Praise the Lord!
We got the call today that we have been formally accepted by Bethany Christian Services to Adopt from Ethiopia.
We are considered at "low risk" for being denied from the Ethiopian government. But the agency is fairly confident that will not happen.
Next phase is the Home Study.
Once we sign our contract and pay for it (the first big payment!) we get thrown into the home study phase. I know that this will be a series of interviews through our agency and our local social worker.
Please continue to pray for our future child, our home study, and our far far off court date in Ethiopia.
Also - this is the first post that I'm making public! Please look around, read the posts from the bottom up (in time order) and let us know if you have questions!
We are officially a future adoptive family!
Also another way you can help - we are looking for someone to donate a photo session to us so we can do some adoption announcement photos.
And share this with as many people as possible!
