Back to Ethiopia!

"Pure, unspoilt religion, in the eyes of God our Father, is this: coming to the help of orphans and widows in their hardships, and keeping oneself uncontaminated by the world." James 1:27

Tom and I and all of our children are so happy that we will be welcoming a new son into our family... three and a half year old Feyissa, from the Hadiya region of Ethiopia! We're not sure how long it will take since the adoption process has changed some in Ethiopia. Also, we found Feyissa on a waiting child listing, so the order of completion of some things is different, and we're using a different, larger agency. There is a lot to work through...

But for today, I'm just happy to be able to share the news.

That is awesome! I look forward to hearing more info on this little guy. Lisa says everyone is waiting on a court date right now. Here's praying that a date is in the making for all of us. ;)

So happy to read this news Paula!! That is awesome! Praying things go smoothly in the process. I am finding myself much more at peace with the process the second time around, after seeing God's faithfulness with Luke. Hopefully you will too!
