Hello! We are the Dunn Family, Andy, Brittlee, and Blakeley. We are thrilled are very excited to be going through the process of adopting from Africa! We are excited to see where God takes us on this great adventure. We originally began adopting through Zambia, but we feel that it would be better for our family to prusue an other country (you can read our Zambia adoption blog at http://www.babyzambia.blogspot.com/). After much prayer and wisdom from those who have been there...we decided to continue our process in Ethiopia.
Why are we adopting? We believe that we are called by God to pursue adoption. There are so many children in the world that need and deserve a loving family. It was estimated that by 2010, there will be more than 25 million orphans in Afirca alone!!! We started talking about our interest in adopting before we were married! We have always been drawn to Africa. In 2003, Andy and I went to Kenya on a missions trip. We knew then, that Africa would always have a huge part in our lives.
What is this Blog for? This Blog was created so you can follow along in our adventure. We hope that you will add us in your prayers. We will post how the application process is going and any prayer requests we have.
What can I do to help? First of all, Pray! We are asking for prayers for a quick adoption process, prayers that the Lord will be preparing our hearts for this new adventure and prayers that our baby will be healthy. We would be happy to answer any other questions you have! Please email us at email@example.com
Thank you !
The Dunn Family
