Finally Got that Number!

Yep.  We are officially on the waitlist!

It has taken a full year since God said "GO" and we began this adoption process.  I never expected then that it would take this long for us to even get on the waitlist, but I'm clinging (daily) to God's perfect timing.

We'll get our updated waitlist number each month and will be praying for it to drop quickly as more and more little ones find their forever families!

For now, our number is huge.  Depressingly huge when you consider how long the wait could be.  But amazingly huge when you consider how many families are living out God's heart for adoption!

Chad has some hanging to do and then I'll be able to show a new area in our kitchen that will display our waitlist number and serve as a beautiful reminder to pray for the nations, orphans, and Easton!

Our sweet girl seriously asks every few days when we are going to fly over to Ethiopia and bring Easton home?  Or she'll ask if we've gotten the call yet because she is really ready to meet her brother.  So precious and heartbreaking at the same time!

Easton . . . you have a family that loves you so much and is counting the days until you are with us forever! (Of course mommy is taking every picture, but rest assured, I love you too!)


  1. Congratulations, Cole!!!! This is the beginning of a beautiful walk and I am thankful to walk it with you!

  2. Yay, for a number. Praying you will have Easton in your arms sooner than you think!

  3. Yay!!!!!! Wonderful news!!!! :-)
