Where do we start?

Not knowing where to start, I guess we will just...well...start. :) Upon suggestion of my cousins and friends we decided to create an adoption blog. This will allow everyone to follow our process without us having to tell the same stories over and over and over again. It also helps us get the word out there about adoption and what we feel God has called us to. We are so excited and scared all at the same time. We have so many thoughts and questions swirling around in our minds as I am sure most adoptive parents do. This will be a place for us to share our feelings and struggles as well as our excitement and joys.
We are currently in a waiting period. It appears we need to have $5,000 in order for the adoption agency to allow us to continue on. So...we wait. We have decided to put our favorite family vehicle...our 05 Ford Freestyle...up for sale in order to make some of that money. We will have to use part of that money to purchase a...cough, cough...minivan....(I swore I'd never own one.) And then the rest should put a good dent in that first $5,000. We are trusting, praying and staying positive in this time. Please pray with us that the money comes so we can continue. God is bigger than a dollar sign!!!
Thanks so much for joining in this journey with us.We hope this blog helps you all keep up with the latest news on our Ethiopian adoption process.
