Finally Started a Blog....

As many of you know, Derek and I have been trying for two years to conceive our first child. Last week our sixth angel entered Heaven as we heard the dreaded words we have heard so many times before: "There is no heart beat".

We left the doctor's office together as we always do, hand-in-hand. And although last week's news hit us hard, we do have reason to hope. Reason to continue our journey. Her name is Ariannah. A beautiful little girl with special needs who needs a forever home and loving parents to adopt her.

We have submitted our paperwork and are waiting for Indiana to finalize her birth parents' rights. It is then a waiting game to see if Kentucky approves our homestudy and chooses us as the adoptive parents. We are praying that this little girl becomes the answer to our prayers!

We have started this blog so that our friends and family can follow us on our journey to parenthood. We believe that God has big plans for our family, far greater than we can imagine. We are excited about what our future holds and are forever thankful for the love and support we have received from each and every one of you.
