Like I need to get this off my chest. We are waiting for a police form that only the head of the orphanage can get. Problem is the orphanage our boys came from was shut down 4 weeks ago and the head of the orphanage was thrown in jail. He is still in jail. So we wait. I can't believe it has been 9 months since our referral. I am a very patient man but this is trying even my patience. Pray for our boys to come home.

We will be traveling sometime in January to sign the court papers (we can then post photos), come home, then return to Ethiopia 3 weeks later to pick them up! I can't wait! A bit nervous too...I don't have anything ready, let alone have 2 of everything!
We just cannot stop looking at Micah's picture! He is beautiful! Can't wait to get a picture of Kai. We are beyond happy.
Thank you to all of you who have purchased our books, prayed for us and have made this dream possible! Without all of you, we wouldn't be able to do this. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Well, It's official. We just sent our entire dossier all with state certifications to our adoption agency. It has been a long road and it feels good to finally get over this step. It is out of our hands now. Next our agency will get our paperwork certified by the US Government and then by the Ethiopian Government (after it's translated) and we are officially on the wait list! Should be another 4 or 5 months until we get a picture/referral. Can't wait.
Not only is a new world possible, she is on her way. On a quiet day I can hear her breathing.
Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.
It turns what we have into enough,
It turns denial into acceptance,
chaos into order,
confusion into clarity....
It turns problems into gifts,
failures into success,
the unexpected into perfect timing,
and mistakes into important events.
Gratitude makes sense of our past,
brings peace for today
and creates a vision for tomorrow.
