Documents Headed to D.C.

Our dossier is complete and authenticated by the state of Kentucky. It is on its way now to Washington, D.C. Hopefully, by next week it will be on its way to Ethiopia. Yay!

So...Now We Try Ethiopia

With no foreseeable movement in Uganda or Guatemala and with our previous adoption paperwork expiring, we began prayerfully considering the possibility of trying another adoption program while we wait. We have officially entered an adoption program through Ethiopia. There isn't much we can tell you right now...we are pretty wide open with age and gender. We won't be matched with a child until all our paperwork is sent in, which we are feverishly working on right now. We hope to have our paperwork (dossier) submitted by next week. Please pray with us that this will move forward quickly and that we will not singlehandedly shut down another country's adoption program. (We kid, we kid. But seriously...)

Amy's New Job

Amy had her last day of work at Asbury College this week. She is now working full-time as an adoption caseworker for Adoption Assistance, Inc, doing homestudies and post-placements for adopting families. We are very excited about this new opportunity for Amy to work in a field about which she is so passionate.
