News from Ethiopia

Great news from Ethiopia today! We got an email from our agency stating that MOWA, the government agency that oversees adoption in Ethiopia, is still processing 40 adoptions every day and it looks like they are going to stay at that rate indefinitely. This is the news we were hoping to hear. If you read our previous entries then you know that MOWA at one time was considering cutting back to only five adoptions per day. Had they done that, our adoption could have taken three years longer or more. We’re so thankful that won’t be the case.

Thanks to those of you who prayed about this. We’re so grateful. We would have been content with whatever God deemed best, but we’re especially glad that things turned out this way.

My name is Les Brown - not The Les Brown - just Les Brown. I'm married to the lovely and adorable SuperWife, Desi Brown. Together we're blessed with six IncrediKids - Abbie, Paul, Luke, Joshua, Bella, and Lilly, and we're hoping for more. All things considered, I live a fairly normal life - I work, lead my family, spend time with friends, and try to figure out how to do all of this in the way God intends. Not always easy. I started this blog out of a desire to create community with other Big Family Dads. There's definitely a bunch of us out there and though I don't have all the answers, I do understand a lot of the questions. I'm hoping to be an encouragement and to provide some great tools and resources for other dads.
