Color 4

So here is the big adoption story change in a nutshell. We got a call from our adoption agency last Wednesday during the blizzard telling us that Haiti is not an option for our family as the draft of the new law states that at least one parent has to be 35 years old in order to adopt from Haiti. So basically overnight we had to chose a new country. This has been very hard emotionally, because we really felt led to adopt from Haiti. So complete change of direction was a lot to take. We have decided on Ethiopia. We had our first meeting with our Social Worker last Thursday and that went very well. We are slowly making our way through the mountain of paperwork. It is more emotionally draining than I ever thought it would be as they ask a lot of very person and in depth questions. Keep on praying for us please. We appreciate all the added prayer we can get.

On to color for the day. Not an outside picture you will notice, but will also notice the sun streaming in the window. That was the happiest part of the day.

A game of Chinese Checkers counts as math right?

So sorry to hear Haiti isn't going to work out for you. I'm worried that Haiti will end up not being an option for us either because of our bio kids. I still feel strongly that we belong there so we move forward in faith believing God will make a way. Bless you on your journey to Ethiopia.

The Lord always knows what He's doing. He knows there's a child out there for you and knows that this child needs you in their life. It's disappointing when things don't work out the way we thought they would, but I know you're going to be amazing parents to this child no matter which country they come from!
