A year ago today......

One year ago today we started our adoption process. What a cool year it has been! We have learned so many things and met so many awesome people. We love to share our story with others. It has been amazing seeing God's hand working in our lives and the lives of those around us!!! We knew God called us to this adoption for a greater purpose than just adding to our family and we have already begun to see God changing hearts.

Yesterday we got a call from a friend telling us that we were the #1 family for an infant boy referral. So the next baby boy is ours!! I cannot wait for that call. My heart jumps every time my phone rings. I want to see that boy's face. I know once I see him I will want to jump on a plane and get him. We most likely will get caught in court closure in Ethiopia--meaning it will probably be the end of the year before we can travel to pick him up. :( That will be hard having a child on the other side of the world! But I know that God has him picked out just for our family and we won't travel a day earlier or later than what God has planned. This process teaches you patience and trust!!

I will let you know when I get the BIG CALL. I told Clay to answer his phone just like he had to do when I was nearing my due dates!!!
