Still Here

Wow!
It's been a while since I have blogged here. It's been a whirlwind of activity and blessings abound.

Not much happening on the adoption front. We have our finger print appointment on June 3 with USCIS. I am really excited about that and it happened pretty quickly. I am now working on getting all things notarized so that when the I171H comes in I can immediately send it in to the agency and begin the next step.

We did get confirmation that we should be able to meet both boys while in Ethiopia!!! YAY!! So so sad D won't be there to do that, but S, mom and I will be there and can give them our welcome bags in person. How cool is that?!

Our mission trip is officially FULLY FUNDED! Seriously I should have been chronicling is all so that you could see all the amazing ways He's been funding it. We have been getting big donations from places we had no idea they would be coming from! And tiny donations that remind me of the lady with the one copper penny. It's truly been awe-inspiring!

We have met some amazing people and just seen God in action all over the place.

I was talking to my friend L the other day saying that my prayer has become that I allow God to take ALL the glory... so much has happened over the last couple of weeks that I felt a twinge of Pride coming in and man did I want to squelch that quick!!!

I am PROUD of our team and our accomplishments, but I sure want to be careful not to let it be about anything I have done. I have worked hard and made the effort, but God is the one rewarding and providing. I joked on F-B that I had prayed one night about God taking my pride away and then the next morning gave me an N with attitude. :) He knows just how to answer prayers doesn't he?

So we are less than a month from our trip. Everything is coming together, and I am less than a month from seeing my new sons. Man...how does it get better than that?!
