Meet Jillian and Chase y'all!
I know. Adorable.
Jillian is the daughter of my dear, dear friend and former Aggie roommate Shir.
And no wonder, you say, that Jillian is adorable. Just look at her cute Mom!
Oh the fun that was had in Rm. 222 of Krueger Hall...
But enough about the past! This is about the very real present and the simply awesome future for Jillian, her Chase, and a unbelievably blessed child that God has already selected for them in Ethiopia.
Yes Jillian and Chase are diving headfirst into the very laborious process of international adoption. A process though long, that will ultimately end in forming a precious and perfect family. One that will fulfill the dreams of this couple to have a child and that will give a home to one of God's tiniest and most deserving children.
I can guarantee you that this child will be loved unconditionally, forever, and by a host of the most wonderful extended family ever.
I encourage you to hop over to Jill's blog Awaiting Ethiopia to read some of their story.
And then please visit Jill's Etsy shop at Awaiting Ethiopia on Etsy and support them by purchasing some of the adorable totally handmade kitchen towels, potholders, and other things that they offer to raise funds to help this adoption become a reality.
In case y'all didn't know adoptions are not without significant financial considerations!!
The items are so cute and timely for those looking to purchase some early Christmas gifts. And I might mention that there are some AGGIE THINGS to choose from!
(Um...Jill? I'm a slacker, so can I please reserve four of the Aggie potholders right now???)
And I know that as much as they would appreciate your support through the Etsy items, I'm sure they would also simply covet your prayers as they enter into this process. As a matter of fact, today starts their Home Study, an arduous and detailed three-day process that will be their final BIG STEP in getting everything going!
Blessings on you Jillian and Chase!
And the child who waits for you.
