What a difference a year makes…

Wow this day!!! So much swirling in my brain and yet I am not ready to reveal all that is going on. Let’s just say so much good has been going on lately in our dicernment phase of what is next in Ethiopia. I am telling you that if someone would have told me  afew short years ago that we would be feeling lead to advocate for many vulnerable and suffering children in Ethiopia I would have smiled and politely thought ot myself, not so sure about that. I stand in awe of where God has called my heart. It is so awesome there are rarely words. In fact we are rolling into the very week last year at this time that had us hopping before our first trip to Ethiopia. Oh how ourt hearts were changed and rearranged by such a charming and lovely people. Last year at thsi time we were learning what we needed to bring to aid our orphanage and we were carefully planning our days for the three young boys we would be leaving behind on our way to our daughter.

One year and three trips to Ethiopia later God is so at work in our lives. Ava is home, growing ad thriving.  She is well bonded to us all and the most lovely and charming little peanut. As a family we are striving and working to be more like Christ and we are hearing the powerful voice that is still calling us to Ethiopia. God we hear you and we are reminded every day just how many blessings have been bestowed upon us. Have a look for yourself…


You are an awesome God who guides our hearts and directs out paths. Saying yes is never easy but thank you for helping to slowly nudge us along. I am smiling as I type this post. Is it obvious?  This week we will be hanging at the beach and enjoying watching six boys and one little girl all interact as we share time with precious family. What a difference a year makes.
