After lots and lots of prayer, consideration and FABULOUS input from all our adoption peeps...
....we have decided to start an Ethiopian adoption through
Lord willing we will be bringing home a little boy!
Thank you so much ALL YOUR HELP!!
Each one of you is DEEPLY appreciated! YOU ROCK!
There are some fantastic organizations out there doing great work in Ethiopia. We are grateful that you are all willing to share your experiences. It made the process SO MUCH EASIER!
We narrowed to about 6 agencies many of you said you loved. Then we looked at our specific needs with those agencies and got it whittled down to Holt and Gladney. In the end it was a draw and we went with Gladney cause it just felt right for us.
SO WE DID IT!! We filled out the preliminary application and sent it in with our family photo. Here's hoping we get accepted. Wouldn't THAT be awkward???? LOL! OOPSIE! Gladney hates us... never mind. OK! Hoping that doesn't happen. Hee hee hee...
So if you'd like to know a little more about Gladney the video below is a cool place to start! One of the things I love about Gladney is their focus on humanitarian efforts for the other 99% of orphans who won't join families. That is super important to me.
Any other blogger families in process with Gladney -Ethiopia out there??? How about just Ethiopia period?? I gotta start my blog stalking STAT!!!!
