The God Who Is Love, First Adopted Us...

It has been a little while since I've talked about our adoption here on Pisteuomen, but in this brief post, I want to say just a few things about it. First of all, it has been a lengthy process. By the time we fly to Ethiopia and return home (not exactly sure when that will be), this process will have taken about a year and a half. That's a long time to be "expecting". Regardless, we are so glad that some time in the near future, we will see our son.

Throughout the course of the adoption, numerous people have asked us questions like: Why are you adopting? Why from Ethiopia? How long does the process take? What does it cost? Will you have to travel? How can we help? Etc., etc.

Below is a short video that my wife and I created. We have sent this to a number of people and have played it in a couple of ecclesiastical settings. This video is a 3-minute attempt to capture our feelings about the adoption and to answer some of those questions. Please, if you have 3 minutes, watch this video and if you can, share it. Share this url with as many people possible. If you have a website or blog and can post it, please, do it for us. The cost for the adoption is about $30,000. We need all of the financial support and encouragement we can get in this process. If you have Facebook and can share it, please, do that. And if you are able to donate, there is a donate button below, just click it and make your donation. All proceeds will go towards our adoption (part of which goes toward building a brand new foster home in Ethiopia).

If you have any edifying thoughts or comments or even questions, feel free to share. Thanks, ahead of time.

You can help us bring our son home by clicking the donating button below and contributing to the financial aspects of our international adoption.

We will do our best to share more photos, news and video footage both here and at www.MichaelHalcomb.comprior to and upon our return from Ethiopia.
