I have no clue how to do all of this fancy computer stuff, but I figure I would give it a shot as I am starting to develop laryngitis from telling everyone our great news!
For those of you who don't already know, we are currently in the waiting stage of adopting a little daughter from Ethiopia. We started this process in our hearts many years ago, but started the paper work in April of this year. I have to say that while it has been an incredibly draining process, we have both grown in many ways. It is wonderful to know that God already has this journey planned for us and that all we need to do is have faith and rely on his strength, not our own.
We just were informed on Friday that our dossier is in route to Ethiopia, so now we are just awaiting a court date. I am so amazed with the fact that we already feel so bonded to her. I never anticipated to feel this way before even holding her in my arms, the only way I can describe it is that it is almost the same anticipation as when I was carrying my other children. That probably makes no sense to anyone else! OK, I'm tired and starting to babel, I will write a more coherent blog another day!
