So it Begins
After much prayer and careful consideration (and 11 years of marriage) we have decided to begin pursuing adoption.
While this might be new news to some, this has been in the works for several years. Adoption was something we talked about before we were even officially dating. It is something that has been a part of our conversations and plans. We bought a four bedroom house for example.
So why start a blog now?
I am a very private person and because of me asking to keep things quiet, Josh is a bottled up private person. But we know that this is something that is going to require a much larger circle than just Team Miller.
On September 11th we will be attending our first meeting with DSS. At this meeting we plan on submitting our initial application and having lots of questions answered and even more questions raised.
Yep. Adoption. We are exploring adopting from foster care. Our plans are to become licensed foster parents with the intention of adopting the children we are fostering. Our plans are to adopt a sibling group of 2-3 with an age range of 0 to 10 years old. We decided that we don't want to have kids that are older than our marriage. But those are our plans, who knows what the coming months and weeks will have in store.
So please be praying for us during the next few weeks and months...and years.
