Adoption Update

We got word today that our girls' Ethiopian passports are ready!! ***

Our next step is for them to have their Embassy medical exam and then for all the documents to be submitted for translation.

 It looks like we are down to our last two months or less. God willing.

To think I could be holding those babies two months from now...end of August! Oh, I have tears.

***The passports have their E name and then my hubby's first and last name, until we can get to the states and finalize the adoption and their new names. But there is something very beautiful and powerful about thinking of them as their father's in that way. Not their own, not on their own. Always his. Wow, more tears.

I'm ever grateful of this process and journey of adoption. How would I ever have understood how deep the Father's love for us? How would I ever have fully understood my "Chosen-ness"? I've always known that Jesus wrote his name across my heart, but I see things more clearly through this process. It might be age, but I think it's God, never leaving me where I am, but always drawing closer to him, ever opening my eyes.

Wow, I can't believe how fast it all has gone- although I know it must feel like forever to you. How wonderful!!
