April 23rd Court Date

Things are moving much faster than what we were prepared for.    God has big plans for this young lady and I can't wait to see what they are.  I am humbled that we get to be a part of it and I can't wait to be her forever family!!!

Isaiah 58:6-7

 6 “Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen:
to loose the chains of injustice
   and untie the cords of the yoke,
to set the oppressed free
   and break every yoke?
7 Is it not to share your food with the hungry
   and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter—
when you see the naked, to clothe them,
   and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood?

Let the adventure begin!!

Hi my name is Debbie and I am starting this blog so that family and friends can keep up with our newest adoption. 

God blessed us with a 2 yr old girl from Ethiopia this last year and we are now heading back to Ethiopia to adopt a 12 yr old girl.   

Where are we at in the process??
We just sent our dossier to the Ethiopian Embassy in DC.  We now wait for our fingerprint appt and court date.  Could be a few months and while we are waiting we need to raise some funds. I am applying for a few grants this week and pray that they will approve us.
