I received my monthly update from New Day on Ethan. His nanny said ..."Ethan is a healthy boy who has become much taller and stronger than before. His great appetite is proof that he has recovered very well from his surgery. He lives in the same room as he used to. Ethan seems to be more grown-up now. He likes his classes, especially his English class. He also enjoys listening to stories. He has an amazing memory. He can repeat a story he has heard only once. Ethan is very smart and tidy. He gets dressed by himself every day." What a sweet and smart little boy he is! I cannot wait to bring him home!
"Sometimes I'd like to ask God why He allows poverty, famine and injustice when He could do something about it. But I'm afraid God might ask me the same question."

You don't have to adopt to make a difference in these children's lives!


I have a blog! How exciting is that?! I've been following numerous blogs and wishing I had my own, however...the whole "blog" concept was just beyond me. Thanks to my Angel on Earth...Erin and her very talented friend Jen...I now have the perfect blog with the perfect name! During our homestudy, we were told that we should have a story to share with Ethan. Madeline wrote our story about the stars and Ethan that night. And Jen incorporated into "Written in the stars"...see, perfect!
In reading everyone's blog...they all keep track of every date. I haven't been doing that. I know that we locked in Ethan on our way to the beach the end of April. And less than 4 days later, we got our pre-approval. We finished our homestudy and our parenting classes and FINALLY our I-800A was overnighted today! Now what? I have no idea...I just email Erin and she tells me what to do next. Told you she was an angel!
I will figure out how to add video and pictures and all that other cool stuff soon...for now, a post is pretty exciting!
Thank you Erin and Jen...I love my blog!
