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??

The "Lull"

Well, it's Friday and we're in a bit of a "lull"...we've packed a little this week, Ben got his travel immunizations, we had our "travel webinar" with West Sands to go over travel do's and don'ts, etc....and now we wait. 

We're still selling some of the yard sale items via Craigslist, so that's AWESOME!:)  And we've had two more generous donations this week, so our little ticker over there is moving on up!  YIPPPEEE!

On the downside, we learned that there is a $50 per day transportation fee while we're there, so that will be an added expense..

Also, we still need to find a home for two of our boys while we're gone.  Everyone is busy this time of year, etc..and we're just having a hard time.  So, would appreciate your prayers in that matter...although it might help GREATLY if we had an actual TRAVEL DATE so we can tell people when we would need help;)!  Um..hoping that's TODAY, by the way:)!

We also talked with an Abba Fund rep. and she agreed to go over our app. asap, since we are expecting travel soon...but we haven't heard back...not sure if that's good :\.

So, that's where we are today....waiting....trusting...HOPING for good news today!

PLEASE keep praying for us!!  God IS faithful!:)



  1. I thought it usually takes 1-2 months to find out a court date after referral. Do you guys know when your court date is?

  2. It normally does, but the last couple of months referrals have been slower, so the court is not nearly as full as it normally is, so it's only been taking about 3-4 weeks till court..from referral. So, they're trying to get us in before closure for the rainy season.. We'll see;)

  3. That would be great. Hows the fundraising going?

  4. Fundraising is HARD!! The three online stores don't see much traffic;)..I think because most people just want to donate directly? We're still selling stuff(you know...like everything that's not nailed down;))... We're putting the need and options out there, so it's in the Lord's hands..and we're good with that:)..
