Originally, this blog was to update our families and friends about our pregnancy with Cora. You can read about her here. It was a deeply troubling time but it also strengthened our faith as a family. After losing Cora, we decided to push forth with our adoption plans. As a couple, we decided to adopt sometime in our future a while back and losing her made us realize time is short and there is a child out there waiting on us. During the time of prayer and decision, we found out that I was pregnancy with Lydia, who was then born on June 16th of this year. Then, after much prayer and deliberation…because, you know, logic…we decided on Ethiopia as our adoptive country. This blog’s purpose now is to inform family and friends in our process of said adoption and to educate others who may not be familiar or may decide to adopt into their family.
We’ve brought Abenezer home in January 2017 and are ecstatic to start this new adventure. We will continue blogging for now, mainly on adoption related issues. Go back to the beginning to learn about Cora’s story, how she led us to the adoption of Abenezer and the birth of Lydia.
