Full circle

Exactly one year ago this weekend Chad and I were at the mid-Atlantic Orphan Summit. It was there that we made the firm decision to adopt a little girl from Ethiopia. Well, we have come full circle. I am pounding out this little post from my cell phone because we are on our way to the airport to pick up our daughter, Ruby, in Ethiopia...and bring her HOME!!!!! We got the email saying that our case had been cleared by the embassy just a little less than 48 hours ago, and it has been chaos ever since:) thank you all for your prayers and support these last months as we have been waiting. Our God has truly brought our family full circle from a year ago...here's to the best orphan Sunday ever!!!
