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!

Adoption is not the call to have the perfect, rosy family. It is the CALL to Give LOVE, MERCY, and PATIENCE.

The Wait Continues...

I LOVE summer time.  The fun outdoor activities, staying home with the kids, swimming, camping.  As the summer continues on at its usual pace, my heart is sad each time we experience another summer activity without Nahome here.  As I walk through life the last few weeks I feel like I am daily saying "Nahome would LOVE this if he were here."  Camping, Swimming, fishing in the boat with grandpa, going on the four wheeler, watching fireworks, going to a drive-in, roasting a marshmallow....this mama heart is aching for her boy today!

I know, however, that GOD's timing is PERFECT!  We are still waiting to hear about a court date for "B's" case and are prayerfully hopeful that it will be around the same time we travel to go pick up Nahome.  We got an encouraging email that courts in Ethiopia will not be closing until August 22nd (They closed on August 6th last year)!  This is amazing news and will allow us time to hopefully get our paperwork back from Homeland Security that we will need to PASS court for B.  BUT - it seems so very far away when we were hoping to go pick up Nahome sometime in July.  It will be 2 weeks on Wednesday since we have been submitted to the US embassy to get clearance to bring our little man home - we still haven't heard anything regarding our case or a possible birth mom interview.

I TRUST that His ways are higher than mine - that HE knows what is best for US!  Hoping to watch it all fall into place SOON!  Please don't stop praying, friends!  Let's get these boys HOME!

  1. Prayed for you often through the night last night. When I lay down my head, and every time I wake up, I'm so aware that they are hard at work in Ethiopia. I anticipate another night of praying!
