Family

May 30, 2009 — 6 Comments

famToday, Karen and I finished our pre-adoption training with the agency we are working with.  The only training we have left is our CPR & First Aid (if you saw the re-run of The Office the other night…I won’t pull a Dwight!)

My brain is full after today – a lot to process, consider, and file away for future use…

Two thoughts from the day:

  1. I thank God for my own family.  We were not perfect, but I did live a life that was free from many of the sad things that so many children too often go through.  Most espcecially, I am grateful for my parents.  Just as any kid, there were times that I didn’t feel that way, but man I so appreciate them.
  2. I am excited and anxious about the children that Karen and I will have the opportunity to pour our lives into.  I pray that we are used to heal, reaffirm, encourage, and all the things that are necessary for the children that God blesses us with.

I haven’t written too mugh about our journey, one day I will spend some time doing that and post it.

    Wow! That picture is awesome and I got to know you not too much after this photo it seems. I pray your adoption goes well and look forward to what you have to share about your journey with adoption.

    Dennis you are going to be the most amazing dad! I know your mom is looking down smiling at the journey on which you are about to embark. These kids don’t even know what a blessing God has for them by bringing them to you and Karen. We have been and will continue to pray for you and your sweet family!
