My last post pricked hearts, just like I prayed that it would! I have had lots of phone calls and emails from people telling me that they are now considering adoption because God used our blog to touch their hearts! Yeah! That is why I blog. I am generally a pretty private person and was unsure if I wanted to start a blog but I knew God was going to use it "for HIS glory" hence the name of my blog. Please call me with any questions! If I cannot answer them I will direct you to someone who can.


We have continued to have amazing things happen financially! Just over the weekend we received $750 in donations. That is so huge and encouraging to us!


Click here to check out this post from one of my favorite blogs. This family just returned home with a little 4 year old boy from Ethiopia. He is beautiful!! They took pictures of other little boys in his orphanage that need families now. Can you help?

I AM DONE WITH OUR PAPERWORK! We are finished with home study visits and our social worker is now writing up our home study. We'll keep you posted!

We love the T shirts you guys have on the blog. Great stuff...

As a fellow adoptive parent, I also thought to write and tell you about the new guest home in Ethiopia specifically for adoptive parents and volunteer groups for the benefit of orphans in Ethiopia. Now that it is up and running, we would love to share the vision with other adoptive parents. You can see more at http://www.ethiopiaguesthome.com.

If you would like to post a link, send me an email at dave@ethiopiaguesthome.com and I’ll forward you the information.

Blessings,
