Dear friends, family, fellow saints,
I am quite positive that I haven't been able to share the news with all of you...so here it is! Chris and I are in the midst of the process of adopting a baby from Ethiopia. We both have had a desire to adopt for some time and have been praying about it. We made our final decision during this last Spring Break. Needless to say, we are very excited!
We are working with America World Adoption (www.awaa.org), based out of Virginia. We attended one of their information sessions with some good friends who are also adopting from Ethiopia and were drawn to their solid theological basis for the blessedness of adoption. They helped us solidify our perspective that when a child is placed with a family, this was God's plan from the beginning of the world.
We have our first home study appointment tomorrow afternoon. Please pray that everything would go smoothly and that we find favor with the home study social worker. We would very much appreciate all of our prayers as we begin this part of our adoption. Also, we have various paperwork send out to various government agencies. Please pray that these agencies would move quickly and fairly with our case.
Thank you for being a part of our lives, past and present. We love you all very much.
In Him Who is Able,
Chris & Anna Reno
