We will be starting adoption preperations tomorrow 1.1.07 . The things we will be working on this week are submitting Melissa's application for her passport, setting up meetings with the agency who will be doing our homestudy, and beginning to make the improvements necessary to our home.
I found this site, Home For Good, the other day, and like this pamphlet.
Makes you think about the fact we are the adopted sons of God. Jesus went to prepare a place for us not an orphanage, and we can cry Abba, Father to God and we won't be St. Peter's foster children. This site really makes the argument that adoption is a true mission field.
