A new year & new beginnings

It's a new year which should be filled with new beginnings, experiences, hopes, dreams & anticipation. What better way to start off the new year then with a new blog. A friend of mine, Kristi, has been trying to get me to start one for some time now & I have finally given in.

This is the journey of a young married Christian couple (is mid 30's young???) as we prayerfully start a family. To get you quickly up to speed we are waiting not only to adopt our first child, but to also have my first IVF treatment with REACH (reproductive endocrinology associates of charlotte) either this month or in Feb. How exciting? We have been contracted with Lifetime Adoption since June '07 & I started back on infertility treatments at REACH in Nov '07. Can you tell we are eager to be parents & we are thankful for the opportunity to try both at the same time! Now we are just waiting as patiently as possible to start our family.

We only ask one thing from you - please keep us, REACH & Lifetime in your thoughts & prayers as we go through this journey together. It will & has been stressful but we are really excited about what it to come.

Oh & I almost forgot to mention that we plan to sell our current house & purchase another this year as well. Although we really haven't decided if we want to build or purchase a resale home yet but it will all come together in due time. So we have a busy year ahead of us but I am really excited about it & look forward to sharing it with you.

YEAH!!! You are going to love this! Pictures are so easy to post - just shrink them first so that they load quickly. I love using mine not only as an update for friends but a semi-journal. It will be neat to have later on....
