Today’s Tuesday Topic comes from Cassandra who asks,
We’re in the middle of our first adoption and our agency just told us they expect we have another year before we can travel to bring home our daughter. We would love to buy a forever home rather than renting and possibly moving several times to upgrade the size of our home. Since we now know we have a year to wait (unless God decides to move things along!) my husband and I are seriously praying about buying a house before traveling.
We want a big family (at least four kids, our family will be built entirely through adoption, probably older girls). How do we determine how much house to buy? We have dreams of a big family but only God knows how many children we’ll be able to adopt. Do you have any insight into buying a home before we know the size of our family?
This is a nice practical question that I’m sure many of us can weigh in on. Please share from your experiences, both positive and negative. Does your house work well for your family? If you could change it, what would you change? Have you moved or remodeled in order to make your house work better for the needs of your family?
As you all know, we’ve had significant challenges with our house not meeting our family’s needs. I appreciate that Cassandra and her husband are weighing this out now.
I hope you’ll take a moment to share your thoughts; I would love to hear from you. Have a great day, friends.
