About Us

Homevisit Day!

So, we are busy (or I should really say I am busy) cleaning. Our sweet social worker is coming this afternoon to meet Baby Sis and to have our homevist for our update. We haven't seen her in a year, and while I would have hoped that we would be making travel plans right now to bring our precious Calab home, I am just as happy to show our sweet girl off and to push forward with going to Africa.

God has taught me several lessons over the past year and unfortunately I still may be in the proccess of learning (what can I say...I'm stubborn like that sometimes). I do know that the longer we are in this, the more I need to point everything towards Him.

He is the reason we are going to Africa, (lets face it, staying home would be much easier)

He is the reason we are adopting, (cause we make pretty cute babies ourselves, and as my hubby would say...it's so much fun! Ha!)

He is the reason we have opened up our hearts to something other than a healthy child, (more on than to come)

He is the reason we are making this whole decision (it would be much easier to chase the "American Dream"

"...once our eyes are opened, we can't pretend we don't know what to do. God, who weighs our hearts and keeps our souls, knows that we know, and holds us responsible to act."
Proverbs 24:12
