We have tickets to Ethiopia. I can hardly believe it, I am so excited and feel very overwhelmed at the same time. Now to start collecting things/supplies for the orphanage. Let the count down begin 42 days :-)

We received a call on Wednesday Jan 12 from our case manager informing us of our court date. March 10, 2011 we will stand before a judge and say YES! to becoming Adia's parents.
Please pray as we are now working to get plane tickets, shots, and 2 papers yet renewed. We are so thankful for all the the Lord has done, and are excited to continue to trust Him on this journey.

I Woke up this morning to a wonderful surprise. A kind family that traveled to Ethiopia for I believe their 1st trip, took time to get us some pictures and a 30second video of Adia . What a great way to start the day. She looks so healthy , and for that I am thankful. She has the biggest eyes, you just get lost in them. and her skin is just so smooth and clear, I can't wait to kiss her chubby cheeks and get my fingers into those beautiful curls.

6 months

Happy half birthday to my precious Adia. I can't believe you are 6 months old. We have only known your sweet little face for 6 weeks, but know you have us all wrapped around your chubby little finger:-) Daddy,Mommy & your big brothers love you so very much and are longing for the days we can hold & kiss you and tell you how precious you are. We know that God has big plans for your life and are so blessed to be a part of it.
