I just wanted to let you know that we have officially begun the process to be approved for adoption!! It is still a long road ahead before we are even approved let alone selected, but we are excited!!!
"The gospel of Jesus Christ is a gospel of transformation. It takes us as men and women of the earth and refines us into men and women for the eternities. The means of this refinement is our Christlike love. There is no pain it cannot soften, no bitterness it cannot remove, no hatred it cannot alter. The most cherished and sacred moments of our lives are those filled with the spirit of love. The greater the measure of our love, the greater is our joy. In the end, the development of such love is the true measure of success in life. Do you love the Lord?" ~Elder Joseph B. Wirthlin
