Annie Updates

Our sweet baby girl is getting so big. She is 7 months old now and she is growing like a weed. We were so blessed to have gotten video and pictures from a group that went on a mission trip with our agency. I have watched it over and over and over again. Plus, we got new pictures this past week and OH.MY.WORD. She is the cutest little baby girl I have ever laid my eyes on. She's sitting up now and it sounds like she might be a diva. She likes special attention!! No problem there! I cannot wait to pick her up and hold her in my arms. We are hoping to hear about a court date after they re-open on October 6th. 3 more weeks!!!! Time is flying by. I haven't even had a chance to work on her room. It has been good for me to be so busy that I don't have time to focus on how much I miss her. She will be home with us so very soon! Joel and my parents just went and got all of their shots for travel and we are getting so close to our fundraising goal. God has been so good to us and blessed us beyond measure.

Be a Piece of the Puzzle

God is moving so quickly on our behalf and we are so excited.  We will hopefully travel for our first trip to go see Annie and for our court date at the end of October.  Then, we will come back home and wait until we have all of her documents processed through the US Embassy to go back and bring Annie home FOREVER!  This means we have to pay for two trips to go to Ethiopia.  We are asking for each one of you to consider being a part of our journey to bring Annie home to her forever family.  Every person that donates toward our adoption becomes a part of our story.

*We have a 675 piece puzzle that I have painted.  Each piece symbolizes someone who will help bring Annie home.
*Each piece is $15
*You may choose to be one piece of the puzzle or several pieces.
*Your name will be written on the puzzle piece
After the puzzle is complete, we will hang this in her room and we will always be able to see the people that were a part of her story.  We will see the hundreds of people that prayed for her and lifted us up along the way. Thank you for opening your heart and prayerfully considering being a part of the puzzle.
