Fingerprinting and Homestudy

We are so excited!! We have our fingerprinting appointment tomorrow as well as our first homestudy visit. We are praying God would find favor on us during this time. Thanks for praying with us through this entire process. We feel that God has a story using Lucy and we are just glad to be a part of it. We will eventually write down the backstory that brought us to adopting from Ethiopia but...right now we are up to our necks in paperwork (and organization and time management are not by strong-points :) ) We will let you know how tomorrow goes!!!

Yard Sale

I must just tell you that right now my house looks like a junkyard....but hopefully, all of this stuff will get us one step closer to bringing our baby girl home. God is providing for us in ways I never could have imagined. I am sure hard times will come but right now we are in such a state of peace about this adoption. I am writing this down and telling the blog world because I know there will be a day that I need to be reminded of this. Since beginning this adoption we have traveled through many states of emotions. But, today we are excited and trying to do all that we can to bring her home.

Email me at for more details on the sale. I will keep you posted on how it goes.

Yard Sale will be September 26, 2009 at 6 am!!!

Well, for most of you it is probably not a surprise but....we are in the process of adopting from Ethiopia. We are so excited and thrilled about getting our little girl home. We are at the very beginning of the process which takes about 18 months from start to finish. God has worked in amazing ways and we know that He will continue to do so. We look forward to telling her story on this blog. Please pray for God's favor to be on her and us throughout the entire process. We randomly picked our blog title out several years ago, but it seems that for the next year we will definitely be exploring, dreaming, and discovering... and we couldn't be any more excited about it!!!
