...make that Pennsylvania!

So, the past few weeks have been interesting. We've mostly just been preparing our home for our home study update. We decided that we'd at least try to adopt domestically through the foster care system (bypassing the foster care stage, and adopting ready children) for now. And - yesterday - we found out that we are going to have another son!

This is all very new, so we don't know many of the details on the process just yet. However, we do know that this little guy is six years old (just six months younger than Cameron - call us crazy - everyone else does). We've seen a picture, and know a little bit about his needs. He has some similarities to Eric and Cameron in different ways, but we feel that God has prepared us for this challenge and this addition to our family. We have a bit of a curvy road ahead again as we transition him into our home and into our routine, but we are grateful to have a name and a face on the next member of our family. We are looking forward to finding out when we will get to meet him. Right now, we're working on updating all of our paperwork, clearances, etc.

I joked to Eric the other day that we should adopt one child through foster care (Cameron), one child straight from care (that would be this one), one internationally (Russia), and then one domestic infant adoption to round things out. I was kidding, but such kiddings in the past have turned out to be prophetic. So who knows? Right now, we'll just focus on this one!
