We’ve enjoyed our leap into 2009!!
We had dinner with Ryan (from Springfield) & Anna on New Year’s Eve, then hung around the house on New Year’s day & met several of our neighbors (BTW, some gave us a ton of boy clothes…thanks Holley & Geoff)!! Oh – and, of course, watched some football.
Yesterday, we made a trip to a local clinic to get yet ANOTHER physical exam for yet ANOTHER home study update…insane, I know. But it was a great experience! Our physician was so encouraging about our adoption – and, he prayed for us, Little Martin & our new ministry here at HSBC. What a blessing!!
Other than that, I‘ve been like a mad-woman getting ready for our trip to Ethiopia. It really is quite an undertaking…doubled, since I’m a first-time mommy. Bottles, clothes, meds, diapers…donations...plus, all the gear that we’ll need as soon as we land in Birmingham. I must admit, it’s so much fun getting prepared for our little guy (praying every step of the way)!!
Thank all you for your continued prayers:
- Little Martin’s physical, mental, emotional & spiritual health!
- A successful court appointment on 2/2/2009!
- For Vince & I to enjoy each other while we’re still “2”!
- For our diligent spiritual & emotional preparation to be parents!
