We've Been Accepted!!!

Finally, I can breathe a little bit easier!! We got a call from Children's Hope yesterday and they told us that we'd been approved to adopt from Ethiopia!! Now, that doesn't mean that there won't be other hurdles down the road (like when they uncover the pictures of Todd in his KISS make-up...), but apparently the agency sees us as a "good risk"! Next step: they're sending us a packet in the mail to get started with the home study!!

As I sat alone on the back patio this morning, the song running through my mind....
How can I keep from singing your praise?
How could I ever say enough?
How amazing is your love?
How can I keep from shouting your name?
I know I am loved by the King, and it makes my heart wanna sing!!
