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:).



  1. Thanks for sharing, i have been wondering what is going on. I think you are right about the big meeting putting a kink in things. i am feeling pretty down myself about the whole thing and am trying to accept the fact that our son probably won't be home again this year. So we are not going to hold back on going on vacation after all, it is soo frustrating to put your life on hold because you have to have vacation days to travel just in case! Did you see someone has been waiting for over 4 years for a healthy child under 2! So really don't believe it will be this summer that we travel. keep me posted on your travels..

  2. Sent you an email! Not that there is any good news in it! :( I can't stop watching the videos... even though I have them memorized! I am hurting... I am so sad. I just don't know how long I can go on like this... BUT I WILL, if by the grace of GOD alone!

  3. I hope you get good news very soon. Just know, that all the waiting is well worth it in the end and all of the frustration goes away quickly once your child is home in your loving arms.

  4. (((HUGS)))
    Do you not find out the court date before it happens? Gosh, I'd go nuts with wondering! Surely everything has been sent to the courts already. I'm thinking positive for you!!!
    Tomorrow marks 108 days since I left Kullen...and I have 14 more to go. 122 days is a LONG time and I wish that I could tell you that it gets easier as more time passes, but it doesn't. I'll say a prayer that you get very good news soon! I'm quite sure that you will be back in Sofia by mid-May with your little girl in your arms!
    I understand about the videos too. I have just started watching the videos of Kullen. It made my heart hurt too much to watch them before...and it still does. He's worth the wait though....and boy have I reminded myself of that a lot through the past 108 days!

  5. Hi Renae, just found out the minister is out of office till after Easter, so no sigs this week for me :(! Praying she has signed yours already!
