We have officially signed up to begin our adoption through Christian World Adoption http://www.cwa.org/ They seem to be a really great agency and we're really excited to be working through them. So, right now it's application after application. We did finally decide on a homestudy provider which is a relief.
It seems that every which way we turn, we see God confirming that this is His work and He is in control. It's been really encouraging to speak with people who already have adopted and to hear about their amazing stories. The children of Ethiopia are so beautiful. We have requested to adopt an infant (either gender). It's hard to wrap our heads around the fact that this child could very well already be alive in the land of Ethiopia. We have already felt such a burden to be praying for our child's family during this time.
Please be praying for us over these next few weeks as we dive headlong into all the paperwork to be done, especially beginning our homestudy.
