God has blessed us with more than we could ever need. He has not blessed us so we can have the latest iPad, game console or a new car. We have been blessed to be a blessing.

Keep up with our adoption journey and get a peek into the Hollingsworth household.

Inching Up

We are slowly inching up the wait list. Last month we were number 22. This month we are number 21. This is the first month I felt disheartened by the lack of movement. At the same time, I can rejoice that adoptions all over Ethiopia have slowed down. No, this is not because the Embassy is not doing their job and the orphanages and transition homes can't move children through faster. It's because there are less babies being abandoned, less babies being left without parents, less babies whose relatives can't care for them. AND IN THAT I WILL REJOICE. YES, AND I WILL REJOICE! (PHILIPPIANS 1:(part of verse 18)).

  1. Hi April, I found your blog address on the facebok pg, we are a lifeline family. Just wondering about your statement that fewer babies are in need of permanent homes..... That would be awesome of course, but I was wondering where that info came from? Thanks!
