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.

The funny things they say!

Nardos is so comical about the English words she chooses to use.  For about a week, if she liked something, anything, she would rub her tummy and say "yummy yummy".  She has for about 4 weeks called her face "feet".  Lately, her favorite word is "tomato".  Not sure why she has latched onto that one, but it has replace "delicious". She also likes to tell me when I have done a "good job" - which is typically about anything I do from reading a book to combing her hair.

Beti has decided that "yep" is a good substitute for "yes" and is slowly coming up with phrases that she spontaneously produces like "can I have some".  Today for the first time I heard someone say "how are you"  and she responded "good".  Before now I am not sure she knew what the question was really asking.  She routinely mispronounces "swing" as "swim".

Oh the things they say!
