Good News!

 Hello Friends,

I'm so excited to finally be able to post with wonderfully, exciting news!!!  Following the last update post I posted-- we received an email to let us know that T & A's paperwork was finished and we had been submitted to Embassy on Wednesday February 16, 2011 (which would be Tuesday night our time)!!  We are so thankful that we were submitted and are looking forward to Tuesday when (Lord willing) we will find out our next steps to take!

Currently, within our home~
  • Daddy and Mommy are notarizing and filling out a bit more important paperwork.
  • We are learning to look at a picture and then guess what shoe sizes the children wear.  :)
  • We've been getting together clothing for them to wear home.  Special note: Thank you for your help, Ashmore family!  You've been a blessing in this area and it's fun to see Bethany's and my old dresses again! ;)
  • We are preparing to pack and have been buying important items that are needed at the Care Center.
  • Last, but not least- we are praying for the Lord to lead us to new beds and a larger van.  :)
Thank you for your prayers!

Stay tuned!  Hopefully, I'll try to post some pictures of packing and some other fun things!

Our Agency (IAN) can only submitted to Embassy on Wednesdays...  so if we are not submitted tonight (which will be Wednesday in Ethiopia) we will have to wait for several more weeks (Embassy closes after this for a few of their holidays).  So, should your family think of us this evening, please be praying for our two little ones in Ethiopia.

Thank you!

Moving Along: Slowly, But Surely - Part 3

We are so Thankful to have now received our little girl's birth certificate and are now looking forward to knowing that we "have" her passport along with all the paperwork for the two little ones. 

Lord willing I will update again soon regarding Embassy!

Praising the Lord,
