We have been so busy this past month trying to update our home study for Ethiopia. It is stressful redoing everything that you have already done once. We are almost done with everything except getting a new marriage certificate and new birth certificates. We are hoping to get our I-600 approval for changing countries to Ethiopia soon. When we get it we can send our dossier off to Ethiopia. Hopefully, it will be by the end of December.
We decided to adopt a boy between the ages of 12 months up to 3 1/2 years old. We are going to name him Connor. His middle name will be part of his African name. We want to keep something that his parents gave to him. We are doing an open adoption so that he will not lose his heritage while living in the US. We have been working on his bedroom so once we have a referral we will be ready. Here is a couple of pictures.
We are still excited about this adoption journey even though it took a different turn. God will not give us anything that we can not handle and He knows what we need before we do. We are trusting in Him to complete this adoption soon and with a healthy little boy.
Please pray for us and our family during this time. Please pray for my dad that he will change his mind about this adoption and be supportive of us. He doesn't believe in adoption and I hope us adopting will change his heart!
