This morning I received a phone call from 
AWAA it was Melissa our FC letting me know
she had received our Dossier and everything
looked good. So it will be going out late
Thursday and be DTC Friday. Good Friday!
Who could ask for a more special time to 
celebrate.... When our Savior conquered 
death and rose from the grave!!

But he said to them,"Do not be alarmed . You seek Jesus
of Nazareth, who was crucified. HE IS RISEN!  
He is not here. See the place where they laid Him."
Mark 16:6

For God so loved the world that 
He gave His only begotten Son,
that whoever believes in Him
should not perish but have 
everlasting life.
For God did not send His Son
into the world to condemn the
world, but that the world 
through Him might be saved.
John 3:16,17

We praise and thank you Jesus.

Have a blessed and Happy Easter celebrating HE IS ALIVE!

PS~ Piper we are getting closer!!!


  1. Wonderful news!!

    Happy Easter:)

  2. That's great news!!! Congrats, and Happy Easter!!

  3. He has risen indeed! And what a relief to be DTC!!!

  4. I'm so excited for you guys. Go celebrate! Can't wait to follow your journey!

  5. Kathy Yipee!!!! Hope all is well. A reason to double celebrate this weekend. I know how good it feels.

  6. Kathy,

    I just discovered your blog today and am so glad I did! We are a previous AWAA family (we adopted our daughter Noelle from China in March 2008) and I like to check in with AWAA's Waiting Children yahoo group from time to time to see what is happening.

    I saw that your family is in the process to adopt an older waiting child!:) We are as well - from Taiwan!! Our daughter (hopefully!) will be turning 9 in July, and we are in the midst of our home study and paperwork for our agency. Going this older child adoption route is a real faith-builder for us, but God has SO been right there with us! I am enjoying locating and connecting with other Godly families on the same journey. That understanding and prayerful support is so helpful. I've bookmarked your blog so I can check back often. Our prayers are with you as you wait to be joined with your precious Piper!

    The Johnsons
    Jennifer, Eric and Noelle
    Please feel free to visit our Taiwan adoption blog:

  7. Yeah! What wonderful news! And how sweet is any news that brings you deeper into the Lord's presence.

  8. So happy for you all - closer now!

  9. Hi, I came over from Jennifer's blog. I didn't know you had one! We are *hoping* to have some news soon. Waiting, waiting, waiting. We too have a 3-year-old daughter and 2 sons. We hope to add another child and this child is older too. Would it be OK if I linked your blog from mine (helps me remember to check in :)? We don't know when we'll ever be DTC! Congratulations on this huge milestone!!!
