Reasons Why

When people ask, "Why Ethiopia?", I don't usually have a very concrete answer about what led me to this country. I can't really say God has ever spoken to me, and I sure hope He is humerous. I can see Him stating the many times He has spoken to me, and I never knew... I do want to share a video I watched on a fellow Texan's blog. (You have to stop the Ipod on the right fromplaying in order to watch the video.) Our family loves American Idol, and I actually watched this video when it aired last year which was before we started this process. Maybe that was a way God helped me to choose Ethiopia, and I was just now reminded of it when I read Emily's blog... Thanks Emily even though we don't know each other....

I wanted to adopt for many, many years. I prayed for God to soften my husband's heart toward adoption. I prayed for the children we would have. My husband would laugh and ask why I was always getting adoption update emails and stuff in the mail about adoption. It was after we watched that video that you just posted that my husband leaned over and said, "OK." Beautifully put! Thanks!
