All God's Children to do an Ethiopian adoption! Oh yeah, by this time we were already nuts and just heading down the slope :)
our agency's transitional home) for over 60 children needing a home.
All God's Children International.
. We signed up with Christian Adoption Consultants on March 22nd.....we were given a possible situation right away of a little boy who needed a home and we thought this was it.....but BUMP the agency started asking all kinds of accusing questions of our large family and on March 23rd Joanna Faith Wright was being born. We got a call from Tracie Loux again saying I know you may not be interested, but.....and when we called Mother Goose Adoptions we did it out of - well maybe. (*****UPDATE: we now work with CAC :).
Deb O'Kane calling us from Mother Goose Adoptions saying she is yours if you want her.....want to fly out today. Well let's just say after the other agency's hesitancy and our hearts saying "is there a reason not to?" And well within 24 hours I was on a plane to go meet our Joanna Faith Wright!
For the first time since 2001.....we are not in the process for our next adoption- I KNOW SHOCK!!! I am still in shock. I keep feeling like I should be getting some paperwork done of some kind or going to the court or something???? Will we adopt again.......always! But for now....we are taking a break. Of course there is a reason why.....but that will unfold over the 2011 year. So keep tuned to the crazy happenings of The Wright Family and Have a Blessed New Year!!!

Some random fun, love Jonathan with banana sticker on his head as you do right?
HERE to check it out they have stickers, shirts, etc. LOVE this simple great slogan because it is sooo true. That is what a child wants...love, a family, somewhere to belong! Of course I think it looks great on our 15 passenger :)
These pics are of our baby girl doing anything for a laugh!! If you can't see it on the last one she is squishing her face up when she laughs. Which is sooo CUTE! I love it. And of course daddy blowing raspberries on her neck makes her giggle a lot :)
No matter how you celebrate Christmas I pray that your Christmas week has been a true BLESSING remembering HIM! I pray that this week will be equally wonderful as many of you get to have your children and family around additional time.
Of course we here at the Wright home have already started back to school and are so thankful for this past year. And looking forward to this next year of growing and celebrating God together. BLESSINGS!
