoned by everyone and everything they have ever known. These are brave women that are willing to stand up to the situation and do what is right. They are showing a true mother's love by being selfless. Adoption is such a wonderful thing and I have the deepest love for someone who is going to give my future baby the chance to live. Every life is worth fighting for. Today was the first chance that we got to meet our social worker. She came out for our homestudy visit #1. I couldn't of hand picked a better lady to work with. She is so nice and fun to be around. We will meet back up with her on Monday for visit #2 and the chance to discuss parenting.
