Two BIG things:
1. We got a court date! Really?! Everyone’s story of adoption is different but we never thought that Ethiopia would give us a day to appear in court so quickly. July 10th. Yep, that’s in 16 days! So we are kickin’ it into high gear, buying airline tickets and freaking out a little bit [actually a-lotta-bit]. Please pray for us as there are many details to figure out and line up before we leave to see Bruk and hold Bruk and kiss Bruk and make Bruk sick of big smiley blonde people. We can’t wait to see him! And I guess we won’t have to wait long!
2. If your the observant type you might have noticed that we like to share links to other blogs and organization on the right side of this page. One blog that we have grown very fond of is Give1Save1. It’s creative and informative but also has a beautiful “greater” purpose. An adopting family is featured every week and thousands of people get to hear that familie’s story. So, we submitted a video of our adoption story [the one we showed at the silent auction] and they picked us to be the family for this week! Many of you have already given so much to us so all we ask is that you share this video with your friends! We had lots of fun making it and think you’ll really enjoy it.
