This is being written before many of you know just what we're doing. What began as a discussion when we were dating has become something we are pursuing now. Today we filled out our application to adopt through Children's Hope International. Before we sign and send it in, Jarod needs a physical and we need to write a check. That's it. We're on our way.
We decided to call this site Finding Magnolia because we are requesting a little girl, and we are planning to name her Magnolia. I feel very strongly that the child we are meant to parent is out there already, at least as a glimmer in an eye, a wish on the wind. We just have to find her.
And we will.
