Let the paperwork begin!

Curtis (our favorite mailman) delivered our huge packet of papers today from Bethany Christian Services. We have a lot of paperwork to get started on, but it's actually not as bad as we anticipated. The stack of papers would have been a lot higher with an international adoption. So for the next few weeks we'll be wading through background checks, physical exams, health insurance affidavits, and numerous other questionnaires.

We've been talking with the boys a lot about adoption and the new baby brother/sister they are going to have soon. They are both very excited. Isaac asked me the other day, "Mom, is it better to adopt a baby or just have one?" (I'm assuming by "just have one" he meant having one biologically.) I got to explain to him how God loves for us to have children both ways, and that neither is better than the other. Don't you just love the questions kids come up with? I'm sure we'll be answering lots of interesting questions as this process rolls on....
