good googly moogly!

Friday afternoon......I'm workin'...mindin' my business.....

phone rings.

Lesley Scott.....(our adoption rep).  'Hey, sit down' she says....

'Are we going to Ethiopia?' I ask...

'oh yeah, you are. How about next week.'

And so it started.....within two hours after our first conversation we had travel arrangements and tickets TO ETHIOPIA!!!!

Good googly moogly.....tonight has me researching the internet trying to find what to pack, what to do special for Ethan and Reagan, what to do special for Maggie Hilina......

My mind is in super-duper overdrive!

I can't seem to turn it off.

I mean we are going to meet our daughter! do you do that?  What do I say?  What gifts do I take her?

I am wonderfully blessed to be surrounded by an amazing church family who have asked me - what can we do to help?  The only thing I know to do is to ask for you to pray.

Pray for a hedge of protection around the kids and us as we travel.
Pray for our family to have peace.  (trying to keep my anxiety in check)
Pray for my kiddos who other than a few overnight stays with grandparents - have never been without momma and daddy close.
Pray for some of my dear, dear friends who have volunteered to take on the challenge of adding two lil' ones to their home for the week.
Pray for Maggie Hilina to receive Eric and I in a positive way.
Pray for our health and safety.
Pray that we pass court with no problems and no delays.
Pray that we have internet service.

...The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.” James 5:16 ESV

Now on other note, I adore Ordinary Hero and saw this....thought I would share with you.


  1. We are praying for you guys and Maggie! Safe travels! Can't wait to hear how it goes!
