Shine Like Stars

Shine like stars in the universe as we hold out the Word of life (Phil. 2:15)
We're not trying to be rock stars but just shed some light on a sad and lonely world. Stay tuned for how God works through weak and tired, sometimes really cranky vessels.

We inked ourselves

We have to send our prints in to get state clearance for the adoption. Michael thought we could do them ourselves. Hopefully it will work. (Michael says I sound sassy when I say that, I don't think I mean to, but maybe I do, who knows.)

Last week we got our adoption planner and we are officially in the Ethiopia program. We had a conference call with Christy yesterday and talked about the the paperwork we need to do. She's super nice and I'm excited about working with her. I warned her that I'll probably become her stalker over the next year. She wasn't too scared of me so that's good:)

So here's how it'll go--we'll work on our dossier which will take 2-3 months. Then we'll official be put on "the list" 6-8 months later we'll get our baby!!!
For now, we have so much paperwork to do with finishing up our homestudy stuff and starting our dossier, my head's spinning a bit. :)


  1. Even though it sounds like tons of work, especially of the paper variety, I could just feel your excitement in this post.

    Peace to you and yours as you wait!


  2. wow! i just got really excited! love you guys,

  3. Bring it on! The paper work is the easier part of it vs the waiting. Unfortunately!

  4. Man, I'm behind and need to catch up...congrats on getting the binder. The dossier is intimidating at first but it's really not that bad. The home study is what usually holds ya up ... we are currently waiting for AGCI to 'approve' the draft home study so it can get completed, put in our completed dossier and sent on to AGCI ... GOOD LUCK!
