Sisters mean ...
bedrooms to rearrange
an extra seat squeezed into the family suburban
two more chairs around the breakfast table
bows and dresses and tights galore
extra years of shopping in 'the pink aisle' at Christmas
hopscotch and hula hoops 
ballet slippers and {gulp!} high heels

But most of all, sisters mean
abundant blessings!!

We are thrilled beyond belief to announce today that we have said, "YES!" to two precious sisters who are waiting in Ethiopia for their next family.  We have seen their beautiful faces, and we are in love!  We can't divulge many details online for a while, but we can tell you that they are 4 and 5 years old.  

As with all things in international adoption, nothing is certain until we are all on a plane together and headed home.  Please pray that happens as smoothly and as quickly as possible!
