Blaine and I work together to teach an 11 year old Primary class. Each Sunday, we begin class by taking turns telling either one good thing that has happened, or one positive thing that we are looking forward to. It's really just a sneaky way to get their talking out of the way, and to find out more about the kids.
Today, for my turn, I told the class that Blaine and I have been approved through LDS Family Services to adopt. Our students had a lot of questions, and seemed excited and curious about it.
I realized as I shared that my news is a little of both. Getting approved and having our profile placed online is a good thing that has happened. It also is the first major step toward something that we are looking forward to: growing our little family. Either way, happy.
