"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we would be holy and blameless before Him. In love He predestined us to adoption as sons through Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the kind intention of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, which He freely bestowed on us in the Beloved." Ephesians 1:3-6

One Year!

Today it has been one year since we made it official we were adopting from Ethiopia.  It was this day one year ago that we were fingerprinted and we started our paperwork.  We are so thankful for the smooth journey that God has laid out for us over this past year.  We continue to trust in His plans for our family and know His timing is perfect.  I will email West Sands next week for our new September number (hopefully it's a new number!)  and will update as soon as I hear from them.

If you are in Arizona, mark your calendars now for October 13, 2012!  We are holding a fundraiser that will be a dinner and silent auction.  We already have some great items and services that will be auctioned off!  If you have any suggestions for us, we would love to hear them or if you would like to donate any services or items to be raffled, please leave a comment or contact us directly.

Thank you for your continued prayers.  In addition to praying for our child and this adoption process as a whole, please specifically pray for this fundraiser.  We hope to get a very good turn out and have a lot of items to auction off.

August's Number

Our current position on the waiting list is.....

We moved a lot last month!  We are friends of West Sands Adoption Agency on facebook and just saw today that they gave out six referrals today.  I'm not sure if this number reflects those six or not. It's so exciting to watch this number get smaller and smaller as we get closer and closer to meeting our child!
