Nate and I thought it might be a good idea to start documenting our adoption journey for ourselves and for all our loved ones to know what is going on. As some of you know, we have wanted to adopt for a while now, and after many prayers and conversations, now is the time. We are so excited to have a new Fritzel in our family and of course for Owen and the future little Fritzel to experience the joys and frustrations;) of having a sibling. After being turned down at one adoption agency for already having a child and being fertile, we are so excited to say that we have been pre-approved for a domestic infant adoption at another agency. We will be adopting through Buckner International Adoption Agency in Dallas. After our pre-approval we met with the adoption social worker on staff for an orientation. We learned all about the history of adoption, Buckner’s history of adoption, the adoption process, and received the application. We are now in the midst of filling out massive amounts of paperwork in order to move forward. Please check out our new blog from time to time in order to share in our ups and downs.
