Still waiting for our girl…

Next month marks a year since we signed up with the adoption agency.  In many ways I feel further away from her than when we started.  I remember the week of intense prayer and excitement as we decided on beginning the process.  From morning until night that’s what consumed our thoughts and I was even waking up in the middle of the night to pray about it.  God answered our praters with several confirmations and led us to Ethiopia.  It still consumes our thoughts but in a less urgent kind of a way.  (most of the time)  I know she will come home to us in God’s perfect timing.  Now that we are getting closer we are beginning to organize our fundraising efforts, especially in lieu of the newly added second trip.  It seems like with each holiday that passes I find myself looking to the next and hoping she’ll be with us then.  So the next one is Halloween.  Come home to us sweet JJ so we can dress you up and your brothers and sister can show you off around the neighborhood.  We look forward to you completing our family.
