The Journey Begins!!!

Last night, we cleaned the house. I really don't mind cleaning when I am in the mood to do it. (I which that was more often than what it is, oh well!) It is actually a party when we clean at the Ponsler household...music blarring, vaccuum running, washer and drying working, dishwasher doing its job. If you want to join us next time, let me know. I can hook you up for a good time!


After we were done, I decided to lay a blanket in the middle of the floor and light all the candles that I could find. It was so nice to just lay there. It seems like we have the TV on for noise and it was nice to have some relaxing music on and candles. It was one of those times that I thought, it is so nice to be in this moment.


On a different note, this morning we sent in our application to our agency!!!! This is a leap of faith for us. Chirs woke up at 4:00 this morning dreaming about this application. We have been thinking about the right time to do this due to finances and we decided that we would trust God that He will provide. This is the first step of many in front of us. We are really on our way to Ethiopia!

Hi Sarah! I know it has been a while, and I hope you dont mind me reading your blog, but I just wanted to let you know how touched I was by your story. We have several friends that are in the same situation and it makes you think about how we take having a baby for granted. Please let me know when you start selling all these things. Nick and I would love to help in any way we can. You will be in our prayers.

As I sit here reading Zac's blog and yours I'm crying my eyes out. Yes, thrilled to know you are going ahead with the adoption and the journey it will take all of us on. It has brought all of us close together , owning it with you and wanting to know all the details. Dad & I want to support you in every way that we possibly can. I'm so excited about our fund raising ideas and hopefully all of our friends will be too. Oh yeah one more thing I hope our deal is still on that when this little guy or gal gets here I get to have the little one every Friday nite so You'll still get some alone time and Grandma can do a little spoiling. Love to both of you, Mom

Hey Sarah & Chris!

We're so excited for you guys!

Good news, I think I can use my Northwest miles to get you one ticket to ethiopia. I'm not sure about the time restrictions and all that, but it looks pretty good.
