And the paperwork begins...

Zack and I sent in an application to Adoption Assistance over the weekend and we were sent the Home Study packet.  At first glance I thought "Oh, this isn't going to be too bad."  Boy was I wrong.  It caused me quite a bit of stress.  We had to list our addresses for the past ten years..... once I started my list the longer it got... I have had one address for the past 5 years but the 5 years before that was 5 different addresses and two of those addresses repeated themselves one time.  While going over this list of addresses and trying to remember when I lived where it took me down "memory lane."  Boy am I glad and soooooooooo thankful of where I am now and what God has brought me through!  Zack is an amazing husband and I'm so lucky to have him in my life.  I would not want to go through this process with anyone else.  I love you!

Papers are mainly filled out, I have to get my medical forms filled out at my next appointment in 2 weeks.  We have asked our dear friends to write letters of recommendation.  I am sending out our background checks tomorrow. And the list goes on.... And really it's not the forms we had to fill out but all the pieces of information we have to pull together.  Whew! 


It's TOTALLY worth it!!!!!!!!  :)

I already love you so much Baby Anderson.

XOXO Momma :)
