Once upon a time....

Flash back to 1999, we were a family of four. Happy in our new roomy house and comfortable in our ways. A few years later, the Lord blessed us with an additional little package, little boy #3. Now we were a family of five and sure that would be the end. As time moved on, so did we. The Lord used the time that passed to open our eyes to His will. Several years ago, Bob and I individually heard the call to adoption. It has been a long "pregnancy", but during this incubation time, the Lord has brought us to where He wants us to be. Spring 2010, we traveled to Ethiopia where two little angels were waiting for the Lord's timing - to become our children. Now we are home and can't imagine life any differently! What a blessing to be in His will.

Galatians 4:5 says "God sent Christ to buy freedom for us, who were slaves to the law, so that He could adopt us as his very own children." We are just following his model. A Perfect picture of salvation.

Here we go!

Tomorrow we are officially mailing the application, check and requested photos to Children's Hope International. Their "acceptance" timeline is about two weeks. Then we can begin the more detailed portion of collecting information and completing tasks (like fingerprinting, etc.) for the dossier (like an adoption portfolio). We are still waiting on MBCH to confirm that they can complete our international home study update, but we decided that we were wasting time just sitting on the application, so it goes tomorrow. We are trusting the Lord to take care of the home study thing. Check back for more details.
