Well, we have officially taken the first real step in our Ugandan adoption journey! Barbara is over the entire Sanyu Babies Home (orphanage). So, the first step is to contact her and ask permission to come and find your child. I was SOOO nervous! I didn't know what to write/ask/say. Before, I started writing our letter, I prayed. I prayed for God to lead my hands and heart in this entire process, and especially right now as I ask for permission. I wrote about Tyler and my life story, about our infertility, about how God is leading us to Uganda and how we know without a doubt that He has our child there. I sent our letter on Thursday around noon. Barbara responded Friday morning:) She said yes! Yes, we can come! My GOD is soooo awesome!!!!
We will start our homestudy now. Once we are adoption approved, I will write to Barbara again and get a date to go to Africa!!!! I cannot tell you how good it feels to have made a first step....I wish we were leaving for Uganda today!
To our future child: I pray everyday for you! I pray that God is watching over you and protecting you. We will meet you soon! We promise to give you a wonderful, wonderful life.
