So, the Kinnells have finally entered the world of blogging...

We figure this is going to be the best way for our friends and family to keep up with our process of adopting from Uganda. We also hope this will be a resource and encouragement for other couples who are adopting. Updates might be a little slow at first, but should pick up as time goes on.

For those of you who haven't heard yet, we have started the process of adopting from Uganda. We don't know the child yet, but we are applying for a male age 18-36 months. We are being told that we could have our son home by Christmas 2007, but we are trying not to get our hopes up too much. The reality is, we have a son living in Africa right now!

We will also use this space to keep you updated on what's going on in our lives in general. We have a busy year ahead that should include: the release of Matt's first music album, mission trips to Kenya and Guatemala, church and work activities, ministry opportunities, and finally the big trip to Uganda.

Hey guys! Welcome to the world of blogging! I like your reading list on the side -- I also highly recommend this book: "Toddler Adoption: The Weaver's Craft" by Mary Hopkins Best.
Looking forward to following along on your journey through this blog! It'll be AMAZING!

Yes. Welcome to the blogosphere. You've been added to my list. I'm excited about your new son (mine's due in about 3 weeks) and what's this about a music album?

I look forward to the posts, so keep 'em coming.

Welcome to the fun exciting world of adoption. Like Cydil I have a book to recommend. It's Secrect Thoughts of and Adoptive Mother. Also It's a Family Affair is a good one for your families. We just got back with Baby Blu Thursday night from Guatemala and big brother Cristobal is adjusting well. Let me know if I can help in any way.

Love your blog(1st I've been on). When the fact that I'm already an aunt sunk in, I actually started crying. Will keep praying for you and Hunter's first cousin!!

Also putting in a plug for Kingsbury's adoption collection: quick read that's very encouraging!

Love and Miss you both!!!!!!
