Happy 2010

Happy New Year! Kenneth, Noah and I are so excited for what God has in store for our family in 2010. Lord willing, we will have two more little boys celebrating the holidays with us next year.

This week will be a big week for us as far as the adoption is concerned. Our dossier will be getting authenticated at the US Department of State and also the Ethiopian Embassy in Washington, DC. We will also go in for our fingerprinting appointment at the FBI field office in Louisville on Wednesday.

Our case worker at CCI said that we would begin talking about specific referrals once they get our dossier. I am not sure when we would actually get a referral, but it is at least another step closer! We can hardly wait to see our children and know how old they will be, what they look like, their names, etc. If you know me at all, you know that I will feel so much better once we can start planning logistics with specific children in mind. :) Car seats, beds, clothes, diapers, etc.

We pray that God will give you a wonderful New Year filled with all the blessings we have in Christ Jesus. It is truly a privilege to be serving Him another year. We hope that this year will bring us even closer to Him as well as a greater realization of His unfailing love for us through adoption.


  1. Congratulations on your decision to adopt! It sounds like things are going great and it seems to be moving quickly. It is truly an amazing and wonderful experience and blessing. We can't wait to follow your progress.

  2. Exciting stuff! I'm all about logistics as well! I was about to start tagging some of Harvey's clothes he has outgrown for consignment sales, and I really feel led to hold on to all of them to see if you can use them. Hopefully ages/sizes/time of year will all match up and you can use some of them! Can't wait to hear more about your boy(s)!!
