When we first started the adoption process, and up until just recently, we had decided not to name our daughter until we knew more about her. We wanted to consider keeping her name, or maybe just tweaking it a little. We wanted to see her sweet face in a picture. Then we realized...it's hard to pray for and care for someone you don't know, who is very far away. Once we started talking and praying using her name, instead of "our daughter", I've felt a deeper sense of longing for her. I have a beautiful baby girl in Ethiopia that I can pray for by name! It's so exciting to know that God has orchestrated this and he knows exactly who she is and that she will be perfect for our family.
We have been blessed to feel Gods calling in our lives to adopt a child from Ethiopia. We are requesting a little girl to even things up a bit in our family. If you follow us on this blog please be praying for us along the way.
