It will be approximately 3 months until she's home in our arms forever.
In the meantime we do all we can as far as it's depends on us.
We are uncertain if we will be traveling to Ethiopia one or two times,
But trusting in God's plan & provision for each next step.
Did I mention, we are in LOVE???
Please keep us in your prayers... and we will keep you posted!
"I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you HOPE and a fuure." Jeremiah 29:11

this is what we know.
3 more referrals.
3 more sweet babes matched with their "forever families"
3 more times my heart lept for joy.
The anticipation of adoption is hard to explain.
The wait to see the face of the little one created to grow up in your family is so many things;
Having had the blessed privilege of welcoming children into my arms through pregnancy I now know both similarities and differences in the adoption journey...
Like pregnancy; you long to see and hold the child you know will become part of your heart & life forever.
Unlike pregnancy; you have absolulety NO idea when to expect the little blessing--not the month, not the season, not even the year. ???
The journey is much like a rollercoaster... one moment filled with confidence and the next consumed with fear & doubt you are not cut-out for the ride.
In "real life" I like rollercoasters... the wind in your face, the excitment and thrill of the next turn and hill--all safely beneath the hold of selt belts & other gadgets.
Verdict's still out on how I'm fairing this ROLLERCOASTER ride...
Resting in His perfect timing and plans for me and my family.
Seeking comfort in His truths.
Wanting to be filled with His strength and wisdom.
We are now #7 on the Forum Waiting List... Seem like we should be #5???
It's the winding part of the ride...
I can only imagine the work of those doing all they can to match these precious children to waiting families.
I can say that we trust their prayerful & difficult decisions....
Thank you for all you do for the glory of God!
And the journey continues :)

And it makes me happy.
Though, today has some brisker winds... the sun is shining BRIGHT!
And I love it.
