A journal entry........

Well there is still no real news to report regarding our little darling. I heard on Friday from our social worker and she said she hopes to have our homestudy report complete by mid-October. That is really it for the news. Well and the other part......we are REQUESTING A GIRL!!!! We were originally not going to specify a gender, but as we have been talking and dreaming and excitedly planning on this and that....we decided to put our request before God. We earnestly prayed for His blessing on our hope for a little girl. Things just started to happen and be shown to us that it is in fact OK to request a girl. So we are. And we are naming her Nevaeh Lee ( pronounced NEV-A-YA). Lee is Steve's middle name and then we will keep her Ethiopian name as her second middle name.

I look forward to having more to report next time. Thanks to everyone for your prayers and encouragement and excitment for us.


  1. Isn't it amazing to now have a name attached to the dream of your daughter? :) It's beautiful.

  2. Hi there, I found your blog on Blogfrog. Friends of mine adopted a little girl from Kenya last year. They couldn't request anything as far as I know, but one day they just got the phone call "you have a little girl!". Good luck with everything, it'll be interesting to follow your blog!

  3. I was cruising through blog frog and found yours...we're another adoptive family, and always looking to connect! Good luck with your adoption process. I know it can be a rollercoaster ride, but hang in there!


  4. Hi i found you through blog frog... what a cute blog you have, and how great that you will be adopting! I have always wanted to adopt tho i already have 2 little ones of my own.

  5. Thanks for stopping by my blog!
