One Down

Our first month of waiting is past us, and quite honestly, it wasn't that bad. We knew there was absolutely no way we would receive a referral this month, so we had a chance to relax and not think about it.

But that doesn't mean we didn't have plenty of other things to keep us busy.

I graduated with a Master's in Education.

Our beautiful niece was born!!!

And our wonderful cousin graduated from high school.

Needless to say, it has been quite a busy month with all these events and the parties and celebrations that go along with them. We also celebrated Mother's Day and my wonderful husband and gorgeous daughter spoiled me rotten. As great as the day was though, a big part of my mind and heart was a few thousand miles away.

I am sure the next month of waiting will not go by as quick. But we will take it as it comes and know that God will bring our child (or children!) to us in His perfect timing.

At least once a day, we hear "Where's my brudder-sisser?

how much it cost for our dossier to be shipped to Ethiopia.

Knowing that it is there on the ground: priceless!
