Wowza! It sure has been a roller coaster ride of emotions. As it stands the Summer Of Hope program will NOT be bringing kiddos from Ethiopia this year. We were heartbroken when we heard the news and did not know what to do next. We really felt in our heart that this was the child for us.
After much searching, praying, talking, an international adoption agency has agreed to let us adopt her!! The whole thing is really backwards, as far as traditional adoption goes, but we and the agency are going to make it work for us. Wahoo!! The agency that we are using has gotten some bad press lately but I will say they have been GREAT with our family. So as it stands we will hopefully be adding a 7ish year old beautiful Ethiopian girl to our family very soon!!

Can anyone tell you no?? If they tried you'd just whine and cry until you got your way.
