Chosen Marathon

Lace up those runnings shoes because will be participating in the Chosen Marathon for Adoption on Saturday, October 29, 2011 in New Braunfels, Texas.  We created the Scott Family Adoption Ethiopia team at  You can go directly to this link to sign up for the half (with Nicole) or full (with John) marathon.  Even if you do not run with us you can support us with prayers, spreading the word to friends who may want to run with us, cheering us on at the finish line, volunteering at the event, or simply making a donation on the website.  If you decide to make a donation, just make sure you note our team name: Scott Family Adoption Ethiopia.

Home Study and Other Updates

Sorry for the delay in posts.  We have been completely overwhelmed with home study and dossier documents.  Who know FBI fingerprinting could bring Nicole to tears?  (It's all taken care of now, check that off the list!)

The garage sale was nothing short of incredible.  We way surpassed our goal and could not ask for more.  If you haven't watched the video, please see below.

We are about three weeks into our home study.  Our social worker, Tinya, is the absolute best.  We are so lucky to have her!  The hardest part-the paperwork-is almost done.  Can't wait to check this off our list, just waiting on those fingerprints.  HA!

We are diligently working on our parent education.  We have six out of twenty chapters done in the workbook- sweet!  However, we are on a hold since Nicole is currently in Connecticut. We will hit the books again this weekend.  Then move along onto the online education.

There really is so much more to tell you- the upcoming marathon at the end of October, Nicole's quilt for our baby, our upcoming adventures with Ethiopian recipes, T-shirts (no we haven't forgotten see pics below), and our Advocare business- but we will save that for later in the week.

Please pass this site along to your family and friends.  So far everything has gone very smoothly, and we know that is because of your thoughts and prayers!  Keep it up and check in soon to find out more.
