I am a lover of blogs;
Even a few stranger blogs.
When given a few free minutes, I sneak a peek.
I have been and continue to be encouraged, inspired, and challenged!
I have been moved to seek Him... Laugh at myself... Love with my whole heart... Live everyday to the fullest!
It's great getting a new idea, something fun to share, and I become inspired to write an update- including something "different" to our blog.
Thanks to those who share their lives, journey's, faith, ideas and more... with loved ones & strangers alike.
Going to update tomorrow with "Wordless Wednesday"... a post of only pictures!
(Here's hoping I've got some to share)
Have a blessed day!

For fun we have added a ticker to the "bottom" of our blog.
It depicts our journey since the beginning of the "paper chase".
It's our plan to change it or add another when our Dossier reaches Ethiopia (DTE) and our OFFICIAL waiting begins :)
Just for "ticks"... Enjoy!

We are officially in the "waiting" stage of our adoption!
Our dossier has been handed over, and making way to all respective stops; last we heard it was at our agency headquarters in Grand Rapids MI and will move on from there :) We were starting to wonder if we'd ever move to the next step...Praising God for His perfect timing!
In other news: Our youngest, S. started Preschool on Monday... As you can probably tell from his "smile" he was excited to do what his big sisters and brother do... Go to school.
We are very proud of your courage and determination Little guy. Love you xoxo

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11
We have now had the each of the necessary adoption documents "State Sealed".
In a matter of days, our Dossier will be ready for send off... First stop; our Adoption agency, then Washington DC for authentication, and final destination "Ethiopia".
