We are so excited to share our Ethiopian adoption adventure, and our CRAZY lives with all of you! Our hope is that it will encourage you to step out in faith to do what God has called you to do! There are FIELDS of fatherless children waiting for someone to care for them, to love them, to tell them of JESUS' love for them...will YOU be the one??

Our I800A approval came this past week!! Yea!! And it only took a little over a month! So, to all of you waiting..it won't be long!! Now we have to do one more set of fingerprints(a repeat) and that should only take a couple weeks at the most. Then we're off to notarize/certify everything. It has taken us five months to get this far..I used to wonder why it took families so long during this phase of the adoption..now I know..you spend most of your time waiting on other people!!

My daughter prays every night for her baby sister...and she always wants to buy her stuff(she is so much like me!!). She has questions like, "Will her mommy be sad when we take her?" She thinks about this so much deeper than the boys. I hope through all of this that my children understand that they are so loved by God.. and that one day He is coming to take us home..just like one day(hopefully soon) we are going to bring Ava home, to her forever family. We love you already baby Ava and we know that Jesus is holding you tight!
