approval

We got word this morning that All God's Children approved us to start the Ethiopian adoption program. It truly feels like we are pregnant. A nurse I work with (Jen M) said I had the pregnancy glow today. But this time is even better because I am not green and puking my guts out. We will keep you posted as to what's happening. The next step is for us to sign the contracts and send in a lot of money. We hope to start our homestudy in the next few weeks to month. We will see. -Amber

The Ball is Rolling

We sent our application in today to All God's Children. I thought we would feel more anxious but instead we are strangely peaceful.

We Are Alive!

After 2 weeks of pretty much non-stop action, we are resting at home. Right now Charlie is in bed and Emelia is riding her tricycle out back. The lawn in mowed, the garden is growing, the bills are paid...life is coming back together. In a huge way this is nice to finally be resting but in another sense I miss the hourly reliance on God. When you are doing something out of faith, every action and thought is about looking for and waiting on God.
The next step: we are finishing up our application. In fact we took the necessary pictures tonight. Once we send it in, the ball starts rolling. Wow!
