And the Winner is...

Thank you so much for keeping up with our blog and for entering to win the CCC HOPE letter art!  We had 24 entries in our giveaway (not bad for our first one!).  I used a Random Number Generator from to get our winner.   And the winner is...
Congratulations, Amber Strickland!!  I will get in touch with you about getting your art to you!

I have to be honest, though, I actually feel like the one that won a prize, because, at the end of a long and trying week, this...
was in our mailbox!!  Our fingerprinting appointments!  So, on December 1st, we will be roadtripping to Fort Smith, Arkansas to get our biometrics taken.  I am beside myself excited!  First of all, this is a major step in our process and secondly, after reading a blog that I follow, I was led to believe this process could take up to six months (as I mentioned a couple of posts ago).  Needless to say, I was pleasantly surprised when Trev told me that the appointment letters were in our mailbox.

Mr. Camden has been saying his last two months' memory verses from pre-school over and over, so I thought with this great news, it would be a perfect time to share them with you.

Have a blessed weekend!


  1. awesome news and story. Love Camden video and him blowing the kiss! Wonderful! What a way to start of the holiday season. Blessings to you and your family with lots of love from the Cosby's!

  2. That is great that you got some exciting news in the mail!!!! I cannot believe it's getting closer and closer! I cannot wait for you to extend your family!

  3. Thanks so much for your message! I just checked your blog this weekend and rejoiced when I saw you got your fingerprinting date! Ever since I found your blog I've been secretly hoping we would meet up in Ethiopia someday...

    Have a blessed Thanksgiving!
