(And if absolutely nothing about that statement means a thing to you, you can "catch up" here, here and here.)
Moving ahead, that is.
This blog has been in existence for quite some time but has been kept private until now. It has served as a diary of sorts; a place to store some of the details of what God seemed to be revealing in our lives.
And so, here we are....going public (with our news and with this blog).
After much prayer, much consideration, some trying to convince God that surely he didn't mean us; some rejoicing, some fear and LOTS of paperwork (and, really, it's only the beginning)........
WE ARE ADOPTING!
I have to be honest.....at this very moment, I feel like I should have SO much more to say but, really, what else is there?
We feel called to respond to the gospel in this manner. In His word, he said that he would not leave them as orphans. And we are His hands and His feet.
God has been so real in our lives in this regard and I will share more of this when I find my words....for now, we just wanted you to know and we covet your prayers for this exciting time for our family.
Somewhere in Ethiopia, we have a daughter; our boys have a sister.....will you pray for her too?
