The Pay Off The waiting game continued. It’s hard to go through the ups and downs of potentially being matched, then not, then potentially being matched again, then not. It may seem through reading this that we were constant pillars of faith and hope. The reality, however, was that we definitely had our fair share of bottom-dropping moments where we … Read More

The Process Once we received our “clear direction” from the Lord, we started gathering the necessary information in order to start our new adventure.
