Good news today - we received word from our agency that our in-country representative in Ethiopia has signed a contract with an orphanage that has children available for adoption (even infants). I don't know what that means as far as getting a referral, but I'm praying it means that our child(ren) is/are there waiting for us. And, with the court closures looming, we're really hoping to hear good news soon! From what I understand, there is still a chance that we could squeeze in before the closure.

So, I'm praying for two miracles this week - a referral for us and a referral for the other CHI family with their dossier in Ethiopia (Jenni & Jim). We would love to travel with them- THIS SUMMER! :)

I'm trying to keep my excitement level in check - nothing is guaranteed with all of this, but I also feel that we have to believe it can happen. We trust in God's plan, and we know that, with faith and prayer, anything is possible.


  1. I'm a prayin!! I just might have to dance around a fire or something too! :) Is there like a positive form of voo-doo or if I take a doll, name it Stacie and then proceed to put another doll in its arms, would that help??? Just kidding!(and I apologize if I offend any any readers!)

    I think the excitement is kicking in my ridiculous creativity. A little humor helps, too.

    I have an interesting mix of beliefs, but Isaiah has brought much comfort over the last year plus -- "Do not be afraid, for I am with you; I will bring your children from the east and gather you from the west..."

    I think I'm gonna have to bring that scripture up on my site soon, for it provides a good story!

    hang in there!
    From the good news today, I'm a Drunk-with-happiness-Mom-to-Be,

  2. Praying for a quick referral and EXACTLY the sweet baby/babies God has for you. :)

  3. What is this with the court closures?
