Waiting for our baby girl

Lilypie Waiting to Adopt tickers

Tuesday, January 19, 2010


Yesterday at 4:30 p.m. we received the phone call we had been hoping for, dreaming of. I was having coffee with my dad (we just moved across the country and started a new job but more on that some other time) and the phone rang. It was our America World family coordinator. She got Brendan on the line too and told us they had a beautiful 2-month old baby girl for us. I raced home to Brendan and Emma and we opened up her pictures on our computer. She is gorgeous and we are already head over heel for this baby girl who we have been waiting for for a year and a half (and dreaming of for the last 4 and a half years). We cannot show pictures of her on our blog until we pass court so you will have to take our word that she is a doll! We send off our referral acceptance this morning. In the next month or so we will have word on a court date and then should have a tentative idea of when we might travel to Ethiopia to bring her home. We praise you Lord Jesus. You are good!
