Considering 2!

147 million Orphans!  Think of all the little people crying themselves to sleep.  Or maybe they don't cry any more because no one comes to comfort them, so why cry.  No one to tuck them in, and no home to go home to... where someone  "loves them most of all."  God seemed to whisper to our hearts....Why just one, when there are so many.  We are prayerfully considering adopting two children at the same time.  Our homestudy is approved for two, and if the USCIS approves us for two, then the only thing stopping us is our own fears......and finances.  We are trusting God to handle both of these concerns.  HOW BIG IS OUR GOD?
Big enough!  Please pray with us that His will will be done, and he will bring that child to us in some way, If we are meant to open our hearts to two.  And if not, that he will close those doors also.

Everyone we have talked to about adopting two at the same time, says "yes it is harder"  "yes it's more work"  It's double the fun......but double the trouble:) It's takes a lot of your time, and a little more effort to bond with two at the same time. It's NOT easy, but it's doable, and worth it.   We are concerned that we won't be able to give enough focused attention to Dayu's sign language, but at the same time.... while we are signing to her we can be talking,  and the other one can be learning sign and spoken english at the same time.  That would give Dayu some one to interpret for her in social settings  as well.  A sister/brother that could learn sign language along with her.  They will both have to learn one form or another.  We just have to learn English through sign, so we can teach it to them. Pray that we can learn to sign fluently!
