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??

So, here's the deal, my hubby "misinformed" me this morning...we actually have until the end of March, before this income goes "bye-bye"...the GOOD news is, it looks like we will still be able to get our homestudy update completed with the income "as is", then when it is no longer there, our social worker will work with the numbers and see what we need to do to remain eligible(if we're not)...that is IF we don't have something lined up by then. I have the BEST HS agency in the WORLD...and the best social worker!:)(Ahem...Cherub International for all you in Ohio)

So, in one way I'm breathing a sigh of relief...for now...we have two months to come up with some "extra", AND we can still proceed with the HS we have almost finished.

On the other hand, I'm doubting EVERYTHING....was this God's idea to go to Ethiopia or mine??????

It just seems really strange to me that this happened RIGHT AFTER we made our adoption plans public! Too "coincidental", if you ask me...and seems to REEK of satan himself!

You know I'm not gonna go down without a fight, RIGHT???!!!:)

Thanks for praying...please keep it up...we need you as always!


  1. What? I don't check in for a few days and then find that you've already hit a bump in the road? Truly, this is just a bump in the road. Where there is a will, there is a way. Stay strong!

  2. Okay, I am hoping (in reading this) that you might possibly live in the same state as your home study agency? We have a little family there and my very best friend.

    I seriously can NOT wait to see how God works through your situation!
