The Journey Home

Great news!!

Guess what, guess what, guess what??  (I'm a tiny bit excited!!)  As all of you know, we were referred to a beautiful little three-year-old girl from Ethiopia on Monday, March 7.  We fell head over heels in love with her the moment we laid eyes on her.  For real.  We have been praying and praying that the Lord would match us up with the child who was meant to be in our family, and boy did He.  After we accepted the referral we hurriedly filled out all of the paperwork, marveled at the way the Lord provided the money we needed, and sent everything off to our adoption agency.  

Here's the great news...

We heard back from our agency who said that everything looked to be in good order and they were sending our acceptance of Abigail Biruk Travis to Ethiopia!  

I thought that I was feeling impatient before we got matched, but since we know who our child is and what she looks like I feel like I could walk across the Atlantic to go get her!  Please continue to pray for wisdom and discernment for the Ethiopian government as they make decisions concerning adoptions; and please help us to pray our Abbi home.  We'll keep you posted!
