Adoption Interview




Hey guys! First of all, I just wanted to thank everyone for your prayers today. We just back from our first adoption interview in North Carolina. This was basically a requirement for Barker Foundation to meet all their adoptive parents face to face and to go over the entire adoption process from Korea. It was more informative than it was an interview. One of the MAJOR things we learned was that there was a change in Korea's escort option in that they no longer offer it unless it is an emergency. Soooo, this means....WE ARE GOING TO KOREA!!! Bryan and I were on the fence really about this option. Although it would be cheaper to do the escort option, there are so many benefits to going to our child's home country! We would experience the culture first hand and also be able to meet our child's foster family and all those who have loved and cared for him/her for 10 months of their life! We were open about this option and prayed that if God wanted us to go, that He would make it an obvious choice. Well, there's no choice about it, it is a requirement now, so He made it kinda easy! ;) We are so excited that we get to do this and won't get too discouraged by the additional cost. We know that God will provide for this as well. :) I'll give more details about our trip later on when we know more about it. Overall the meeting was very beneficial, and gave us a good idea of what to expect in the next 13 to 15 months (estimated time line until we can bring him/her home!) On another note, I definitely underestimated the work still left to do, even after the home study is complete. We would ask that you would pray for us as we struggle to find time to complete all our requirements in a timely manner and to rely on God to get us through what seems so overwhelming to us at times! Just a reminder...our Home Study Interviews are scheduled for Friday, April 9 at 9:30pm and Saturday, April 10 at 8:30 am! Thanks so much for your prayers and support! We love you all! P.S. Sorry no pictures! We forgot to document this trip! :( But I'll have some coming up soon, I promise!
