2 months!

I was so happy today when I visited our site and noticed we were at 2 months of waiting!  Crazy!

We were so blessed last week when we were given an envelope with a very generous donation in it!  The gift was anonymous, so if the person reads this blog, thank you so so much!!!  It was a wonderfully sweet surprise.  
We are also very excited that Phil's CD is almost done!  Only a few more things and it will be ready to go to print.  This is such a relief to us and we are just so excited to see our next fundraiser come into place.  I am so proud of Phil and the work he has done on this project.  He is so talented.
I am also excited to report that the first travel group after the reopening of courts is in Ethiopia right now picking up their children.  I read their blogs and look at their pictures and just cry!  It is so amazing to watch these families being united, and also to think that we will be in that same place in just a few months. 

Wow.  God is so good.

Phil and Amber -
It will be time to travel before you know it! The waiting is the hardest part, but so absolutely worth it! We are members of Apex and we just adopted our son from Ukraine in September.

I found your blog "on accident" (is there such a thing?) through Emily and Josh's website. I'm excited to see how God is using you through this whole process!

Congrats on two months of waiting down! Hopefully the rest of the wait goes quickly. I can't wait to hear the new CD.

With Love,
