"Sometimes I'd like to ask God why He allows poverty, famine, and injustice in the world when He could do something about it...but I'm afraid God might ask me the same question."

I am so excited, because today we got an update on our little one in Ethiopia! We received a new picture and some measurements. She is a little peanut...can't wait to scoop her up and see how it feels to hold a little one again!

We are relaxing this week and enjoying our "spring break" from school. The kids have been doing a lot of hanging out with each other. It is so nice to stay home and not have to run around every day. Unfortunately, we woke up to a spring snow storm today...only in Wisconsin!

I am also super excited to say that I will be attending the Christian Alliance for Orphans Summit in MN later this month. It looks like it will be an amazing conference. I can't wait to meet some of you in person. I am especially excited to meet some of the bloggers that I have been following through the blog world for over a year. In addition to meeting blog friends and listening to some amazing speakers, I will get so see my favorite Christian singer, Steven Curtis Chapman, again. It will also be a ton of fun to travel to the summit with some great friends and fellow adoptive parents. I can't wait! Let me know if you'll be there!


  1. so fun to get an update! can't wait for you to hold her in your arms. the summit will be an amazing opportunity. wish i was going to be there too!

  2. I'm SO excited that you got an update! My hubby will be at the conference. I won't be able to leave Grace, so he's going on my behalf! Happy for you~

  3. Yeah!!!! So exciting! Can't wait to see her little face. She will grow hair quickly, no worries. Bella was such a peanut. Don't buy too many things bc you will be amazed how much she grows:) And even when she grows five inches in 6m, you will still think she is the baby she is. If you want send me her measurements and I can give you an idea what Bella is wearing in comparison. j dot jennifermorgan at comcast.net. Praying for a smooth court process.
