Adoption Update

This week I actually started a countdown at work!  We are only 19 days away from the court date.  Thanks for the continued prayers for a successful day!

Also, thanks for the response about the donations.  The children in Ethiopia will be blessed!

This week we received THREE more pictures of our little boy.  He is so precious.  According to the pictures, he is pretty flexible.  He looks great.  He is healthy and we can't wait to hold him.

If all goes as planned, we will be leaving for Ethiopia on either December 12 or December 13.  We will be staying there until January 10.  We are so fortunate to be staying with the parents of one of our friends that is from Ethiopia.   I plan to write them a letter this weekend.  I think their lives will change for a bit while we are there.  I hope they are ready! 

This weekend we are going to Oliver Winery and Bloomington with Syd and Katie.  I have lived in Indiana my entire life and have NEVER stepped foot on IU's campus.  It should be a lot of fun.  I am excited to be with friends.  

On Sunday, Rod and Megan are coming over to watch the football game.  It should be a fun time!  Go COLTS!
