We want to wish everyone a very Happy New Year!! 2009 was a wonderful year for us because we changed from a family of 2 to a family of 3. God blessed us with the most perfect gift in 2009, a daughter. We cannot believe that Olivia has been home with us now 6 months. She has changed so much in the 6 months that she has been home. She is such a character and she has the most contagious giggle that I ever heard. One of the changes I want to make in 2010 is to keep our blog current. I want to share our adoption story with others and encourage those that are thinking about adoption. 2010 is going to be an exciting year for us. We have decided that if God will allow us we want to go back to Ethiopia to adopt 2 more children. We plan to start the process again late this summer or fall. We are waiting a little while because I am going back to school to get my elementary education degree and I want to be done with my student teaching before we go back to Ethiopia. We ask that you join us in prayer for all of the orphans all over the world that this will be the year that they will be joined with their forever families. I know that you really want to see pictures so my next post will include pictures of Olivia over the past 6 months and you won't believe how much she has changed and grown. Wishing you a year full of joy and happiness.
