6 Days
I can't believe that next week at this time we will know if Amelia and Levi are officially a part of our family. Friday is the big day ( it will be Thursday night here in the U.S. when the court proceeding are actually going on). They are already firmly planted in my heart but it will be so nice to know that the Ethiopian government agrees and they are our children "officially".

Dave is upstairs painting Paige and Amelia's room. We are decorating it with lady bugs and dragon flies. We found the cutest wallpaper boarder. I can't wait to show you all when it is done.

Next Saturday my family is giving us an Adoption Shower. I feel so blessed to have so many people who are supporting our decision to adopt. This afternoon one of our neighbors called us from Toys r Us and asked if it was OK if they bought Levi a bike? How nice is that. I have been weepy all day thinking how loved our children are going to be.

I really feel like I am pregnant. My hormones are running crazy and I cry about everything. I hope I can get through the shower next week without totally losing it.

One things for sure....Friday I will be crying either way. I just hope and pray they are tears of joy and not frustration. Will you join me in praying Levi and Amelia home this week?

About Me...


I am a spontaneous, out going, daughter of the King, who is married to a wonderful guy who is a quiet, shy, non-spontaneous, scientist who also loves the Lord. Truly a match made in heaven! We fight and argue, love and laugh, every single day. I am passionate about orphan care and love to tell our story to anyone who will listen. This blog is dedicated to that journey.
