Life Happens

So we are trying to finish our list of “needs to get done before our home study”… With our schedules and finances, it seems to be taking forever. But it will be worth it!

We have decided to begin with a domestic adoption process. But as soon as we get that going, we will also be starting an international home study. We want to adopt a young child from Ethiopia. As we were talking and praying about this process, Ethiopia has become a passion. For me, (Shontel), East Africa is HOME. It just makes sense.

As for the domestic, we are simply hoping that the Lord brings us the child that we are meant to raise. We do not care about race, as skin color makes no difference to us. We are adopting. We do not need a child with our eyes or hair or who even remotely looks like us. *smile* We are honestly hoping for a crazy colorful family.

So now it’s time to start raising money for the home studies and adoptions!!
