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??

No News is....Well, NO News..

It's been a month since our letter was accepted and 2 1/2 weeks since we found out our paperwork was with the MOJ waiting for signatures.....SIIIGGHHH!!! So, what's going on...who knows! We just wait....and hope court has already, miraculously taken place and we passed:). That would be sooo great! We have no idea IF anything has been signed or even passed on to the courts yet...I'm a little afraid the big "meeting" last week actually set us back some...so what else is new?????????

I can't watch the videos of her, it's too hard...I just keep staring at one pitiful picture I have of her where she is laying her head on my shoulder and looks like she's been crying(it was just pink-eye...)...but I'm REALLY longing to hold her again!

I'm kind of envious of those adoption programs that give you updated info while you're waiting to bring your child home...it would be great to see how she's doing...or maybe it would make it worse...see, I'm a mess!

Ever notice how God's timing is NEVER the same as yours? All of you still waiting surely know what I mean! Forgive me for whining...

Oh well, until we have news...we have no news:).

And Forward We Go!

Just found out that our letter was accepted and all documents are now with the Ministry of Justice waiting to be signed. Then, off to court. This could still all take another 2-3 weeks, but at least we're moving forward again. I've never really felt like I needed to be kept constantly up-to-date about what's going on over there, as it pertains to our case that is, but after seeing friends suffer through this process, I'm learning to question things more and to definitely celebrate even these little steps. God is good!

Thanks for all your prayers and support!!!
