Official Referral!!

Today we received our official referral from Ethiopia. It was a little anti-climatic as we already knew who we are adopting, but it was still exciting. We received some new pictures and a much more extensive history of her and her medical needs. It was a little daunting seeing all of her medical needs down on paper and for a second there I really wanted to run. But it didn't work so well for Jonah when he ignored what God told him to do, so we are accepting the referral and moving on.
