We're In!!

WOO HOO, We have been officially accepted into the America World Ethiopia Adoption Program!!! We were told that we will have to fill out some initial paperwork, sign agreements, and make our first payment to get Scout. After that we will begin compiling our dossier (international adoption application)and completing our home study. This is such an exciting time in our family's lives. God has been so good to us, and has joined us with other families who are adopting or have already adopted. Please pray for Scout, the finances to support this endeavor, and that the home study and the compiling of the dossier would be put together without a mistake and in a timely fashion. We are thankful for all our friends and family who are encouraging and praying for us through this magnificent journey!!!
