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.

First Impressions

Beti asked tonight - "When did you first see my picture?"  I explained (in basic terms) how we looked at many pictures of many children on the computer and that we asked God and that He told us that Beti and Nardos should be in our family.  She asked, "What did you think?"  I told her we thought they were beautiful!  We didn't explore that much more, except to ask her what she thought when she first saw our picture.... she said "You looked tiny, Mom".  I guess in comparison to Bob's 6 foot, 1 inch height, I looked rather small.  That's.....Awesome!  :)
