Time to Start Blogging

I figure one day when the wait is over and Addi May is home, people will actually be interested in what I have to say.  So I figure I better start blogging now so I can work through all the kinks and get a little more comfortable with the online publishing.

Reading Adoption Blogs is one of my most favorite pastimes.  This Blog is amazing and this is her amazing giveaway!
Check it out!

These women on these adoption blogs are who I aspire to be like.  Incidentally, they are very Christlike.  They display the heart of Christ in everything they do.

Happy 6th of December.

License Plates for Christmas

Okay I finally am launching the sale of my license plates that have been ready for months. They are two images on one plate , what you see depends on the angle you are looking at it.
This is the plate on my car from different angles changing between ONE LESS to Africa with a heart over Ethiopia.  Mine is pink but if you want one for a boy then I will change it to red.  They are $25 and you can purchase through the Donate button on the side.

Can a move in our number bring comfort?

Micah got in trouble tonight.  He is having one of those days like when you know your 2 year old needs a nap because of their irrational response to things.  But it was 6:30 and he's not 2 he's 7 so I made him lay down on my bed.  After crying a little he shouts out, " mom what # are we?"  I cracked up at the timing .  It was like somehow if our number had changed it would bring him comfort.  Of course we hadn't moved up so when I told him his response was "STILL?????"--------the next 9 months should be interesting.  The boys have just started paying attention to our number on the waitlist.   I love it!

Welcome to our Journey

Here we are the last day of August and we are officially #59 on the waitlist for a girl 0-24 months old from Ethiopia and we are super excited about it.  We know we have many people who have been praying for our journey already.  At this stage in the process I feel like its time to announce our "pregnancy" so to speak.  Based on the time frame to this point it will be about 9 months from now until we see our daughter's face for the first time.  If not yet then very soon she will begin her life story and her journey to be part of our family. Please pray from the very beginning of her little life she knows she is loved!  We can't wait to see what God has in store for our family!

We are #97!

One week ago today we received our waitlist # for our baby girl from Ethiopia.  So Thankful- "God does not call the equipped; He equips the called."
