We’re thrilled to announce that…
We are going to have a baby!
Praise God, we have finally found an adoption agency and location from which we qualify to adopt.
Jon and I have been desiring kids for a long time. It’s a long story I won’t expound on here, but the irony of our situation is not lost on us.
While living in the US, we adopted internationally from Ethiopia. Now, living in Ethiopia, we are adopting from the USA. Lordwilling, our home study will be finished within the month and we could be ready for a placement at any time.
(At this point, it is not possible for us, as foreigners, to adopt from Ethiopia)
We wanted to show how happy all four of us are about it but…
This is the best picture we were gonna get, considering our time constraints, a cautious child who wasn’t sure about jumping, the non-cautious child with timing issues and that most of the other pictures show significantly more of Jon’s naval area.
It’s been a mountain of work and challenging, but hey, who has kids because it’s convenient?!
Thanks for supporting and loving us through all our ups and downs. Some of you already have read or heard this and have been praying. We continue to cherish your prayers.
