Patiently Getting Ready

I think I was born ready to have babies! When we got married, we said we would wait 1 or 2 years to have kids (I was thinking 1 year and Rex was thinking at least 2 years). Little did I know we would wait this long. May 28th will be our six year wedding anniversary. Am I sad or do I have regrets that we've waited this long? No way! I can't believe how much I've enjoyed having this time with just the two of us and I know our time without kiddos isn't over just yet! I need to make sure I take advantage of this time and enjoy my hubby! It's really important that I at least work on learning how to make my husband my first priority (after God) even once our family grows.

I am definitely looking forward to adding kids to our little family, but I'm thankful that after waiting all this time I still feel pretty peaceful about God's timeline (I'm not sure that I'll be able to say that everyday until we bring our first one home, but hey, I'm not perfect! Ha!).

We do have a few things to get in order before we'll even be sending off our application to our agency of choice. Hopefully, we'll be doing that sometime this summer(or Who knows, maybe sooner)!


  1. excited to be following this with you!

  2. I totally understand what you mean about being born ready to be a mom. I was too! :) I was ready a year or two after we go married. Matt wanted to wait a little longer...we will be married 8 years in June. We definitely weren't expecting to wait anywhere close to this long, but I know God's ways our not our ways! We are trying to make the most out of this waiting time too!

  3. Yay! Thanks Mary!!

    Sarah, I'm so glad that God doesn't leave us to fumble our way around guessing what His plan is for us! I would have made a mess of it a long time ago!

  4. So exciting! I didn't know you had a blog! Love it! Definitely following this process. SOOOO excited for you guys. Love you SO much.

  5. This is great, Amy! I'm so happy for you guys. I love how you are using your time without kids to pour into your husband...that is so wise! :)
