Now let me back us with our story for those of you who do not know us well. Scott and I have been married for more than 20 years. We have four biological kids, ages 18, 19, 20, and 24. We homeschooled all of them and loved most every minute of it. In 2009, Scott and I began to feel called to more than what we were doing. We prayed and sought God's will and felt led to fostering children. We have since decided God only gives you tidbits of His plan at a time, probably because we can not handle the entire picture all at once! So our plan was to foster, loving and caring for the children until their families were prepared to take them back. NO intentions of adopting and starting over! In February, 2010, we got the call about Jocelyn and Ellie Grace. They came to us at 3 1/2 years and 5 days old. In July, 2012, we finalized their adoption. They have truly been such a blessing to our family.
We are nervous and excited at the same time at the prospect of adding two more children...but mostly excited. They will make 8 children for us, hence the name of the blog (onourwayto8). Pictures are coming - when I figure out this whole blogging thing. Thanks for your prayers for us and for the boys.
