After almost 7 months of being on the waiting list for our adoption, we found out yesterday that we are #5 on the list!

(What we are waiting for is a referral, or for the agency to match us with a little baby boy.)

This is BIG NEWS! There have been several referrals in the last few days alone, so we are thinking it won't be long at all until we know who our Arthur is! Needless to say, we are both losing our minds. We have both been dreaming about him and I haven't been able to control my emotions. I've been crying a lot. Haha. Of course.

Now, once we get the referral, we will owe another check to our agency that is about $8,500...

Thanks to you guys, we are close! We have raised and saved about $6,500 in the last few months since our last big payment was due. So, we are ALMOST there!

A mere $2,000 short.

Which brings me back to the puzzle we started...

You guys have been so generous with your giving and we are unbelievably overwhelmed by how much you guys care for us and little Arthur! It is so encouraging.

We have about 50 puzzle pieces accounted for, which means we still have about 290 pieces left to complete the puzzle.

With the $2,000 we lack for the referral fee, with the referral coming up quickly, and then with our travel to Ethiopia twice and a few more little fees in between, we are asking for your help again...

If you can, please donate by clicking the PayPal button on the right side of this page... It would mean the world to us.

And if you can't donate any money, we would still love your prayers. God is way bigger than any amount of money that stands in our way. And your prayers are so powerful in getting our boy home quickly.

Thank you guys again for all you have done and what you are doing. It is amazing to have you along with us on this journey!
