I had hoped to be writing on my blog today that we had decided to go full steam ahead as fast as we could with an adoption from Ethiopia for our fourth child. I spent all day yesterday researching the program, and looking at Ethiopian kids. But alas, my husband is just too practical-minded to go full steam ahead. We have a nice home and a good life, but we can't just go from $1000 fees for a second child in Ghana to $8,500 fee ($5000 to get started) to work with Adoption Guides in a night. We just can't put it on a credit card--literally can't.
