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??

Fast Approaching!

Only FOUR more days till court!! YAAAAAAYYY! So excited, yet cautiously so...no more troubles, please!

Hopefully we'll get our travel dates that day also...then the official "freak-out" will begin:).

So, what have I been doing...well, my kitchen walls are stripped and ready for primer/paint....next the hallway(small hall)...then ripping carpet up in one of the boys' rooms...WHAT WAS I THINKING?????? I'm hoping we can get it all done before traveling...talk about NESTING:)! Kid's are wrapping up school... Not sure if I'm ready for the disruption of my routine that THAT will cause;)...

Prayer Requests:

*Chip-In button at the top says it all:) Yard sale fundraiser coming up June 11&12th!
*Pray that Ava is healthy, loved, and "ready" for us to take her home.
*Travel-UMMMMMM...still may travel alone...but ONLY if my friend Kelly travels at the same time..would be a miracle, but God did it before, and now I have a new friend:).
*Good health while traveling...HATE, HATE, HATE flying...!!!!!!
*That we would NOT travel the week of July 12th!! Our friends who are watching the kids for us will be out of town!!!! This is a HUGE request!
*That we would keep the LORD first in our lives!
*And...that I recover from my depression over the LOST series that ended last night...okay, this is a joke...but SERIOUSLY!!!


  1. Praying!!! I really want to travel with you! BUT I also really want to travel the last week of June! :)

    Not about Lost though, I refuse! LOL Do you watch Greys Anatomy? GREAT season finale!!!! :)

  2. I'm just so excited that the time is coming! We've been praying that the "difficulty" in assignment of the court case may just be used in a way to bless you all and to bring God glory. What could have been a stumbling stone, will create a beautiful path. Praying, praying, and more praying!
