Summer Vacation and Adoption Update!

    Sometimes, no news is good news. For the last 9 months, that has been the case. We officially submitted our dossier in November of 2013 for our Ethiopian adoption. At that time, we believed our referral would come within 12 months. (A "referral" means the official match between an orphan and a family) Although we have only waited 9 months,  I'm hopeful that we are getting closer to seeing our daughter for the first time.  Unofficially, we are family #6 waiting for our referral. I believe that we could receive our referral call as early as October, however, it could be late into the Spring.  Either way, we continue to patiently wait for God's timing. Thankfully, Easton and Preston have kept us busy throughout this waiting process. I am so thankful for the friends and family who continue to pray for our family and daughter.

   Our summer was filled with trips to the beach, hours in the pool, picnicking at our local parks, and a 21 day road trip to Ohio and Pennsylvania. We had a traditional summer vacation, staying in 8 different houses, with family and friends. The pictures below retell our summer adventure!

 Thank you for taking the time to check in on our Fulmer Family! We appreciate your support and look forward to the day that we can announce exciting adoption news!
