Not only am I turning into my mother...I'm also turning into my elder sister-in-law, Leslie ( I just call her sis). Today we went to Hy Vee and guess what I bought and had for snack time...Pita chips (from the Healthy eating department) and HUMMUS! Wow, and you know what I enjoyed it...there, I said it, I enjoyed it. Thanks, Leslie for showing me the light. :) (This is not to say I didn't follow it up with cookie dough, cuz I'd be lying if I said I didn't, but I started on the right track).
Speaking of Leslie. HUGE news. She, her husband and my two nephews ARE ADOPTING FROM ETHIOPIA!!!!!!!!!! Not just from Ethiopia, but from our agency. This means there is a good chance their daughter will come from the same area as our son and she will most definitely have been in the very same care center as Tariku. I cannot believe God could be this good. What a blessing! They have been the most supportive through our entire process and we knew they were considering an adoption of their own. It's safe to say they were at the top of our prayer list for quite some time. So happy to have them experience this amazing thing called adoption (don't ask Jody about it though...). So please welcome them into this huge adoption family. She's an amazing writer so I'm currently trying to talk her into an adoption blog. :)
Anyway, I love her, I love them and I CANNOT wait to get a picture of my niece and show you all.
