Help us bring home Rose

I am back from my extended vacation from blogging. I was too exhausted by the end of the day to really do much on my blog and I spent so much time and energy on reading blogs and posting on mine, I just needed a break. But I am excited now to get back into it.
I don't want to kill you with boredom and post about everything that has happened since July, but the highlights are:

*we finalized in ND for Addis and we are working on getting her social security number and citizneship
*we are starting our second adoption
*we dedicated Addis at church, which is such an amazing thing to stand up there with your child and give them back to God and then have the congregation witness and agree to help you along the way.

So that is why this blog is now Part II of our adoption journey. I guess it's not really another part, it's completely seperate, but it just sounded better than- Next adoption journey.
This isn't just to update people about how our process is going, but to hopefully inspire others to do the same or get involved somehow. There is a way for everyone to be involved and we want to encourage ACTION not just sympathy.


  1. That is so awesome! We are so excited for you all! Good to have you back in the blog world!

  2. You are adopting again? How wonderful!!! From Ethiopia?

  3. Okay, just read more. It is wonderful you have decided to adopt from Haiti! Great news!
