They said YES

Easter Sunday 2011 was one we will never forget for the rest of our lives.

It was such an amazing day and I promise to post details when we are home and have some time to process it all (as well as better internet!)

For now, I just wanted you all to know that:

THEY SAID YES.

N and M have been our children in our hearts for 7 months. But today, Easter Sunday 2011 in Ethiopia- Randy and I became Mom and Dad to them in their hearts. They were smiling from ear to ear when we told them and it was the most calm, natural thing for them to say YES. It was like they had just been waiting for us to ask! They love us and want to be adopted into our family. We are on cloud nine and have no idea how we are ever going to say goodbye very soon. We LOVE them SO much and we were in tears to hear that they LOVE us TOO!

There is so much more to say, but I will leave it for later. For now we are simply resting in the beautiful, marvelous sovereignty of our Lord and His amazing perfect plan. We have prayed and dreamed of this day for 7 months and the Lord has answered that prayer in ways beyond what we could ever ask or imagine. Thank you for standing with us in prayer. We cannot wait for you to see pictures from today and of course for you to eventually meet our two beautiful amazing kids! God is so good!

Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.

Ephesians 3:20-21
