The Lord has faithfully provided wonderful fellowship for us with other families adopting from Ethiopia. When we first started the process we would meet these folks
for dinner at Ethiopian restaurants in Dallas and the reality of it seemed so far away. Now look at all of the beautiful children the Lord has brought home!! The Funderburks are about to move to Ethiopia (I'm so jelaous) and will be with my little man until we pass court and can travel.

I was blessed with the privilege of checking on all of the above kiddos as we traveled before they did. What a gift to tell them how very loved they already were and their parents were coming as fast as they could.

The Lord has started bringing families into our path that have or are in the process of adopting from Arlington. What a gift to have a group of people right here in our community. We had a gathering at our house last weekend and it was a blast.

Seriously, how cute are they?? Her folks are great- check them out here. Be sure to visit the new forum her daddy set up at

I have been waiting until I could officially post this and since she made it official on her
blog- I guess I can too!! This is a family that we have enjoyed so much this past year. They do science and Spanish with us and have been constant encouragers in all things Abe. :) Oh, and they happen to be buying the lot next door and we will be neighbors. Isn't the Lord just amazing how He works?? We couldn't be more thrilled that the Lord has called them to expand their family through adoption from Ethiopia!! Head on over and say welcome. Meet the Porters here.

How fun to have great families to hang out with (and live next door to)! What a blessing that God brought you all together through adoption. I'm constantly amazed to see how God uses adoption to work in our lives. It goes way beyond bringing a child into our families. I think - "all this, aaand You're giving us this sweet boy to love on?"
God is Good!
