May I take your order?

We have been wanting to add to our family for some time now. We would like to adopt from Ethiopia again, we are hoping $20,000 drops from the sky to make this possible! I started an adoption journal about a year ago. I write an entry in every once in a while so our baby #3 (or baby #3 and #4) will know how much we were praying for him or her (or both) while we were waiting. I did this for Andrew and Annabelle and it was very theraputic as we waited. With this adoption journal, I am feeling more anxious. I don't know why, I just am. I think I know our baby (or babies) are out there waiting and I have no way to get to him or her (or them). We have a few friends who are expecting and it has made our kids even more excited about getting another baby. They talk about it all the time- it's so cute! They tell everyone, "we are waiting for our baby, it's coming soon!" I hope so sweet Andrew and Annabelle!
Today's conversation was with Annabelle and it went like this:
A- Gosh mommy, I really want a baby.
M- I know honey, me too! We just have to be patient and wait on God's timing.
A- I thought God was picking if the baby would be a boy or girl. He gets to choose when the baby comes?
M- Yes honey. I know it's hard to wait (trust me cutie- I KNOW).
A- Jillian is having a baby, Olivia is having a baby. Mom- hurry up and order our baby!
If only it was that easy!!!

Congratulations! I'm so excited for you! I was afraid that adoption was addictive. I already wonder what our future holds, and Allison isn't even home yet.
