We're Number One! We're Number One!

It is getting exciting now... We got word last week that we are next in line for a referral of a little girl in our age range (2-4). While this news is super exciting (and a little scary), it could still be a while longer before we get "the call" with the big news. It could be days, weeks, or even months, but I know in my heart that she has already been chosen for our family and we will just have to wait for her to be revealed to us. We will keep you posted as soon as we have more to share.

In the meantime...look for upcoming raffles, fundraisers and cool t-shirts (even one designed by our daughter). More to come soon! Thanks for following our journey to Ethiopia - what an exciting ride it is!!!


  1. Thank you for your comment on my blog. You are going to love Ethiopia and the people. My husband and I can't wait to go back! I hope my recap of my trip helped and gave you some encouragement. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask. Can't wait to check out your blog more too!!

  2. Thank you for commenting. I am so excited for you to get your referral. I can not say enough about the age...yes, we were scared, too. It is truly an amazing experience. I will enjoy watching from afar...you getting your referral and then you bringing her into a family. Now I have to go back and check out the post on the book club:)

    If you ever need to bounce ideas off of me ... my email is j.jennifermorgan at comcast . net Which agency are you using?

  3. So exciting to be number one in line for a referral! I will call this week to catch up, with the move and my mom in town life has been a bit crazy! Praying for your little girl!

  4. yay! i know it still may be awhile, but it feels pretty good to be sitting at the #1 spot. i am so excited for your family!

    p.s. i can't decide now if i like jack's hair better long or short. :)
