Our little boy Caleb doesn't need to be told twice when Daddy tells him to go "put on your boots"! He doesn't know where he's going, doesn't know how long it'll take or how much it will cost; All he knows is Daddy asked him to go spend quality time with him and that's all it takes for him to obey. We have heard the same request from our heavenly Father concerning adoption. We are embarking on this adoption adventure with Him not knowing the where and how; All we know is God wants to spend quality time with us and teach us who He is on a deeper level.

DTE - 8 months!

Eight months ago our dossier made its way across the ocean and all the way to Ethiopia (DTE, Dossier To Ethiopia). A lot of you ask how the adoption is going. Well, just like a pregnancy has its nine months of waiting, we too are anxiously waiting to meet our son. The waiting time for a referral is estimated at around 10-16 months.
Meanwhile, when things seem to be moving very slowly, God is at work. He amazes us with His faithfulness to His word. He continues to provide financially as well. Last month we received two large grants totalling more than $4000.00. WOW!
Two years ago, this adoption adventure was like Everest to us, unsurmountable. But with the God of the universe as our personal chauffeur everything seem so easily doable.
To God be the glory!
