I couldn't believe it yesterday when I heard that 3 people we know are adopting. Not only are they adopting but from Ethiopia!! These are Godly families that we will be able to raise our children with!!! You feel such a special bond with others who are going through the same process. I cannot believe how God is calling people out to adopt around us. I know the importance of our children cherishing their heritage and having friends from the same country to grow up with!
I have people often call me or see me and say that they would like to adopt. I have a list of about 20 families that have shared that with me and I have a prayer list. I pray that if their calling is from God that He wouldn't give them peace until they followed through.
I am expecting our I-171 within two weeks! That would put our dossier in Ethiopia in December. What a wonderful birthday and Christmas gift that will be for us! Stay tuned.... I will post when we get it.
