adoption, huh?

The papers are sent. The 1st bill is paid. We are officially in the adoption process!

“But why, you can already have children of your own? They don’t give you the good ones, you know. You can’t give it back if something is wrong with it. But what about your own children? But isn’t it really expensive? But don’t you have to wait a really long time? Thats amazing, but I could NEVER do that. Oh thats so cool, you’re gonna be just like Angelina Jolie! You should be really careful not to adopt out of their birth order.” etc. etc. etc. 

And thus the questions and comments from well-meaning folks have begun. 
 
All I have time to answer with for now is, Philippians 4:8-9
Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. What you have learned and received and heard and seen in me—practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you.
