Referral-versary!!

Hard to believe one year ago today we received the phone call that would forever change our lives. Esubalew Yishak was to be our son. Barely three, living in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia - its been a year since that phone call. A year. A whole year. Time has flown by. Adoption is an amazing journey, today we celebrate, remembering the long wait for referral day. The joy when that day had finally arrived.
Read all about that amazing moment here.

One year ago!


And today!


Psalm 127:3 - Sons are a heritage from the LORD, children a reward from him.
