.an untitled post.

.an untitled post.  We have some BIG news around here.  surreal news really.  Our family is expecting two!  One is growing inside me, healthy and due to come out sometime mid-June.  And the other is a ten year old boy living half a world away in Ethiopia.

We are adopting again!

The whole family is excited, to meet their youngest sibling & their oldest brother!

This is an unexpected blessing that we are all excited about.  The boy we are adopting has been on our hearts for a while and was a major part of Tariku's adoption story.  He is a miracle.  A living one.  And he will bring so much more joy to this house.  We will share more of their story when the time is right.  For now we have other things to process.

We know that this may come as a surprise to a lot of people.  Honestly, it was a surprise given to us.  We appreciate all the kind words and encouragement already given.  Our friends have been a huge blessing.  Along with strength from the Lord.  

Right now we are preparing ourselves for this big change in seasons.  We are currently starting the home study process and preparing for a fast and quick dossier so we can bring our oldest home fast (because health wise he needs the fastest adoption possible).  We appreciate all the prayers said for us and for all of our children and we can't thank you enough for them.

Since this was totally unexpected we also appreciate any monetary gifts.  We are not even going to sugar-coat the fact that we will need to raise a lot of money.  We will.  And God will.  If you want to see a list of our fundraisers please go here.  Or to make any financial contributions please go here.
We THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts!!!
