We interrupt our regularly scheduled Christmas posting to share some very exciting news: my sister Erica and her family have just announced their decision to adopt a child from Ethiopia! Let me tell you, Dad and Mom's family is growing in leaps and bounds. All three of my brothers and their wives are expecting babies during the next few months, and now there could possibly be a fourth new grandchild joining the family in 2010!
Erica and her husband Chris have been married for almost 10 years, and they have 4 great kids - 2 boys and 2 girls - ages 3 1/2 to almost 9.
God has been moving in their hearts for quite a while now, and they have an amazing story to tell. I'm hoping that I can talk them into starting a blog (hint, hint!) but they need to actually get internet access first. It has been so wonderful to watch the way that God has led them to this decision - so much of their story mirrors things that David and I went through a year and a half ago. We ask for your prayers on their behalf as they enter this overwhelming, awe-inspiring, heartbreaking world of international adoption, and we can't wait to meet the little person that God has in store for them!
