Our Story

Our Story
We witness a miracle every time a child enters into life. But those who make their journey home across time and miles, growing within the hearts of those who wait to love them, are carried on the wings of destiny and placed among us by God's very own hands.

Not flesh of my flesh, Nor bone of my bone, But still miraculously my own. Never forget for a single minute, You didn't grow under my heart - but in it!
~ Fleur Conkling Heylinger ~
Adoption is not the call to have the perfect, rosy family. It is the CALL to Give LOVE, MERCY, and PATIENCE.

One Step Closer

We got word today that our Home Study was approved by our International Agency and is in the final stages of getting signed and notarized.  The average Home Study takes 2-4 months to complete. We were blessed with an adoption agent who worked quickly for us and we were able to finish up our home study in a mere 6 weeks from our first visit.  I am keeping my fingers crossed that our USCIS approval will come with the same speed - the average wait is 6-12 weeks.  We have everything else ready and in order so as soon as we get approval from USCIS we can send our Dossier off to Ethiopia.  Then the waiting for our daughter really begins!  God is mighty and amazing and I know that His timing is perfect.  He has the perfect little girl waiting to join our family and He will bring her to the right place at the right time to be available for us.  One step closer...
