Pregnant.....

At least that is what John calls it when we are expecting.

Yes, we have decided to adopt again.

Why?

Why not?

The social worker came today.

The visit went well.

We are excited!

Joni said...

I feel honored to be able to again follow along on your adoption journey! Some day, when you write a best-seller on the story of your family, I will be so proud to say, I KNOW THEM!!! It seems almost as if I do! I was secretly hoping you are not done yet! You have my mental support (can you feel it flowing from over the ocean? :-)

Blogging Friend said...

Congratulations Christine.
Do you know what age or sex you are wanting to bring home. Who ever it is, I know they will come home to loving parents and family.
What do the other kids say about it?

Hey btw, I am not sure if it is my computer but I had a really hard time reading what was written on this blog. The background is so dark that I cannot read the writing.

Love,
Sheila

Blogging Friend said...

Yes this is my second post. LOL!!

I know you said an older child but what about one of the little ones on Reece's Rainbow that is about to be transferred to an Institution. Some of them do not have a lot of medical issues.
Also what about a girl this time?? Dennis and Alex need a little girl to play with, and the older girls need a little girl to doll up too. LOL!!

Also I follow another blog where they adopted a 8yr old I believe and she is really cute.
I had another question but cannot remember it now so you might get post #3. LOL!! Hopefully not!

Sorry I just got excited for you. LOL!!

Love,
Sheila

Leanne said...

YEAH!! Can't wait to see who is going to be joining your family!

Jenny said...

That is awesome! I am so excited that another child will be blessed.

Terri-Anne said...

And to think a few short months ago you were feeling overwhelmed at some of Alex's different needs....now you are ready welcome yet another kiddo into your fold! Awesome! Thanks for taking us along for the ride! It's going to be exciting!

Julie said...

YAY! I can't wait to see how God is going to move in this adoption, as he has in your other ones! Can't wait to see the precious new Reed!

Laurel said...

My heart is happy for the older children who will soon get a wonderful home. Congrats on your paper pregnancy!!!

Sally- That Girl! said...

From one BIG Reed family to another!!! Congratulations!!! I just knew it!!!

Mindy said...

:)De said...

SCREAMING WITH EXCITEMENT!!! I knew it too! When I read about the 2 older children in the last couple of post I thought to myself, "I bet the Reeds are ready again." Congrats and can wait to "meet" him/her.

Peace

Rakel Astros said...

one word: AMAZING!!
I'm sooo excited for you guys!! Oh, and yes, it is crazy, but 100% in a good, no scratch that, GREAT way! That child, whoever he/she is, will be so blessed.

God bless you all on this journey.

oh, and I agree completely with what Joni said. It was as if spoken from my heart, every word!

Qadoshyah said...

Congratulations!! I look forward to seeing what child will be coming home!

Debbie said...

Wow! Fantastic news! I am so thrilled for some little boy or girl waiting in Ukraine to become a Reed. :-) I truly hope that the Lord will someday allow us to adopt again and add younger children to our family. I hope that He will ready my heart to receive the children He has for us, whoever they are. He is doing quite a work of refining me through this difficult time with one of our girls, and I praise Him for it, difficult though it is! Can't wait to see what happens next for the Reed family!

Sara W. said...

Congratulations! That is wonderful news...there's a lucky little (or big) one out there, waiting for you! I must ask though...as an adoptive parent myself...how do you afford the continued adoptions?
Best of luck to your family!!
