We have taken the first two major steps in the adoption process!!! We have selected the organization and we have filled out the first application and paid our initial fees. So, out of 11 steps, we have fulfilled the first two.
We have decided to adopt through ChristianWorldAdoption. They are one of six organizations that work with Ethiopa (where we feel led to adopt from). Of the six, they have the best BetterBusinessBureau rating, which is a good thing. They are also Christian and unlike the others, they actually have housing for parents who must travel overseas. As you might imagine, we are soooooo excited about this. I'm glad it's finally underway and that we're not just talking about it any more.
