28 months and good news

Today marks 28 months on the waiting list.  Usually I kinda dread the 11th of the month-but try to remember what my sister, Kristianna once told me- I am not one month farther, but one closer to my baby(ies)- hooray!!

I woke up this morning with to an email update from our agency.  The update was to inform us that a region of Ethiopia, Tigray, has recently re-opened for adoptions.  This region was placed on hold months ago and we have been praying boldly for the Lord to open it up.

Well, He did it.  🙂

Talk about an answer to prayer! Hallelujah!

I have goosebumps thinking about this news- thinking of all the children that will now be able to be matched in families-thinking of our babies and getting that call.

Seriously, that call.

The heavens will open with the joy that will surround us.

I can’t even imagine what I will do, how I will act.  It will be surreal.

Like I say every night, maybe tomorrow….


Last night was a glorious night.  My mom and I went for a nice walk around the neighborhood.  It was nice to get out and enjoy the weather and to talk with my mama.

For dinner, I made vodka sauce with vegetables and ground turkey.


I made this with spaghetti squash, which is one of my favorites.  I love the flavor of the vegetable and the fact that I can enjoy a pasta dish without all the calories of the actual pasta.  I love to have my sauce right in the squash- like a spaghetti squash boat.


Sprinkle a little cheese on top & enjoy 🙂 This dinner was so good and so filling!

This morning I woke up and did my 1 mile + Jillian Yoga Meltdown.  I love starting my day off with yoga; it is so peaceful.

I really felt the daylight savings hour this afternoon and evening because I am so ready for bed! Going to enjoy an early bedtime tonight.

I will be going to bed with a smile on my face.  Praying that we do not see 29 months.  Praying that this is OUR MONTH! 🙂
