Country chosen...

Well we have prayed and fasted and have decided on adopting from Ethiopia! There was a lot to consider for us personally in this decision and we feel at peace about it!
We still haven't sent in our application yet, apparently we weren't prepared, didn't have all the paperwork we needed ready to be sent in. As soon as we get it we will fill out the application and send it in and the process will FINALLY begin!
We are so excited to go through this process! It feels more real everyday! And we are "One day closer" to receiving our baby boy everyday!

Other than the adoption, God is doing so much in our lives! He is rattling our comfort in so many ways. It's a very good thing, but as American's, it gets a little uneasy. But we are trusting Him to know what He is doing! And that He knows what we need to be most effective so He gets the most Glory!

Small update!

Nothing much has happened, we are still praying about which country to choose, we think we know but want to make sure!

We have to send a family photo with our application so we had our good friend, Carrie Holliday, take our pictures on friday...it was a lot of fun and I will get them back tonight! I will post some soon just so you can see! :)

We are hoping to turn in our application this week and I will let you know how that goes!

The fundraiser I am doing is...
... I'm asking any one to fill a baby bottle with change! simple and anyone can do it :) I will have baby bottles with a little tag to pass out soon, but if i don't see you and you want to participate, you can always just use an old one or buy a cheap one at walmart :)
Thanks everyone for wanting to help! :)
