oh, hey.


It is with great joy and incredible excitement that
Doug & I have accepted a referral for an 8-month old baby boy!
We are awaiting information about our court date for "Baby Boy B".
We are keeping his Ethiopian name as his first name,
so we can't share that information on the blog yet.

We're also not allowed to share any pictures via the internet,
but we have hard copies that we'd love to show you in person.

Thank you for your continued prayer & support in this journey!
We can't thank you enough for all the love we've been shown.

God is so good.

  15. Welcome to the YWAM Family and Congratulations on your little boy! (I saw your name on YWAM's facebook page and went looking to see if you have a blog. Glad you do!) We became parents for the first time through ET adoption, brought home our two littles in July 2010. Love your blog title! Looking forward to following the rest of your journey.
