And just like that our home-study is finished! This was the photo book birth mamas looked through to see a glimpse into who Roy and I are. ❤️ THANK YOU ALL for your love, support, and sharing in the excitement with us on this adoption and for our baby! I can't put it into words what your Love means to us. ❤️ This adoption experience has been a very quick yet a long one. Over the past 12 years we attempted to adopt three different times and all for various reasons none of them worked out. The last failed adoption we felt that perhaps God had other things for us to focus on or just wasn't calling us to parenthood. ❤️ This experience, this time around has been a journey for sure. We have hesitated, holding our breath waiting for the rug to be pulled out from underneath our feet and taken away again. But we have taken each step carefully, prayerfully, and faithfully, trusting that God will fulfill his promise he made to both of us a long time ago that would be parents. ❤️ I can't believe that it's moving along what feels so quickly now because just like that, we have been matched and welcome baby Rowland at the end of October! 🎉🎉🎉 ❤️ Ps because so many people have asked how to support the baby, my sister @kristinrowles set up a "gofundme" for baby Rowland. You can find the link in my profile. // #momentssquared #adoption #adoptionjourney #adoptionsaveslives #homestudyapproved #chatbooks

We fervently believe that the foundations of an Open Adoption Relationship begin during the Home Study Process. Talk to your Home Study provider about your fears or concerns about Open Adoption. Seek advice on healthy Open Adoption Relationships. These foundations allow for a lifetime relationship to grow benefitting not only the Birth Family, but the child and YOU! #abidinglove #abidingloveadoptions #neveraloneneverforgottenalwaysloved #openadoption #homestudy #birthmother #adopt #adoption #adoptionislove #domesticadoption #homestudyapproved #adoptioneducation #education #socialworker #socialwork #consideradoption #adoptivemom #adoptiveparents #adoptivefamily #alabama #georgia

HOME STUDY APPROVED! 💙 We are delighted to share that we’re officially home study approved and ready to bring a child into our home and into our hearts. We’re hoping that our profile will be “live” on our agency’s website by the beginning of July! 💛 Perhaps you know a friend, or a friend of a friend, who is looking for a loving family for the child she is carrying. We’d be honored if you would share us with her in hopes that we may be a good match for one another. If you know someone considering an adoption plan, please have her contact me directly or she can call American Adoptions at 1-800-ADOPTION and ask to see John and Ashley’s profile. 💜 We are so excited to be one step closer to #bringingbabyreeveshome and we can’t say thank you enough to all of you who have prayed for us, supported us, and purchased our T-shirts! We ask that you continue to pray for us, and more importantly, continue to pray for our future birth mama. 🧡 #adoption #adoptionstory #waitingfamily #waitingforyou #americanadoptions #lovemakesafamily #adoptionjourney #mightymamasbyadoption #homestudy #homestudyapproved #adoptivemom #adoptivefamily

The back page of our #adoptionprofile 😍 I love these three so fiercely... with everything in me! I can’t wait to see how our lives change when baby is finally here. The kids are so excited and we all just want God to hurry it up... but He’s operating on his time and we are doing our best to trust & remain hopeful. Some days are easier than others; but at the end of each day, we have each other, and we know God will fulfill his promise to us 💗 #lovemakesafamily #waitingfamily #homestudyapproved #facadopts #adoptionrocks #adoptingaminimurry

ICPC = Interstate Compact on the Placement of Children •••SO WHAT’S THE BIG DEAL••• If your child is born in one state and you live in another, you will have to receive ICPC approval from both states BEFORE traveling home. If your Home Study isn’t prepared correctly you could be WAITING in the Birth State until the appropriate documents/records are received by ICPC. •••WAITING COST YOU MONEY••• SO... (1) When choosing a Home Study provider, ask the provider how they prepare your HOME STUDY for ICPC. (2) Ask if they help with the ICPC process when your state is reviewing your ICPC packet (many agencies don’t and this adds to the wait period). . PREPARATION is key! If your Home Study isn’t properly prepared you can be waiting in the Birth State spending $$$ on Hotel Rooms/Food until you can get home. .

Brett and I have been in Cedar City for the past 2 days celebrating our 10 year anniversary. ❤️ We had a fun day today being lazy in the morning and then getting all fancy for a night out! And we both had the BEST massages today! You guys, these 2 ladies at the end of my photos rocked it out! I have never been so relaxed in my life! If you are ever in Cedar and want a massage, check out @asaymom at Color Country Massage. You will not regret it!

But what if I don’t ACTUALLY WANT this mountain???? . . . . . Y’all... my heart is struggling. Infertility was hard. Two miscarriages were even harder. But this??? I had no idea how much my heart would shatter with every “no”, even if it is a “not yet”. We have legit only been active for two weeks tomorrow... and this rollercoaster of “say yes”... but she said “no” is HARD. I want to be honest about how I am feeling because 1. I know there is someone else going through this that needs to know they’re not alone, 2. I am on a plane waiting to hear back from a case we said yes to - and it’s KILLING ME, so I write 😬and 3. This is my chronological diary, if you will, that I will look back on someday to see the path God took us down to get to our baby. OUR BABY. It WILL happen. I know it WILL. Even if it’s not today, tomorrow or two months from Saturday, it WILL happen. If you’re still reading (bless your heart 💜), thank you for being here with us in the wait. It’s not glamorous; but God is transforming our hearts daily. Will you pray we wait well (even if I don’t WANT TO ... like in my mind I am kicking and screaming and throwing a little fit at God right now even as I type 😂) . . #lovemakesafamily #facadopts #homestudyapproved #waitingfamily #adoptingaminimurry
Cue all the tears 😭😭 I am such a blessed bonus mama! 💗 #adoptingaminimurry #lovemakesafamily #facadopts #waitingfamily #homestudyapproved
#hopingtoadopt60days challenge Day 18: My Ride. We have had our Jeep since 2010. It’s been a great car and we are lucky it’s been so reliable this long! ( knock on wood 😃). The kids have a little extra room so it’s nice. We love our Jeep! Brett drives a Toyota Camry to work. It’s only 3 years old, so it’s still in great shape. (Knock on wood again 🤣). When we go on road trips we usually take it because it has great gas mileage. What’s your ride? Or your dream ride? #myride #jeepsandcamrys #brettandpaigehoping2adopt #adoption #adoptimist #adoptimistprofile #africanamericanbaby #babygirl #adoptionjourney #ldsadoption #hopingtoadopt #adoptionfamily #familiesareforever #lovemakesafamily #expectantpatents #adoptionrelationship #openadoption #semiopenadoption #closedadoption #utahadoption #homestudyapproved #privateadoption #familylove #prayingtoadopt #prayingforbabygirl

I thought it would be fun to post some pics of family and friends in our lives. They are the best! This is my dad. Well, the back of him anyway. We are in his studio doing what we do whenever we get together, singing and talking. My dad has been a musician for about 40 years, sharing the message of God's love in every note and word written. I can't wait to introduce our little one to my dad and his music!

Just a few closeups of our May items. This awesome custom bookmark is from @the_porterbox. Aren’t these precious?! Also, has anyone read this great book? @elizabethlaingthompson has a follow up book to it called When God Says Go. It’s on my list! And this hand towel ❤️ I can’t get enough of this whipped soap scrub. The fresh grapefruit scent...the creamy texture...the smooth skin! Check out her shop! @sugarandchicdesigns I know I’m biased, but I truly loved packing these May boxes for you mamas in waiting. Oh how I hope they brought you a smile. 🙌😊❤️

Wishing life was this pretty everyday but in honesty it looks like me wearing yoga pants and grant writing until my fingers are numb. We’re praying every day for our birth parents and my brain turns to dreaming about our future child so often. We’re also praying that God would provide for every need in this process. We’re working hard to apply for grants and raise the funds to bring our baby home but truthfully, dealing with the money aspect of this is uncomfortable for me. I wish we could just write this check and be done but that’s not our reality. We know that the means will come but it’s hard not knowing how or when! #adoptionishard #butbeautiful #openadoption #newlifeadoptions #homestudyapproved

** Girls fun and fancy weekend! ** On Friday, I got together with some fun friends to celebrate and watch the Royal Wedding! 👑 We had yummy English treats and tea. We stayed up late playing royal trivia games and then got up bright and early at 4 am to watch the wedding! I had so much fun! It was fun to spend time with ladies who are just as obsessed with the royals as I am! Thanks girls for the fun weekend! #royalwedding #girlsnight #brettandpaigehoping2adopt #adoption #adoptimist #adoptimistprofile #africanamericanbaby #babygirl #adoptionjourney #ldsadoption #hopingtoadopt #adoptionfamily #familiesareforever #lovemakesafamily #expectantpatents #adoptionrelationship #openadoption #semiopenadoption #closedadoption #utahadoption #homestudyapproved #privateadoption

Beauty on our walk tonight!
We received word from FAC today that they’ve received all of our materials and we will be assigned a consultant early next week! Since we decided to pursue adoption in late January, it’s been a wild blur of paperwork and checklists. We are headed into a whole new season in this process. We don’t know if it will take a day, a year or any amount of time in between for us to match with an expectant mama. The Lord sure does have a sense of humor... I literally could not be more type A... and my desire to plan and control HAS to go out the window, like now 😭😭😭 so I am posting this lovely picture because it’s my desire for THIS to be well with my soul. Admittedly, I’m scared to freaking death... but I know Who holds tomorrow! God has brought us this far and He will fulfill His promises 💗 HERE WE GO! @facadopts #facadopts #homestudyapproved #adoptionrocks #adoption #lovemakesafamily #domesticadoption #waitingfamily #adoptingaminimurry
This is Porter, our only child, our amazing child. 10 years ago I was pregnant with him and had no idea what life had in store for us, but I loved that part of my life and I thank my Creator everyday for letting me have that experience. . Porter is really social. He's different from Eric and I in that way. He lives for friends! It breaks my heart that I couldn't give him a sibling to grow up with, but I know that if he gets the chance, he'll appreciate it more than the average kid. I grew up with a brother and four sisters. His childhood is so very different from my own. I have to remind myself to trust that God has a reason for letting him grow up this way and that God is shaping him into the person he needs to be. . Please share our profile and help us find a little brother or sister for this kid. He deserves it!
We look forward to the adventure little one!
