Saying “yes” to the referral

As Suzanne wrote the other day, we received our adoption referral from AWAA at the end of last week. Yesterday we signed the referral acceptance to say, “yes, we will accept these children into our family.”

Suzanne put together a “care package” last night for the kids as well. Another AWAA couple is making their way to Ethiopia soon and they will bring the gifts over for us. Included are some small toys and things plus a note from us for each of the kids.

We were also blessed yesterday when Suzanne’s friend Bethany stopped over with a couple of balloons to help us celebrate. Thanks, Bethany, for your thoughtfulness.

  1. I am SO excited for your family! This is all so exciting! Thank you for sharing your journey with us! I can’t wait to meet the new members of your family!
    Love in Christ,

  2. SO EXCITED for you! We will be DTE this FRIDAY, God willing! It is so encouraging to see when siblings get to come home forever! Also, I pray that God inspires your writing so you can get a TON done before the new family members join you! Go Girl! :o)

  3. Congrats! We’d love to have you come check out our website and join the forum–lots of kindred spirits there encouraging each other in our adoption journeys and in parenting. Are you still actively fundraising? If you are, let me know and I will list you under other fundraising families.
