Here are the Pre-Ethiopia Shenanigans. Can I just say, I had the best caregivers EVER while we were gone? My kids were never alone. Also, they never were wanting attention or love. Plus, they got all their schoolwork done, which is a feat, in itself. No one missed a beat. We didn’t have a busy schedule planned, while we were gone, but there were still things like therapy and church that had to be attended to.
I was so at ease, even with a lack of phone communication, with the children. The Lord saw fit to allow everything to come together smoothly. I was pleased to have some internet access and text messaging to get me through the “I miss my kids” moments 🙂 A humble THANK YOU to all who helped whether physically, spiritually, or any other way! My family thanks you, from the bottom of our hearts.
There are so many people who have prayed, donated, supported, and carried us during this journey. I feel like we are all adopting this sweet boy. Honestly, once we saw his picture, I felt like I had known him all my life. In all seriousness, I have known him my whole life, or at least since I was ten. That is when the Lord gave me the vision that I would be in Ethiopia, adopting an older boy. He was knit in my heart from the beginning of time and now, I get to meet him and hold him. It is unbelievable to see my dream come true.
