Well heeey!  So glad you made it past the admittedly annoying password stuff.  I know private blogs can be so irritating sometimes, but don’t hate just yet.  We have a very legit reason- our adoption.  So, as you know all too well, we’ve been in the adoption process seemingly foreva.  (P.S. after all of the ups and downs and straight up drama surrounding our adoption, it amazes me that you guys haven’t completely given up on us… or on this blog.  Y’all are as crazy as we are.)  This blog truly has been therapy for me, and that will continue.  But in light of some big changes with our adoption, we felt it necessary to minimize risks as much as possible.  So, in an effort to protect ourselves, our future child, and our adoption in general, we had to get all top-secret on you guys.
Why, you ask?


Because we are now in the process of adopting (independently) from the Democratic Republic of the Congo!


Much more to come later.  So, in the words of the one and only Coolio, “Come along and ride on a fantastic voyage.”

(Why, yes, it was completely necessary to quote Coolio following our big adoption announcement.  Because that’s how we roll.)

  1. Yeah for the DRC! We brought home our two kiddos last summer from DRC. Although we used an agency, but if I could do it again I would go independent all the way. So excited for you, and I would expect for it to move rather quickly for you. If you have any questions about our process please email me, would love to help you if I can!

  2. I’m gonna need more info on this. Does independent mean you have gone rogue? Can’t wait to continue on this journey with you friend 🙂

  3. AWESOME!!!!!! Prayers to you on this exciting journey and beside you are my favorite CFBCDC family :0)

  4. We don’t know nuttin bout no “Coolio” but, in the words of that great sage, Larry The Cable Guy: GIT ER DONE!

  5. At the risk of sounding like your mama and even having my blog privilege revoked, I have to implore you both to exercise great caution in your new adoption quest.

    • Mrs. Gallahan, thanks for the comment! Believe me- you’re not alone… I’ll be addressing some of these concerns on the blog, but rest assured that we’re going into this with our eyes wide open and are in touch with some excellent resources in Congo. In the last two years, God has taught us so much through the Rwandan adoption process, and we look forward to this opportunity to trust in Him with this new leg of the journey!
