yeah baby

We are officially accepted into America World's Ethiopia program! I got the call this afternoon. As soon as I hung up the phone I cried. Wow, we are only at the beginning and I'm already a mess! It is just crazy that it is finally here...and He is doing this! We truly cannot wait for this adventure in bringing home our next child. I am already dreaming of him/her.

Don't forget to mark your calendars for May 2nd. at 7 p.m. Join us!

Praise the Lord! He has prompted your hearts to adopt a little one and has now blessed your obedience! :) It's no doubt many are praying and are excited for your journey. We're so happy to have another nephew or niece!

This is so exciting. As you know, adoption is at the center of my heart and I cannot wait to follow your journey. Oh how I wish I had a blog for our first...what special memories you'll be able to journal.

God's speed.

It is so exciting to see a couple with such a young family open their hearts to adoption. We are Ray and Theresa and we have seven children...soon to be nine once we get our official referral any day now. We will pray for your journey as you move through the adoption process!!
