  11. Congratulations on starting the process again! Like you - we had two "older" kids when we felt the call to adopt from Ethiopia. We were so blessed by our first trip to Ethiopia in May 2008 to bring home 2 boys, that we did it again in June 2009 and brought home another boy and a girl! They are amazing kids and our hearts are still in Ethiopia.

    Blessings to you all!

  12. Well if you weren't announcing starting the process again BEFORE you read all these comments, you would be NOW! Kari, I'm so happy for you and your family.

  13. Amazing! You asked me to put you on my blog list as a family at home, but it seems I have to put you in the at home and the paper chasing categories!!! Yeah! Congratulations! My sis-n-law and bro are in the middle of their 2nd adoption through AWAA as well, and the second go round has been much faster and easier for them! Praying the same for you!

  14. I accidently deleted the eloquent, gushy comment I wrote--so I'll cut to the chase on this one :)

    I'm thrilled to read this (had to come here after reading your message today)!!! I'm excited beyond belief at the number of families who are paperchasing already, it's amazing! I actually opened the waiting child list from AW last week and (with my mom peering over my shoulder) was heartbroken by the faces of the children. I think my mom could see it on my face, she kindly reminded me of our current family situation (CHAOS). So, I have to pray for all of my dear YG families who are back in the trenches and figure out some way for God to use us (that doesn't require adding to our family).

    Many hugs,


The best is yet to come!!
