That is so exciting! Couldn't be happier for you two. Hope you get to meet Easton very, very soon!

Yeah! I know that is a wonderful feeling! Looking forward to following your adoption!

Naomi said...

Congratulations!!! I am excited to follow you to ET!! We adopted a little girl from China last June with AW and are praying about ET or Rwanda next!! Adoption is the most wonderful thing ever and we feel so blessed to have been part of His plan!!

I would also love to buy a T-shirt but live here in England. However I could have you send it to my In-laws in NJ because we are actually in the process of moving back to the States this Spring! They really are great and I would love one for my husband!!

Blessings to you,

Sharon said...

Hi Ashlie!

I have really enjoyed your blog! I have drawn alot of inspiration from it and have decided to start one as well. My husband and I are in the starting the process of adopting a child from Ethiopia. Feel free to check out and "follow" my blog if you'd like! :)


Ryan and Ashlie said...

thanks Holly!!!! What agency are you using? I don't see a "follow me" button...any suggestions?

Holly said...

Hi Ashlie!

Actually, I was just encouraging people to sign up as a follower of my blog, and it looks like you are now...thanks! :) We are using Bethany Christian Services. We are going to officially apply on Friday once we meet with the social worker who is going to be doing our homestudy. So, we are just at the very beginning stages right now. :)

I look forward to following more of your blog! I LOVE the t-shirts and necklaces! I may be ordering some soon!

Take Care!

Ryan and Ashlie said...

Wonderful Holly! I hope your homestudy goes well! It felt so good to have our finalized homestudy in our hands! The Lord blessed us by finished our paper chasing phase in 5 Months! Now we are praying for a fast referral!!!

*I figured out how to "follow" you~ I just needed to refresh my screen! =)

Have a great week, Ashlie
