Our Adoption Journey Has Changed Course
A lot has been happening around our house over the past few weeks regarding our adoption journey.

Our adoption application has been approved and we received the "big packet" in the mail with all the paperwork and directions to guide us through this exciting journey.

Needless to say my desk is overflowing with forms, folders, and notes. I am just trying to keep it all organized right now. We have a great agency rep who is working with us. He is truly a God send.

In other news...we changed our adoption application from Russia to Ethiopia.

I won't go into detail about why we decided to switch. Just that it felt completely right and our family is very excited about the new addition to our family.

To say I am overjoyed would be an understatement. I have had that excited feeling in the bottom of my stomach for a month. I feel like I did when I found out I was pregnant with the other children. Very very happy.

So, the paper pregnancy has begun. I pray it will not take to long to complete. We all know how patient I am.

Now, I'm off to have a piece of cake and some ice cream. It has been calling my name all day.

Haven't you heard? I'm expecting. My cravings have already begun.

Exciting! Do you read Owlhaven's blog??? You can find a link to her on my blog if you don't. She just brought home her 3rd and 4th Ethiopian children.
Enjoy that ice cream!

Cool! May I recommend two blog sites for you to look at?

Mary over at Owlhaven http://owlhaven.wordpress.com/ has adopted several kids from Ethiopia and she also has a second site dedicated to information for Christian families adopting from Ethopia http://ethiopia.adoptionblogs.com/ I highly recommend both.

Congratulations on your 'pregnancy'!
A 'chosen' child to me is always symbolic of God 'chosing' to adopt us into His family !!
What a blessing awaits this child to be loved into your family!!

You crack me up.

I finally, finally realized you fell out of my bloglines. Ugh.

Now, I got a whole lotta catching up to do.

Pass the cake.

WOW! How exciting! I've known a number of women to adopt overseas, including Russia, S. Korea, Africa, and Guatamala. I can't wait to here about your newest blessing!
