Our first family photo may just look like 4 happy people that don't really resemble each other all that much - and on the surface that's all it really is...

We are leaving this week, January 7th to travel to Ethiopia to get our boys! I haven't been able to sleep at night. My mind is racing with our list of things to do and imaging what our first encounter with our sons will be like.

Today is our Ethiopian Court Date. We found out the night before Thanksgiving that December 14th was our day. I can hardly function as we await the results. Once we are approved we will be given an estimated travel date. It's all just TOO exciting!!!

There hasn’t been much to write about this past week. We are waiting for the first draft of our Home Study report. The visits went really well. The hardest part of the Home Study was to make sure that our social worker understood when David was joking. He made me nervous a couple of times, but I laughed extra loud to make sure she knew he was kidding. Fourteen years of marriage and I still laugh at all (well most) of his jokes.
We expect to have the report at the end of this week. It will then be sent to our agency in Oregon for final adjustments. Daily I am reminded of the bible verse in Philippians 4:6
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
While I’m praying that God will enable us to bring our boys home as soon as possible, I’m so thankful for Hannah’s Hope. As far as orphanages go, this place really loves-on the children and provides a wonderful environment for them to grow as they wait for their forever family.
Below is a link to a video on Hannah’s Hope.
